Sampling Instructions

Collecting coliform samples 

Our laboratory will provide sterile plastic bottles, sample bottles will be examined when received. If any reason the sterility of the bottle is in question (loose caps, caps off etc) the bottle will not be used and you will be contacted to collect a resample.

 

Sampling

-Select a tap that is supplying water from a service pipe directly connected with the main, and is not e.g. served from a cistern or storage tank.

-Using a clean cloth, wipe the outlet to remove any dirt and attachments that may cause splashing. If tap cleanliness is questionable, sterilize the tap by applying a flame for one minute.

-Turn the tap at maximum flow and let water flow for 2 –3 minutes.

-Turn the tap and allow water to flow at medium flow for 2 – 3 minutes.

-Take out a bottle and carefully unscrew the cap or pull out the stopper.

-While holding the cap downwards to prevent entry of dust, immediately hold the bottle under the water jet and fill. A small air space should be left to make shaking before analysis easier. Screw the cap. Place the bottle in a clean plastic bag.

Return the container to our laboratory the same day the sample is collected.
