Corrosive water is a term used to describe “aggressive” water that can dissolve materials with which it comes in contact. While aggressive water is usually not dangerous to consume by itself, it can cause serious drinking water quality problems by dissolving metals from plumbing systems. Many homes have pipes, solders and/or plumbing fixtures made from copper, lead or other metals. Corrosive water can sometimes dissolve enough of these metals to create both aesthetic and health-related problems in drinking water. In certain cases, corrosion can be severe enough to cause leaks in the plumbing system.
- People affected by the following: leaky radiators; leaky pipes; Blue-Green stains on grouting, sinks, on bath, under hot taps, when adding soap to water, on copper cylinder, pipes being corroded.

- Restaurant Water Quality Checks
- Analysis of water causing damage to buildings

This test has the advantage of identifying the level of corrosivity of the water in order to fix or avoid future problems, since the high corrosivity of the water can cause corrosion and incrustations in the distribution system, changing the quality of the water.
