Water sample test fails

Postby Linebacker » Thu 27 Jul, 2017 06:50

I took a water sample to the city, I tested the water before taking it and the levels came back fine Chl was between 2-3 and PH was 7.6. So I collected a new sample from the same spot bottled it in a proper sample bottle and took it in, the result came back unsatisfactory they don't test right away they usually take 3 days before they test a sample is there anyway that the levels aren't holding during that 3 day waiting period??? Need help!! Thanks

Why do you have to send a water sample to the city for analysis? are you on a well and what was unsatisfactory
