The Importance of Water Testing: What You Need to Know
Water testing is essential to ensure that your water supply is safe and clean. Contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, and chemicals can pose serious health risks if they are present in your drinking water. Regular testing can help you identify any potential issues and take steps to address them before they become a problem. It’s important to test your water at least once a year, and more frequently if you notice any changes in taste, odor, or color.
Techright Environmental is a trusted provider of water hygiene and Legionella control services, offering a wide range of water quality testing and in-field sampling options to both commercial and residential clients in Northern Ireland.
All water test samples are carefully analysed at a UKAS accredited laboratory, ensuring that the results are accurate and reliable. With a strong commitment to quality management, Techright Environmental is dedicated to providing the highest level of service to its customers.
How To Test Your Water for Legionella: A Step-by-Step Guide
If you suspect the presence of Legionella in your water system, it is important to conduct a thorough test to identify and address the issue. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to test for Legionella:
Our water technicians will:-
- Collect samples in a sterilised bottle (with sodium thiosulphate)
- Analysis will be carried out by a UKAS accredited laboratory
- Collating the results
- Report to our clients and creating a plan of action, if required
Our team of highly trained technicians can guide you through the process step by step. We will collect water samples and handle them with care to ensure accurate results. Routine sampling will give you an idea of the extent of bacteria in your system and how it is operating. Once we have analysed and evaluated the results, we will provide you with expert interpretation and recommendations to ensure your system is safe and compliant.
We also offer a range of tailored drinking water testing solutions to meet your specific needs. Our comprehensive testing includes microbiological and chemistry testing, as well as investigating potential sources of contamination by testing for multiple parameters. Trust us to provide you with an accurate and efficient service.

- Total Viable Count at 22°C and 37°C

The Importance of Regular Water Testing for Legionella
Regular testing for Legionella is crucial for businesses to ensure the safety of their employees and customers. By identifying and preventing the growth and spread of this dangerous bacteria, businesses can avoid the risk of outbreaks and potential legal liabilities. Regular testing can also help businesses comply with local and national regulations and guidelines for water safety. According to HSE guidelines “water samples should be analysed for Legionella periodically to demonstrate that bacteria counts are acceptable”. For a comprehensive understanding of the importance of Legionella testing, businesses can refer to our informative guide on the benefits of Legionella water testing.
We specialise in water quality testing and analysis, offering comprehensive services for testing water from a variety of sources. Whether it’s water from homes, commercial offices, factories, wells, boreholes, swimming pools, or industrial cooling towers, we have the expertise to provide accurate and reliable results. It is crucial to have water samples tested by a UKAS accredited laboratory, and we meet this requirement.
