Laboratory Services

This web page details Acorn Water’s laboratory services for those working in the utility wastewater industry. If you have a domestic or corporate water testing query, please visit our sister website at, where you can view and order a range of suitable water testing kits. 


Our laboratory testing services are suitable for a wide range of water and environmental water samples. We participate in a national laboratory proficiency scheme known as Intercal and provide regular monitoring to help customers maintain compliance with IPC effluent license requirements. Additionally, we can supply all bottles and carry out any sampling required, including testing to ISO 17025 standards.


Our testing methods are carried out using approved analytical test methods, and our results are published with reference to European and/or national regulatory limits.
