7. Do you provide Chemical or Water Testing?
There are certain tests that can be conducted in the field or at the customer site. In addition, we have a small lab in Cairo that is mainly used as a QA/QC lab. However, for the more extensive testing we utilize third party laboratory services. Our third party network is extensive due to the testing requirements at our other divisions. This is a little different from some of the Large Traditional Water Treatment Companies.
