Water quality changes in just a few hours  

When the pressure and temperature change after taking a sample, many critical parameters change rapidly. 

  • Cations and anions start forming insoluble scales ("crashing out")
  • Dissolved gases (such as CO2 and H2S) start off-gassing
  • Undissolved gases from the air are absorbed by the sample
  • All of these are factors cause pH to fluctuate unpredictably
  • Acid preserving the sample is often not enough

The current practice for testing water is to test for pH and alkalinity and ship preserved and unpreserved samples to a laboratory.
By the time the sample arrives at the laboratory, it is too late. Additionally, most companies are paying for two tests; one in the field, one in the lab.
