WATERcontrol specializes in water sample taking from house installations for chemical and bacteriological testing. Nationwide, we carry out standardised systematic water sampling and analysis for customers (landlords, house owners, plant operators, employers) who are - according to the drinking water directive - legally obliged to have their central drinking water and heating systems tested for legionella bacteria.
High quality is essential for us. Therefore, we take and process all water samples with own certified and experienced personnel. All samples are examined for legionella contamination in accredited laboratories we cooperate with on a long-term basis. Our quality management systems are perfectly adjusted to legionella tests in large scales meaning up to 60.000 samples and examinations per year.
We use a bar code based software solution that ensures that every single water sample is registered and can not be lost or confused with other samples taken in the same set.
For storage and transport of the samples to our partner lab we developed a two-stage cooling system. After sample taking the hot water is rapidly cooled down in a steel box filled with destilled cold water to ambient temperature. The apparatus provides room for 8 standard 125 ml sample containers. After the set of samples is completed the samples are further cooled to temperatures between 2 to 8 ° C as demanded by the ISO-standard 19458:2006 water sampling for microbiological analysis.
