Many algae species are toxic and pose a significant risk to humans, domestic pets, live stock and native animals.
In situations where humans are in contact with toxic algae contaminated water, such as when irrigating crops or turf, using water for dust suppression, the cooling of equipment or cooling etc, this exposure can create an OH&S risk to staff. Where toxic algae contaminated water is accessible to the public, this exposure can create a public safety risk.
Aquatic Site Maintenance can provide instant on site algae testing services, providing clear indications as to the potential risk factors of toxic blue green algae. This instant onsite algae testing service provides an indication within 20 seconds as to the presence of toxic blue green algae, when algae results are needed fast.
This unique service is exclusive to Aquatic Site Maintenance and no other provider can deliver instant onsite algae testing services.
While these tests are not a substitute for standard laboratory tests, it offers instant data with each test taking only 20 seconds to obtain an accurate reading.
Greater accuracy can be obtained from taking several tests in various locations and various depths within the water body. This reduces single sample location and time of day sample variations that can inhibit instant data results for decision making.
On call testing available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
