Check Metales

Check Metals


Many installations in buildings and homes may contain metals in pipes, tanks or other equipment or materials in contact with drinking water, as lead, copper, chromium, nickel or iron, so it is important to know his possible presence.

What parameters are included in the analysis?


Copper info

Metal used in building construction materials.

The primary sources of copper in drinking water are corroding pipes and hot water heaters which may lead to problems such as greenish-bluish stains around bathroom appliances and fixtures and, in some occasions, bitter taste.
The maximum level of copper in drinking water is 2 mg/l.


Chromium info

Related to metal fittings such as pipes.

Chromium is a metal partly related to metal piping materials and fittings (e.g. tanks).


Iron info

Related to metal fittings such as pipes.

Iron is one of the Earth’s most plentiful resources. Its presence in water is mainly due to the use of metal pipes and fittings such as taps, storage tanks, etc.


Nickel info

Related to metal fittings and pipes.

The primary source of nickel in drinking water is leaching from metals in contact with water such as pipes and fittings.


Lead info

Lead is largely related to old plumbing installation systems.

Lead was commonly used in the 70’s in household plumbing materials and water service lines. Currently, its use is forbidden; however, there are many homes built before the 80’s which have lead pipes.
Lead is a extremely poisonous metal. Lead in high concentrations is believed to have adverse effects on the central nervous system, kidneys and cardiovascular system, etc.
The maximum acceptable level of lead in drinking water is 0.025 mg/L (25 µg/l). From 2014 onwards, its limit will be 0,010 mg/l (10 µg/l).
