Microbiological Sampling Services in Cornwall

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
  • Coliforms
  • E Coli
  • P aeruginosa

Hydrotherapy pools should be sampled weekly for microbiological quality.

Analysis of the samples should be in a UKAS accredited laboratory.
