If you are uncertain about the quality or lead content of your drinking water, or need a water test for a permit to use, feel free to contact us. You can easily order different types of drinking water tests online from our accredited laboratory.
Potable water testing
Often the water network in old apartment blocks and family houses is aged, as a result of which the quality of your drinking water may change.
Whether it is drinking, watering or filling up the pool, don’t leave things to chance! For an enjoyable water experience to be coupled with safety, it is important for you to know the composition of your water.
In the case of a drinking water test, you can choose, among others, from the following test packages at our online customer service:
- Microbiological testing
- Chemical testing
- Biological testing
- Lead content testing
- Arsenic testing
If you want to know the exact parameters of the groups, you can find them on our online customer service
or in the Complete Laboratory Test List
you will find all the parameters tested by our laboratory.
Choose the solution that suits you best from our drinking water testing groups available at our online customer service.
If you are having a water test done not only for your own use, we recommend that you consult with the competent body before ordering to make sure exactly what tests are required or whether accredited water sampling is required.
Water test required for permit for use
If the drinking water supply system was dismantled during some construction activity or a new drinking water supply system was built, a water test result must be presented to the appropriate authority before the permit for use is issued.
We recommend that you consult with the competent authority or the financial institution requesting the test before ordering to make sure exactly what tests are required or whether accredited water sampling is required.
Lead content testing
To this day, there are many buildings, flats in Hungary whose water supply network is made of lead piping built in the 1970s. If you want to know whether the drinking water of your property carries any lead hazard, order a lead content test online from our customer service
Why is it important to test lead content?
You can reach our information about water lead contents here >>
How do we test lead content?
We test lead from tap water in two ways, each of which is recommended to be ordered from a given sampling location, in order to determine how risky the property’s internal network is:
Lead testing without letting water run
Lead testing from a sample taken after opening the tap, in which case the water quality also characterizes the condition of the internal network. In the case of accredited sampling, we will perform the test without letting the water run, unless you request otherwise.
Lead testing with letting the water run
Lead test on a sample taken after running the sampling pin for at least 5 minutes.
You can find more detailed information on the sampling in the related documents.
Whether you need a drinking water test, a lead content test, or a water test for a permit for use, our laboratory is at your disposal for accredited drinking water sampling, performing tests and evaluating the results.
