An Easy At-Home 10-Minute Well Water Testing Kit
Simple enough for anyone to use and read
If you’re wondering about the quality of your well water, you probably know you can’t tell just by looking at or smelling it. You need a way to analyse it thoroughly.
This testing kit allows you to accurately test the 8 crucial parameters of your well water -- without any experience, expert help, or mailing required.
You can then determine exactly how safe your water is to drink, why it might smell or taste unusual, and what kind of problems it could be causing to your plumbing or clothes.
All our products are stored in Amazon Fulfilment centres to be able to deliver them to you quickly and reliably. Please allow us 1 day to process your order and 5-7 days to receive it. Some orders will arrive even as fast as 3 days but the logistics and shipping speed is not something we can control.
The EPA recommends testings at least once a year
More than 45 million people in the US get their drinking water from private wells
Yet only 1 out of every 7 well owners test their water
Wells can easily become contaminated
Putting you and your family at risk of illness, plumbing problems (such as pipe corrosion), and other issues.
40-58% of wells exceed at least one health-based standard
This is putting at health effects risk 18-27 million people every year?

What are the detection limits for each test included in the kit?
Hydrogen sulfide: 0-2 ppm pH: 2.0-12.0 Total Alkalinity: 0-500 ppm Total Hardness: 0-1000 ppm Manganese: <0.02 to="">1.6 ppm Nitrate: 0-50 ppm Nitrite 0-3.0 ppm
How long does it take to complete all the tests?
After thoroughly reading the instructions, the tests will take a total of 45 minutes to an hour to complete. The bacteria test requires 48 hours to develop the results.
What is the shelf life of this kit?
The kit contains multiple test strips, each with different expirations printed on the strip. The test kit should be used in one year.
How long are the results good for?
Wells should be tested at least once a year. No one can predict when the water quality will change due to rain, snowmelt, construction and other disturbances to the water supply.
Can I use this kit more than once?
No. The kit can only be used one. There is one bacteria test and two tests each for nitrate, nitrate, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, pH, total alkalinity and total hardness.
Is there a separate test for each element?
Some tests are for a single parameter. Some strips test multiple parameters on a single strip.
How many test strips are in the kit?
Two nitrite-nitrate strips, one bacteria test, two hydrogen sulfide tests, two 3-way strips (pH, alkalinity and water hardness) and two manganese tests.
How often should I test my well water?
Wells should be tested a minimum of once a year.
What is the range of the Manganese test?
The test covers a range of <0.02 ppm="" to=""> 1.6 ppm. The increments are ,0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 1.0 and >1.6 ppm.
What is the range of the Hydrogen Sulfide test?
The test covers a range of 0, 0.3, 0.5 1 and 2 ppm.
Will the bacteria test tell me if I have E.coli?
The test reveals the presence of Coliform bacteria (including E.coli). It is not specific for E. coli coliform bacteria.
Does it check for coliform & E-coli?
Yes. E. coli is one of the coliform bacteria.
If you leave the water in the vial for the bacteria test for 4 or 5 days will it change from purple to yellow even if it was purple after the 48 hours?
The ideal incubation time is 48 hours at normal room temperatures. If you keep the vial around for a week or longer you may start to see the color change. But the test is invalid.
What are signs of Hydrogen Sulfide in water?
We are very sensitive to hydrogen sulfide. You notice the taste and odor quite easily. Rotten egg odor is the common description. In serious cases, your plumbing will corrode and leak.
In what country is this product manufactured?
The kit is manufactured in the USA.
Should I test the well water right out of the kitchen sink or when it first comes out of the holding tank?
Well water can be tested immediately from the faucet or after letting the water run a minute or so. Flushing the system before testing is especially recommended when testing for lead (Health-Metric Heavy Metals Test Kit).
Is this a self-contained kit? Or do you have to mail in something to get the results?
The kit contains everything needed to perform the tests at home.
Can this test spring water?
Yes. The test can be used with any drinking water source.
What are some of the common test kit errors to avoid?
The most important thing to do is to read the instructions carefully and follow the test procedures. Most errors are caused by not following the test directions.
Our bacteria result is positive. Where do I go from here?
Bacteria contamination is not unusual. A water treatment professional can asses your well and recommend the most effective method to correct the problem.
What are the EPA limits for Nitrate in water?
The EPA maximum nitrate level is 10.0 ppm.
Does the Drinking Water Test Kit measure pH?
Is the water hardness test measured in ppm?
The water hardness test provides results as ppm (mg/l) and grains per gallon.
