Water

Water is the basic element for the preservation of life in our planet. Surface and underground water (lakes, rivers) is used for human consumption. Water should always be harmless for humans. When water is measured and analyzed by the lab instruments should be impeccable and absolutely clean, exempted from pathogenic micro-organisms and any substances in numbers and concentrations that constitute potential danger for the human health.

Apart however from the human consumption big interest presents also the usage of water for irrigation. Its quality characteristics have to range between certain acceptable limits, which constitute the models of quality and are established legislatively. These models of quality, in Greece, are determined by the Common Ministerial Decision Y2/2600/2001 that constitutes conformity of Greek Legislation to Directive 98/83 EU. At Enolab we realize analyses of water supply, irrigation, river, lake, sea, and factory wastes. Depending on the origin of the sample we select the suitable set of analyses that might give us the best answer to whether  water is polluted or if it is suitable to use and consumption from humans. All the above presuppose the knowledge of correct sampling.

The laboratory conforms with the international standards of ISO9001:2008  for the procedure of water analysis validated by TUV Austria.
