The most important parameters are analyzed by this test. THM's are compounds formed as a by-product of the chlorination/disinfection phase of the treatment process and are all highly dangerous to human health. FLUORIDE is added to water during the treatment process to protect against dental decay. However, when ingested in high doses, its use can cause bone disease and cancer. LEAD in water for human consumption is quite common and may occur by atmospheric deposition or soil leaching, corrosion of pipes and lead in roof tiles. When ingested by humans, its effects are quite harmful. Lead affects every one of the body's organ systems, especially the nervous system. It also affects the bones and teeth, the kidneys, and the cardiovascular, immune, and reproductive systems. ALUMINIUM may be present in the water by natural routes or inserted during the process of water treatment in the coagulation/flocculation phase. In addition to compromising the water quality, it is likely that when ingested in high dosage, it may pose risk of Alzheimer’s/dementia. NITRATES are usually found in water due to the excessive use of fertilisers containing Nitrogen. Nitrates in water can lead to blue baby syndrome in newborns and stomach cancer. IRON, MANGANESE and BROMATE are also analysed due to the potential threat of compromising the water quality.
