Overview

This do-it-yourself water testing kit allows you to determine if your water contains harmful or undesirable levels of bacteria, lead, pesticides, chlorine, nitrates, nitrites, pH and hardness. With in-depth, easy to follow instructions, these kits are great to include the whole family, or for a school project!

New improvements to this kit include better packaging,increased number of tests per kit, and an increased sensitivity for lead testing down to 3.8 parts per billion! This Drinking Water Test Kit is now suitable for both well and municipal water sources.

Kit Includes:

  • Two pesticide test strips (these will detect atrazine & simazine)
  • Two bacteria test vials (these will detect coliform & non-coliform bacteria)
  • Two nitrate/nitrite test strip
  • Two 3-way test trips for pH, water hardness and chlorine
  • Two next-generation lead test strips
  • Complete, easy-to-follow instructions

Each of the 4 tests within the kit take different amounts of time to complete. For instance, bacterial levels in the water are assessed 48 hours after initial testing, lead after 10 minutes, nitrate/nitrite after 1 minute and pH/hardness/chlorine after 15 seconds.

Lead Test

The Complete Drinking Water Test Kit is the most sensitive and accurate test strip for lead that is currently available to the general public, being able to detect even a tiny amount of lead, down to 3.8 parts per billion (ppb), well below the EPA Action Level of 15 ppb. This test has been validated in an EPA-certified laboratory.

Pesticide Test

The Complete Drinking Water Test Kit detects two common and dangerous pesticides, atrazine and simazine. In rural and agricultural areas, pesticides can make their way into the ground water that feeds drinking water plumbing networks. Consuming even small amounts of these pesticides can cause an array of different health concerns.

Bacteria Test

The Complete Drinking Water Test Kit includes a sensitive bacteria test for a wide range of coliform and non-coliform bacteria. This includes E.coli, Shigella, Samonella, Klebsiella, and many more.  Bacteria can build up on faucets over time or even grow in well water if it is not monitored closely.  This can lead to or cause diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, nausea, headaches, fever, fatigue, and more serious health concerns.

Nitrates and Nitrites Tests

Even small concentrations of nitrates and nitrites in drinking water can be hazardous to health - especially for infants and pregnant women. These contaminants are colorless, odorless, and tasteless, which is why it is crucial to screen for these chemicals regularly. 

pH Test

A high pH (highly alkaline) may indicate the presence of undesirable minerals. These minerals can cause annoying problems such as limescale and may require extensive water softening. Alternatively, water with a low pH (highly acidic) can corrode metal pipes and cause dangerous metals such as lead, copper, and iron to flake off into the water.  The pH of a domestic water supply should be checked frequently.

Hardness Test

Hardness in drinking water can indicate dissolved compounds of calcium, magnesium, and other metallic elements. Similar to high pH, elevated hardness can cause unsightly build up on faucets and in showers and can otherwise make water undesirable to drink.

Chlorine Test

Chlorine is typically used to disinfect water, but elevated levels can be extremely toxic. Chlorine can interact with the other minerals in the water and produce chemicals called trihalomethanes (THMs). These chemicals have been known to cause serious health concerns. This is why it is important to ensure your drinking water does not have elevated levels of chlorine.

  • Odd taste, coloration, or smell can indicate the presence of contaminants
  • Homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead plumbing and fixtures that can leach into tap water
  • Private well water is not monitored by testing at a treatment facility, the EPA recommends testing twice a year
  • Stains in sinks and around fixtures can indicate the presence of iron, copper and other minerals
  • Monitor news reports and TBD websites to learn of contamination outbreaks in your area
  • Water quality is constantly changing and regular retesting is highly recommended
