The potable water quality affects human health; therefore, special attention is given to the development and improvement of methods for detecting its composition. Today different measurement procedures are used for this purpose, but the search for the most informative, rapid and cost-effective one keeps on. This paper studies possibilities and prospects for application of LIBS method (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) in its implementation with a serial LEA-S500 laser analyzer for quantitative measurement of various chemical elements in potable water. Comparison was made with the techniques known as the most efficient: atomic spectrometry and mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma.
