Smiling-Scientist Testing Drinking Water

Water Testing at Vintessential Laboratories Hobart Tasmania

Did you know that Vintessential Laboratories in North Hobart, Tasmania has been operating now for almost 3 years?! How time flies. As well as our usual beverage and wine testing services, we have seen great demand in providing fast, reliable analysis of drinking, irrigation, effluent and bore water. That means whether your water is smelling funky, is coming out of the tap an odd colour or if you have been pondering whether your illness is due to E.coli in your water, Vintessential is here to help.

If you live in Tasmania, you will know that there have been E.coli outbreaks in previous years throughout Hobart and it isn’t uncommon for animals to find their way into water tanks causing E.coli to occur in tank drinking water. The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) and us here at Vintessential Laboratories both recommended having your drinking water tested regularly.

Not only do we offer testing of your drinking water, but we also test for common chemical analysis required for irrigation purposes and for wastewater (effluent water) from wineries, distilleries, breweries and cideries.

We have the following water testing bundles available for purchase:

The Vintessential Drinking Water Test Bundle Extra:  Will test your water for Calcium, Electrical Conductivity, Copper, Hardness, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium Adsorption Ratio (PAR), pH, Potassium, Salinity, Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), Sodium as well as E. coli or other harmful microbes, indicating its suitability for use as drinking water.

The Vintessential Effluent Water Test Bundle: Will test for Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Electrical Conductivity, pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Nitrate/Nitrite, Total Nitrogen, Total Phosphorus and Total Suspended Solids.

The Vintessential Irrigation Water Test Bundle: This bundle of analyses has been selected to assess common analytes that will affect plant growth.
