Water Testing

Water is one on the most essential resources today but unfortunately it is also one of the biggest deposit of contaminants. Only 3% of the water available across the world is fresh water. In order to reduce pollution and ensure safety, proper testing and management of water is essential. Water is not only used for drinking purpose, most of our industrial process requires a large quantity of water. Proper Testing and chemical or physical treatment of water is one of the best management practices for reducing water pollution
Wimpey Laboratories, Water testing Lab in UAE offers a high quality and accurate range of water testing facilities across the globe. Our testing capabilities and accreditation are listed below.
