WATER LEAD TEST KIT
Our Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test kit is a must if you are concerned about your water quality and wellness. Lead from pipes can easily leach into your household water which is being used for drinking, washing and cooking. This common toxic contaminant, even at low levels, has been linked to learning disabilities, kidney damage and muscle disorders. The simple, one-step test kit accurately detects dissolved lead at the EPA Action Level of 15 parts per billion. The Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test is an affordable and quick way to see if your water has harmful levels of lead.
Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test Kits are ideal for someone who…
- Is concerned about the water quality and needs to detect if there are high levels of lead in the water system.
- Has older pipes and needs to see if lead is leaching into the household water system.
- Detects dissolved lead at the EPA Action Level of 15 parts per billion
- Test results within 10 minutes – no mixing or measuring required
- Kit includes: 1 Lead test strip, 1 sample vial, 1 dropper pipette and 1 desiccant packet (to be discarded)
- Simple, easy instructions and interpretation of results
- Non-toxic test materials
- EPA-based, laboratory certified test kit
1. Take all contents out of the foil packet. Using dropper pipette, place water sample in the test vial. To pick up sample, tightly squeeze the bulb at the end of the pipette and place the open end into water sample. Release the bulb to pick up sample and next squeeze the bulb to add the sample to the vial. Use only one pipette-full of water. Swirl vial gently for several seconds. Place vial on a flat surface
2. Place the Watersafe test strip into test vial, with arrows pointing down
3. Wait 10 minutes. Do not disturb strip or vial during this time. Blue lines will appear on the strip
4. Take the strip out of the vial and read results:
- Negative: the LEFT line (next to number 1) is darker than the RIGHT line (next to number 2). If you only see the LEFT line, the test is negative.
- Positive: the RIGHT line (next to number 2) is darker than the LEFT line (next to number 1), or lines are equally dark.
Note: if no lines appear, or both lines are very light, the test did not run properly and the result is not valid. If a test strip shows a positive result, your water sample may contain lead at a toxic level.
