Ensuring Water Quality: A Guide to UKAS Water Sampling

At Pipe Testing Services, we prioritise water quality, and our commitment is evident in our rigorous UKAS water sampling and water control schemes. In this guide, we’ll delve into the significance of microbiological sampling, shedding light on when and why it’s crucial for your water systems.

UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) water sampling is a meticulous process aimed at evaluating the quality of water within diverse systems. This accreditation ensures that our sampling methods adhere to the highest industry standards, providing reliable and accurate results.

In the event of suspected contamination or water quality issues, immediate microbiological sampling is imperative. Swift action allows for the identification of the contaminant source and the implementation of corrective measures.


    When is Water Sampling Required?

    If there is any uncertainty, BS8554:2015 specifies the following situations where sampling is required:

    One-off sampling for compliance reasons
    Ad-hoc sampling as a verification method.
    Sampling to carry out an investigation.
    Random sampling.
    Identification and implementation of schemes for commissioning reasons and for investigative water quality monitoring.

    Importance of Water Safety and Testing

    Ensuring water safety is paramount for the well-being of individuals and communities. Regular water testing plays a crucial role in identifying potential contaminants and ensuring that water quality meets the required standards.
