Test Sure’s 9 in 1 drinking water test kit is the most comprehensive way for you to protect yourself from harmful toxins that can be found in drinking water. Our test measures a wide range of harmful chemicals that are found in drinking water.
Our water test kit contains laboratory grade test strips allowing you to test any water source for 9 specific harmful contaminants. Each parameter has different standards that are defined by the EPA. The following charts are included in our 9 in 1 water test kit instructions, and they give details on the standards for drinking water set by the EPA for each parameter tested, plus some information on the dangers of each contaminant.
Lead Water Test Kit
Lead is a common toxin found in drinking water and can have drastic effects on your health, especially for children. Lead builds up over time in our bodies, and can eventually lead to brain and nerve damage from over exposure. It’s important to make sure lead levels are low in your drinking water.
Copper Water Test Kit
Copper levels are naturally regulated in the body, but high levels of copper in drinking water can lead to health issues such as nausea, diarrhea, and cramping. It’s also been linked to kidney disease and liver failure.
pH Water Test Kit
This is the measurement of acidity in your water. Ideally your drinking water should be about a 7.2, or slightly alkaline.
Iron Water Test Kit
Iron is an important of our body and necessary for good health. However, too much iron can lead to health problems.
Free Chlorine Water Test Kit
The EPA requires that our drinking water have at least 4 ppm to prevent water contamination. However, high chlorine levels are not good to ingest and can harm our health.
Total Hardness Water Test Kit
Soft or acidic water can contain many of the harmful toxins that this kit tests for. Adversely, slightly hard water can add Calcium and Magnesium to your diet, which is essential for good health, so the EPA recommends having a minimum amount of hardness in your drinking water.
Nitrite Water Test Kit
Drinking water supplies can become contaminated with nitrite in various ways, including fertilizers and human waste. Nitrite contamination can lead to many adverse health conditions, especially in small children.
