Water chemistry can be highly complicated. By the time water reaches your operation, it has developed a wide variety of characteristics. Organics, chemicals, sediment, metals and minerals all interact to create a recipe that can be challenging for restaurants.
Water that is high in calcium and magnesium can lead to hard scale in equipment, while water that is high in chlorides or chlorine can be corrosive to plumbing and stainless steel. And iron, when utilized by certain bacteria, can cause slime build up and clogging.
The Everpure water test kit can give you some simple measurements for key water attributes. However, to fully understand your water’s chemistry, an independent lab analysis is recommended. Precise and accurate testing requires the use of sophisticated equipment in lab conditions.
Our Certified Lab Analysis will provide precise and detailed information on the following:
- Turbidity (cloudiness)
- Ortho Phosphates
- Cations (Metals)
Also Available (if requested):
- THM + VOC + Bacteria *
* Note for standard plus THM+VOC+Bacteria, your best value is our $100 water analysis DEV9800-15.
Our Independent Lab Analysis is $75.00. The lab will send you a water bottle that you fill per the instructions included and mail back to the lab. Once your sample is received, your results will arrive in approximately two weeks. To order our Lab Analysis (DEV7013-73), contact your local Everpure distributor or if you have questions about our water testing, call our Technical Service Team at 800-942-1153, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
