Laboratory Analysis
The first challenge for many businesses is to understand their obligations when it comes to managing water quality and the health of their customers especially within the hospitality sector or organisations with private water supplies or swimming pools.

We work hard to ensure that tap water quality in the South West leads the industry and we take our responsibilities very seriously. With our expertise and a diverse range of analytical techniques at our disposal, South West Water can provide independent fast accurate analysis and support in a cost efficient way.

Our in-house team of technicians is highly qualified and recognised within the industry for their skills and experience in this area.

Our laboratory analysis and environmental assessment services cover a wide range of public, private and regulated sectors. Our UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited laboratory based in Exeter has been established for over 35 years, producing accurate and reliable results using the latest analytical equipment and best practice techniques.

We have collection points throughout Devon and Cornwall to enable swift delivery of samples to our laboratory from across the region. If you are outside the region, please contact us via our online form to discuss transport arrangements.
