Domestic Drinking Water

Testing Domestic Water

We test private drinking water wells to our standard list of tests and/or to customer requirements. ALS Life Sciences advise that private well owners test their drinking water supply annually, particularly after a spell of bad weather to identify if treatment is required.

In the interest of keeping costs down, it is possible to drop off samples in Bratislava and Rimavská Sobota. This way you do not have to pay for shipping. If this is not convient, sample bottles can also be returned to our laboratories by TopTrans at your cost.
