Household Drinking Water

If you need to investigate the quality and safety of water from your household or property, you need one of ChemCentre’s water suites.

Our world class facilities and NATA accreditation means we provide high quality results to ensure your water adheres to the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

ChemCentre’s water suites are a cost-efficient selection of tests that determine the general chemistry of your water and can confirm the safety for consumption. This service is suitable for most:

  • household drinking waters,
  •  bore waters,
  •  other potable water sources, such as dams.  


If required, our scientists can also provide comments in the report on suitability for drinking, domestic use, irrigation and stock drinking water.

We have four water suites which can assist you, depending on the source of water and your requirements.

The ChemCentre Domestic Water Suite is ideal for water supplied from the mains. This is the most economical water suite, as mains water is also monitored by the Water Corporation so you may not require additional testing. The Domestic Water Suite tests for:

If you require, microbiological analysis (E.coli, coliforms) of your tap water, our Domestic Water Suite with Microbiological Testing is for you.

If you capture your own rainwater or use your own bore and dam water, you will require a more comprehensive range of tests. ChemCentre’s Rainwater Suite and Bore/Dam Water Suite  includes a comprehensive range of drinking water tests, including microbiological testing, and follows the WA Government, Department of Health Standard Drinking Water Tests.
