Testing Your Bore Water

Minerals and salts occur naturally in groundwater.  As groundwater can stain some surfaces, testing may be required to determine what you can use your bore water for e.g. Swimming pools, toilets, etc.  A groundwater test may also be useful for information when growing certain plants/crops etc.


Water testing is available from ALS Environmental, Water Resources Group.  A 600ml drinking water bottle filled with bore water can be sent for a Complete Package analysis at a cost of $198.00 inc GST (price current as of August 2017).  Payment and contact details must be included with sample:  please download the form below to accompany your sample. Instructions on how to send your sample are also included on this form.  Once your sample has been received by ALS Water, a report will then be mailed or emailed in approximately 10 working days.
