The water analysis includes the waste water analysis generally domestic
sewage and industrial effluents. The water analysi is necessary inorder to
decide whether the water sample has pollution potential and also to know if the
water sample is safer enough to use for the irrigation of plants.
Is it necessary?
Water analysis is ultimately necessary for knowing that the water
we use is in the pure form. Majority of the microbes can survive in the water
which causes various water borne diseases. Through water analysis, the
sample can be tested to know if it is suitable for use and healthy. It also
characterizes the hard and soft water. Filtration of water leads to loss of
minerals. Hence the water analysis should be done inorder to determine the
Selection of sample:
Water analysis is required for Pond water, Waste water, Domestic
water, Muncipal Water and well water. Generally ground water is pure. The
sample should be collected in the bottle and given to the lab within 48 hours
from collection. Care should be taken from contacting the bottle or the cap.
The parameters necessary for the water analysis are:
pH, Electrical conductivity, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Biological
Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Organic Carbon (TOC), Feacal Coliform,
Turbidity, Salinity, Total Hardness, Chlorine and Dissolved Oxygen,
