At present, the city public drinking water is mainly supplied by the municipal administration, as well as a small part of the owned well water. The qualification rate of the testing project of the owned well water is increasing year by year. This is mainly because that people have strengthened the technical guidance of the owned well water, at the same time strengthened the management of the units and individuals who are using the owned well water, thus the total coliform bacteria and manganese in the well water are greatly reduced, and the qualification rate is increasing. However, generally speaking, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) rules that protect public drinking water systems do not apply to individual water systems, including privately owned wells. It is up to the individual water system owner to make sure the well water is safe to drink. Water testing and treatment are expensive and inconvenient, but are necessary to ensure residents have access to a safe and reliable source of water. Alfa Chemistry is committed to providing residents with safe and reliable supply of high-quality drinking water. Your water is tested using sophisticated equipment and advanced procedures. We offer water testing reports including manganese, total coliform, pH, iron, total bacteria, total hardness, chloride, visible objects, turbidity, chroma and other items.
Generally, the water quality is tested following national standards. The total hardness, chloride, dissolved total solids, nitrate, chemical oxygen consumption, volatile phenol, anionic synthetic detergent, chromium (VI), are measured by classical chemical methods. Fluoride is tested by fluorine ion selective electrode. Trace elements are measured by atomic absorption spectrophotometer and ICP-MS.
We can provide well water testing in the topics including:
We offer sophisticated instruments such as gas (GC) and liquid (LC) chromatographies with different detectors such as flame ionization detector (FID), electron capture detector (ECD), mass spectrometry (MS), and ultraviolet detector (UV). They are used to analyze water for specialized chemicals such as pesticides, perfluorinated organic compounds (PFCs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). These chemicals usually present at low concentrations in water and they are usually toxic. Special pretreatment is usually needed for concentrating these chemicals in an organic solvent or on a solid phase that can be used to thermally release the chemicals in the injection port of the analytic instrument. In case the analysis is performed to identify unknown organic compounds in water, more specialized techniques are needed such as GC MS/MS and LC MS/MS. There are also advanced techniques that allow simultaneous analysis of several metals (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, ICP-MS, and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry, ICP-OES) or ions (ion chromatography, IC) at rather low concentrations.
Alfa Chemistry is professional in water quality analysis and we can provide accurate and reliable tests results within the time constraint. We have conducted well water analysis, drinking water quality analysis, watersheds and rivers analysis and wastewater, stormwater, runoff analysis. Please feel free to contact us if you have any concern or would like us to perform any water quality testing. Check our instruments list to see our capabilities.
