Borehole water test report

The borehole water test report.

 Testing of your borehole water is critical.

Before we can give you any advice we need a borehole water test report from an accredited laboratory. Not a water shop report.

Understanding Borehole Water Test Report.

To be able to understand the water test report you can get a clean understanding of the status of the borehole water quality.
Begin at the top of your water report and work down the elements by consulting the website.

Let’s begin with E.coli.
You notice that there is some E.coli present in the borehole water.
The web page indicated that there must be none.
To get more information about E.coli.
All you have to do is to click on the E.coli word.
That will open the web page discussing all you need to know about E.coli.
We would assist you if you need help and advice.
