There's Now A Better Way To Test For Bacteria In Your Drinking
Water Included in the
Water Test Kit!
...and it's greener!
If you want to have your drinking water analyzed for the presence of bacteria, along with other potential contaminants,all mail-order labs require you to do the following:
Why are all of these steps necessary?
The recommended holding time for testing water for the presence of bacteria is very short, generally no more than 48 hours. That means you need to ship the water sample to the lab the same day you draw it. Also, the temperature of the water sample must be kept cool during transit.
The other potential contaminants have a much longer holding time and aren't affected by temperature.
We used to do it this way until we stepped back and asked ourselves if we really need to put our customers through these steps...the answer is, No!
Why? Because we discovered very reliable and simple wayfor our customers to analyze their water for the presence of bacteria themselves...
..without having to adhere to acceptable temperature and holding times normally involved in shipping samples back to the lab by mail.
"This test zeros in on the pathogens that indicate the presence of 'bad' bacteria. The vast majority of bacteria are harmless, or beneficial to humans. The is the only test we have found that 'looks for' the 'bad' bacteria and therefore the ones that you need to treat for to remove."
Here is the list of bacteria this test screen for:
Here are the simple steps to testing your drinking water for bacteria using ournew method:
That's it! No gel packs to freeze and pack. No need to rush your water samples back to the lab the same day you collect the sample. No use of landfill unfriendly Styrofoam shippers and gel packs. No need to pay for overnight shipping.
The other vials provided with the kit can now be shipped back to the lab using standard non-expedited shipping methods, such as first-class postage through the US Post Office.
Try Our New Method. It is easier, much more cost effective and your results are obtained far quicker than conventional methods...All this without sacrificing quality!!
Note: If it is found that there is a presence of bacteria, you can correct the problem the same way you would if we had tested the water at the lab, by chlorinating the system.
