We provide Microbiological sampling services to premises in Cornwall to analyse the numbers and types of microbiological contaminants in water such as bacteria, viruses and fungi.
How often should I sample?
Swimming and spa pools should be sampled monthly for microbiological quality. Such as:
- Aerobic colony count
- E Coli
- P aeruginosa
Hydrotherapy pools should be sampled weekly for microbiological quality.
Analysis of the samples should be in a UKAS accredited laboratory.
