Domestic & Commercial Drinking Water Test
More than 11% of Ireland’s population depends on private water supplies. However, if you’re not on mains water, the quality of your drinking water could be questionable. Depending on where you live, the quality of water can change dramatically.
Research by the EPA has found nearly a third of private wells in Ireland to be contaminated putting health at risk. Bacterial contamination of wells could make people ill particularly the elderly, young children and those who are immunocompromised.
The EPA recommends monitoring and testing of well water for bacteria annually and chemical parameters every three years.
