If you are Private Domestic Householder or a Business owner in Ireland and are concerned about the safety of your drinking water, Fitz Scientific are an accredited Laboratory that can provide this drinking water testing service. We do not sell treatment systems or water filters system so we are therefore independent. It is advisable, before you purchase a system that an independent test is carried out on the water in advance. Fitz Scientific will carry out a suite of tests and provide you with a Certificate of Analysis of your drinking water. Based on these water test results and after the filtration system has been fitted we can then recheck the water to ensure the system is working properly for you.
A Drinking Water Test Kit can be ordered online and posted out to you within 2 working days. This kit contains bottles, gloves and instructions on how to take your drinking water sample properly. This can be ordered and paid for online here.
If you require an independent test, you can schedule a Technician from Fitz Scientific to call to your home and take the drinking water sample for you. The cost of this depends on your location so if you wish to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, location and phone number, we will reply to your query promptly.
