Water Testing

Why not bring a sample of your water down to Barton Lake for testing? For peace of mind, a water test will show up any problems that may have gone unnoticed. Early diagnosis can prevent more serious problems later on and suitable chemicals can be suggested early to reverse the water inaccuracy. With our own laboratory on site, a ‘wait while test’ service is provided.
