AquaChem – Water Quality Analysis Software

On Jun 19, 2024 we released AquaChem 13.0, the latest version of our popular software application specifically designed for anyone working on hydrogeologic, geochemical, or environmental projects requiring the management, analysis, and reporting of water quality data. 

AquaChem’s analysis tools cover a wide range of functions and calculations used for analyzing, interpreting and comparing water quality data, including unit transformations, charge balances, statistics, and geochemical modeling using PHREEQC. These powerful analytical capabilities are complemented by an extensive selection of commonly used geochemical plots to represent the chemical characteristics of water quality data and a console for R-scripts that offers powerful data science tools.

AquaChem 64-Bit Edition

AquaChem is available as a 64-bit application, providing improved performance, better handling of larger projects, and easier configuration on most systems.

Plot Collections

The plot collection module supports labels for data points.

Data Sources

AquaChem now allows you to select a data source type:

  • Microsoft Access: useful for smaller portable projects; can be stored on network drives
  • Local DB (NEW): useful for larger projects and improved performance; can only be stored on the local hard drive
  • Convert: you can easily convert between database sources as your project needs change


  • The PHREEQC Module supports saving PHREEC (Basic) simulation configurations
  • The modeled parameter picker in the Parameter Editor module supports filtering and sorting
