Quality water is safe water, but how can we tell if water is of good quality and is safe for consumption? Assessing the quality of water goes beyond mere visual inspection. It requires a comprehensive evaluation of various physical, chemical, and biological characteristics, depending on its intended use.

In the Philippines, adhering to the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water (PNSDW) is of paramount importance in attaining quality water. Since its establishment in 1963, the PNSDW has served as a guiding framework for all drinking water service providers such as the government, private developers and operators, water refilling stations, ice manufacturers, health and sanitation authorities, food establishments, and water testing laboratories in providing safe and quality water to protect the health of the consumers.

To further promote water and wastewater quality, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) issued Administrative Order No. 2016-08, a comprehensive guideline for different sectors to adhere to the General Effluent Standards. These standards play a vital role in preserving the environment, safeguarding public health, and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.

At Glenwood Technologies, we recognize the significance of water quality monitoring in across various industries. Our extensive range of cutting-edge photometers, enzyme substrate test, electronic meters, and test strips offer reliable solutions for accurately monitoring water quality. These reliable tools empower food producers and related industries to maintain strict quality control measures and uphold the highest standards of water safety.

Accurate and reliable testing for E. coli and coliforms in water

AOAC-certified chromogenic substrate medium designed for the reliable detection and quantification of E. coli and coliforms in 100ml water samples. Unlike other brands, AquaCHROM™ ECC does not need a UV lamp for interpretation of results and makes use of a reusable MPN tray and dispenser.

  • Cost-effective and easy to use
  • Fast Results: 18-24 hours
  • Applicable for qualitative and quantitative (MPN) analysis
  • Environment-friendly: Utilizes an autoclavable and reusable 48-well sample plate for MPN analysis
  • Ideal for field testing: Incubation can be conducted at room temperature and does not require a UV lamp for result interpretation
  • Reliable: AOAC-approved with License number 072202
  • Method is equivalent to US EPA 1604 and FDA/BAM Chapter 4
  • No sample pre-warming required
  • Long shelf-life: 24 months
  • Validated for the analysis of various water samples including bottled water, tap water, well water, and lake water
  • Result interpretation:
    • E. coli – green to blue green
    • Coliforms – yellow
    • Negative – colorless

SenSafe® and WaterWorks Test Strips

Quick on-site water quality test system

SenSafe® and WaterWorks Test Strips are on-site water quality systems for the semi-quantitative detection of different parameters in water. SenSafe® test strips have colorimetric indicators that are impregnated in the membrane and positioned over an aperture. The aperture allows free flow across the membrane, which improves colorimetric reaction with the indicator up to 100-fold, when compared to other conventional strips. WaterWorks test strips are regular test strips with multi-parameter options for easier and faster testing. Parameters for the test strips include: Free Chlorine (EPA-approved), pH and Alkalinity, Total Hardness, 4-in-1 City Water Check, and other chemical parameters

  • Rapid and cost-effective
  • With advanced aperture technology (only for SenSafe®)
  • Allows multi-parameter testing (only for WaterWorks)

Comparator and FlexiTester

Rapid colorimetric test systems for water quality analysis

Comparator features a distinctive color disc system, where measurement results are compared to a rotating color disc scale. On the other hand, FlexiTester utilizes a continuous color scale on a parameter stick. These user-friendly tools offer quick and accurate results, allowing you to monitor water quality for more than 40 different parameters with ease.

  • Rapid and cost-effective
  • No measurement results "between" individual color scales, providing consistent and reliable readings
  • Test parameters include Alkalinity, Chlorine, Nitrate, pH, Total Hardness, and others

Please contact us for the complete list of parameters.


Electronic Meter

Advanced tools for precise water parameter analysis

Electronic Meters offer a professional and convenient solution for measuring various essential water parameters. With these meters, you can accurately assess conductivity, salinity, total dissolved solids, pH, temperature, and ORP (Redox Potential) without the need for additional reagents such as tablets or drops.

  • Simple and efficient
  • No additional reagents (tablets, drops, etc.) required for testing
  • Some models feature automatic temperature compensation for precise readings
