Water Analysis

Water Analysis. A complete water analysis is important to determine the effects of dissolved ions on the EOR processes (especially the chemical methods) or to ascertain any potential water problems such as scale or corrosion that may result when EOR processes are implemented.Routine testing of household water is necessary to identify bacteria, viruses and parasites. Although governments and regulatory agencies are responsible for testing water regularly, accidents can happen. Therefore, you should test your own drinking water to determine the health and safety of your water supply. Water quality analysis is to measure the required parameters of water, following standard methods, to check whether they are in accordance with the standard.

The laboratory analyses water from all sources, underground, ground, municipal, production, bottled water, as well as effluent water source.

Included with the SABS 241 specification, microbiological analysis ;Total Plate Count , Coliforms and E.coli, is included.

• In cases of effluent water, heavy metals are analysed.

• In case of ground water, minerals and microscopy. Borehole water is analysed for
microbiological purity.

• Bottled water is analysed for minerals and any added supplements such as vitamins.

What is the importance of water analysis?

The Importance of Water Quality Testing. Water quality testing is important because it identifies contaminants and prevents water-borne diseases. Essentially, water quality testing makes sure that water is safe and meets local and international water standards.The principal methods used in the isolation of indicator organisms from water are the membrane-filtration (MF) method, the multiple-tube (MT) or most probable number (MPN) method and presence–absence tests. The chemical analysis of water provides insight into the health and workings of lakes, rivers, oceans, and groundwater. It also shows the limits of a waterbody's ability to take in some level of pollution without harming the water system, its aquatic plants and animals, and humans who may use the water.
