Water Testing and Water Quality Analysis in Melbourne

Given that the human body comprises roughly 70% water, the importance of clean water for its optimal functioning cannot be overstated. Although drinking water, including tap water, is generally deemed safe, it might not always be entirely fit for its intended purpose. It can potentially harbor chemical or biological contaminants that tend to accumulate within our bodies, leading to health concerns. Hence, water testing becomes crucial.

Local councils go through a process of purifying raw water sourced from wells, lakes, rivers, and other reservoirs before it reaches consumers.

However, despite the considerable efforts, achieving 100% pure water supply at all times becomes an impractical endeavor for the government. Yet, the aim is to provide water that’s as safe as possible. Additionally, there exists a possibility of water contamination during the transmission of water from the purification source.
