Potable Water vs Wastewater
Ground water or other inflows and swimming pools often need to be considered in addition to waste water and drinking water sources when trying to identify a water source. Conductivity, fluoride, ammonia spot test (Nessler's reagent), chloride and odour can rapidly provide data to make an assessment concerning the source. Naturally, the person evaluating this data needs to be familiar with stength of the local drinking water to assess this type of data.
