Bacteriological/ Microbiological and Chemical sampling is a very important for monitoring water quality. Typical testing methods are listed below.
If you have a specific problem / concern please provide as much information as possible to our staff who will endeavour to assist you in identifying the most suitable tests to perform.
It is of paramount importance that you are careful not to contaminate the sample in any way as everyone has a large number of bacteria on their hands all the time. Samples should ideally be taken from the main tap closest to the source / well and before any water treatment units (filters or softeners) or storage tanks.
DO NOT allow the bottle to overflow, as it contains sodium thiosulphate. Replace the cap immediately making sure that it is properly sealed.
Complete the Analysis Request Form below and return samples to the laboratory as soon as possible - ideally within 2-3 hours of sampling. Please deliver your drinking water samples to one of the ALS locations or a TopTrans collection point. Branches of ALS (collection point in Bratislava and laboratory in Rimavská) and TOPTRANS collection points are listed here.
Pay the Fee for your test. All major credit and debit cards accepted. We will despatch the sample bottles the same day.
Bottles can be dropped off at any of our sites or you can return by post. To view a list of drop off points, please click here.
