Use 1.5l bottle previuosly filled with spring water purchased from shop. Boil tap water and let it cool down. Rinse out the plastic botlle with this water so that bottle is sterilised. . Switch on borehole pump and let water run for about 30 seconds- then fill up your 1.5 litre bottle with the borehole water. Place in fridge. Label bottle with your name and address. When you are ready to take water to be tested take bottle and place in cool bag. It should take about 15minutes by car from Bergvliet to Claremont. Keep water cool.
