Testing your private well's water quality on a regular basis is an important part of maintaining a safe and reliable source. The test results allow you to properly address the specific problems of a water supply. This will help ensure that the water source is being properly protected from potential contamination, and that appropriate treatment is selected and operating properly.

It is important to test the suitability of your water quality for its intended use, whether it be livestock watering, chemical spraying, or drinking water. This will assist you in making informed decisions about your water and how you use it. The quality of a water source may change over time, even suddenly. Changes can go unnoticed as the water may look, smell, and taste the same.

Borehole Water

In the summer of 2015 South Africa experienced the worst drought in 30 years and this has caused a terrible strain on the national water supply. Not only did this have devastating environmental effects on the country’s agriculture, but urban water supplies are at an all-time low. To make matters worse citizens can look forward to a price increases on the municipal water supplies, as well as large scale restrictions in many parts of the country. So the search is on for alternative sources of fresh water and the Borehole Water Association has stepped up with a campaign early in 2016 to get citizens in Johannesburg to start using groundwater from the boreholes in their back gardens, and Pretoria should soon follow suite.

There are a limited number of laboratories that undertake water quality testing in South Africa. More significantly, many of these laboratories have capacity limitations. These laboratories are a critical link in the value chain that ensures safe drinking water for consumers and unpolluted water in our water resources. Until recently there has been little focus on the quality control of the laboratories utilized in the testing of water. This has resulted in municipalities and the Department of Water Affairs (DWA) using both centres of excellence and those with little evidence of being able to produce reliable results. However, the most startling issue is that although the problem was acknowledged within the sector, it could not be quantified. How many laboratories are there? Where are they? What quality control measures do they have in place? sans 241 water testing cape town. Borehole Water Testing Cape Town Wellpoint Water Testing Cape Town
