Construction Water Testing

Ensuring the quality of your construction and infrastructure

Construction Water Testing

Nationally and internationally there has been an increased focus on construction and infrastructure projects, governments are looking to raise the standard of living of the people by constructing roads, highways, bridges, buildings, etc. As the number of construction projects goes up there is an imperative need for testing of the water used during construction. Water is utilized during the mixing process of concrete, mortar and during the curing of the concrete thus the construction water must meet the requirements of the national and international standards as it directly impacts the quality of the construction. Impurities such as salts, industrial waste, various oils can reduce the strength and longevity of the concrete, the presence of zinc chlorides can drastically change the setting time of the concrete and algae can create weakness in the bonds on concrete. Thus in-depth and comprehensive testing of construction water is required. As there is a huge influx of different raw materials at construction sites, construction water as well arrives from various different sources thus should be tested at periodic intervals to ensure the quality of construction is maintained.
