    water analysis

    HI:

    I'm looking for someone to run me 4 wateranalysis.
    In the best I had a supplier who did that without charging me.
    I asked some cleaning suppliers, but they are not set up to
    do water analysis?!?!
    Any help?

    Make friends with the beer drinkers that run the lab at your local water company. They test the water daily and sometimes more. It took me a while to get the right phone number to the Louisville Water Co. lab. I can call and they read me the stats of whatever I ask for, no charge.

    Think about it for a minute: You are a large customer of your local water company, why should you pay for analysis for the product they are selling to you. Unless of course you want independant conformation of the data they supply.

    Good luck and
    Cheers & I'm out!

    If you have a homebrewers club, check with them. I was able to get full analysis of all my water free of charge. It turns out one of the professors at the university who is a hydrogeologist, home brewer and fan of my beer had done a full analysis of all the water within the area, along with that he also providing treatment solutions.
