In addition to trace elements, minerals and salts, our drinking water also contains various bacteria. Drinking water can also be contaminated with germs.

First of all, this is nothing bad, because bacteria are an important part of our body. Their intake and presence are important for the composition of our intestinal flora.

However, there are also undesirable bacteria that are harmful to us. Ingesting too much of them can pose health risks.

Germs often indicate fecal contamination of the water. Legionella poses a serious health risk. If they occur in drinking water in too high concentrations, they can cause Legionnaires' disease. In humans, this can manifest itself in pneumonia, fever, chills, dry cough, and headaches and aching limbs.

Escherichia coli is a harmless intestinal bacterium. However, its detection indicates contamination with feces. E. coli often overgrows dangerous germs such as salmonella, campylobacter or streptococci and manipulates the detection of these. The presence of E. coli is therefore an important indicator of various harmful germs.

Coliform bacteria (genera Citrobacter, Enterobacter, Escherichia and Klebsiella) are also considered indicator organisms for the quality of drinking water.

The microbiological drinking water analysis also examines the contamination by enterococci . Evidence indicates faecal contamination some time ago.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is considered a major hospital germ. It can cause gastrointestinal diseases and infections of the skin and ears.

The bacterium Clostridium perfringens can indicate the presence of parasites in drinking water such as Cryotsoridia or Giardia, which are considered to be very resistant.

At a glance:

The microbiological drinking water analysis examines your drinking water for:

  • Legionella
  • Escherichia coli
  • Coliform bacteria
  • Enterococci
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Clostridium prefringens
  • Colony count 22°C
  • Colony count 36°C

The analysis package is delivered to you with all the necessary materials. In just a few steps, you can take the sample from your tap. No previous knowledge is necessary. The enclosed instructions will help you with the process. The analysis is then carried out in an accredited and certified laboratory. After just 3-4 working days, you will receive the results by post.

This test includes:

  • Instructions for sampling
  • Instructions for querying findings
  • Sample accompanying document
  • Guarantee certificate
  • 6 sample tubes
  • Shipping bag

Test instructions:

1. Open the sample tube.

2. Adjust the faucet so that a pencil-thick stream of water flows.

3. To avoid any falsification of the result by possible fitting materials, first let about 1 litre run down the drain.

4. Fill the first enclosed sample tube with the red dot on the cap up to the thread with warm water.

5. Screw the cap tightly onto the sample tube so that no water can leak out.

6. Now take a barcode label from the sample information sheet and stick it on the sample tube.

7. Using cold water, repeat steps 4 through 6 with the remaining five tubes.

8. For shipping, place all sample tubes with the completed sample information form in the enclosed shipping bag. Send these back to our laboratory immediately.
