Good-quality water is a vital substance for all organisms. That is why its quality is so important. The deteriorating state of water quality makes it necessary to intensify their control, including microbiological testing.
WESSLING Polska as a laboratory with accreditation with a specialization in making complex tests and analysis of environment can offer you the following services:
Each of the above-mentioned types of water is subject to separate legal regulations, which define in detail the methods of monitoring and the scope of analysis of the most important physicochemical and microbiological parameters.
There are several guidelines suggesting that microbiological water analysis should be performed. Belong to them:
Clean, drinkable water should be colorless and perfectly clear. Cloudiness or yellowing may indicate the presence of hazardous chemicals from the wastewater, soil, bloom or colloids. The owners of dug or deep wells should pay particular attention to microbiological analysis. In this case, monitoring should be carried out immediately after taking the shot, and then at least once a year.
The most important benefit of microbiological water analysis is the prevention of adverse health effects caused by harmful pathogenic microorganisms. For example, inhaling an aerosol of water droplets contaminated with Legionella bacteria or choking on it can lead to legionellosis - a disease characterized by coughing, fever and respiratory disorders. Equally dangerous are the effects of the ingress of another common bacterial strain - Escherichia coli. In this case, you can expect digestive system disorders - vomiting, acute diarrhea, cramping abdominal pain.
Performing a microbiological analysis is particularly important for the owners of gastronomic establishments. Pursuant to the Regulation of the Minister of Health of April 26, 2004, such facilities are required to provide water that meets the accepted standards. Its quality is regularly (usually once a year) controlled by the local branch of the Sanitary and Epidemiological Inspection.
