What is in the water that comes out of your tap? Even if you don’t drink tap water, chances are you cook, bathe and brush your teeth with it, and could be allowing contaminants into your system and that of your children. Until now accurate testing for contaminants was only available through expensive, analytical laboratories using complicated and time-consuming methods.

This do-it-yourself test kit allows you to check your drinking water for eight common contaminants. The Watersafe® All-In-One is fast, accurate, easy to use, and produce results on the spot.  Chronic exposure to chemical contaminants are particularly dangerous and these toxins are highly insidious, causing damage over months and years, often with serious or deadly effects. Water contaminants can be man-made or naturally occurring. The Watersafe® All-In-One can be used to test for the following eight contaminants :

  • Bacteria contaminated water may not smell or taste bad. Bacteria in drinking water contaminated by human waste has been linked to illnesses such as typhoid, dysentery, cholera, and hepatitis. When an area is flooded due to persistent rains, the sewage treatment systems can get overwhelmed and contaminate the drinking water supply. To learn more and read the [Bacteria Test Instructions]

  • Lead which causes a wide variety of developmental , neurological and kidney problems can be found in water. Some city water treatment facilities have lead in valves, gaskets, distribution mains and service lines. As you might expect some older homes have original lead plumbing, but surprisingly, many new homes also pose a risk, as excessive leaching from leaded solder and brass fixtures, such as faucets, can happen for the first year.  [Lead Test Instructions]

  • Pesticides have been discovered in every large watershed in the US and in a large percentage of groundwater wells and have been linked to increased cancer rates. To learn more and read the [Pesticide Test Instructions]

  • Nitrates/Nitrites although low levels of nitrates may occur naturally in water, sometimes higher levels, which are potentially dangerous to infants, are found in water. Nitrates may cause methemologlobinemi, a condition known as “blue baby” and other developmental problems. In 1992, when the survey was released, some 22,500 infants drinking domestic well water were estimated to be exposed to levels of nitrates exceeding the EPA safe drinking water limits; for community systems, the number was estimated to be 43,500 infants. Sources of nitrogen and nitrates may include runoff or seepage from fertilized agricultural lands, municipal and industrial waste water, refuse dumps, animal feedlots, septic tanks and private sewage disposal systems, urban drainage and decaying plant debris. Geologic formations and direction of ground water flow also may influence nitrate concentration.

  • Chlorine, used for disinfection, can react with organic matter to form cancer-causing trihalomethanes. By-products can increase cancer risk; bad taste and smell. You can read more about the Dangers of Chlorine. [pH/Hardness Test Instructions]

  • pH- Knowing the pH level of your water can help you prevent secondary effects - If the acidity of your water is too high, corrosion can leach out lead from pipes and plumbing as well as damage your water supply system and water heater. [pH/Hardness Test Instructions]

  • Hardness. Hard water is not a health hazard; in fact hard water is an excellent source of dietary calcium and magnesium. The problem with hard water is that lime scale builds up in pipes causing corrosion, reduce the efficiency of hot water heaters, increase water consumption when taking a bath (to remove soap), leave spotting and filming on dishes/cookware.

Watersafe® Bacteria Test Kit Instructions
 

  1. Keep tests out of reach of children or pets.

  2. Do not ingest anything from this test kit.

  3. Do not drink water sample used for testing.

  4. Store and use at room temperature (60-86 F).

  5. Do not use on hot water or water containing bleach detergents.

  6. Do not re-use any part of the test kit.

  7. Do not open packets or vial until you are ready to perform the tests.

  8. Read and follow all instructions carefully.

Bacteria Test Instructions:

  1. Take out the Bacteria Test vial and set upright on a flat surface.

  2. Collect water sample or turn on tap to a very slow stream.

  3. Carefully twist off cap and fill vial to 1/2 inch below the top (to 5 ml line).

  4. DO NOT OVERFILL and DO NOT SPILL the bacterial growth powder in the vial.

  5. Replace cap and twist on tightly. Shake the vial vigorously for 20 seconds.

  6. Place the capped vial upright in a warm area (70-90 F) where it cannot be disturbed for 48 hrs.

  7. After 48 hrs., observe the color of the liquid without opening the vial: 

Purple color: Negative Result Yellow Color: Positive Result

(No bacteria were detected)

(It is highly likely that potentially harmful bacteria were detected).

  1. For positive results, add bleach to the sample before pouring down the toilet, then wash hands carefully. Negative samples may be poured directly into the toilet. Discard vial in the trash.

Note: If your water tests outside the desired values, call 888.438.1942. Also, please note that Watersafe® is a screening test and can not be used to certify water as safe or unsafe for drinking.

Watersafe® provides approximate results ONLY when used in strict accordance with instructions. We expressly disclaims any liability resulting from the use of this product, failure to follow instructions, or reliance of test results.
 

Watersafe® Lead Test Kit Instructions

1. Open Lead packet and take out all contents. The packet contains a test vial, a dropper pipette, two Watersafe® Test Strips, and a desiccant (to be discarded).

2. Using dropper, place exactly TWO dropper-fuls of water sample into test vial. To pick up the sample, tightly squeeze the bulb at the end of the dropper and place the open end into the water sample. Release the bulb to pick up the sample, then squeeze again to expel the sample into the vial.

3. Swirl vial gently for several seconds. Place on a flat surface.

4. Place both test strips into the test vial, with arrows pointing DOWN.

5. Wait 10 minutes. Do not disturb strips or vial during this time. Blue lines will appear on the strips.

6. Take the strips out of the vial and lay them on a flat surface with the arrows pointing to the LEFT. 

Interpreting The 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 (next to number 1), 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 (Both LEFT and RIGHT lines are equally dark)

7. 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 or pesticides at a toxic level.

Watersafe pH/Hardness/Chlorine Kit Instructions
 

If levels of chlorine, hardness or pH are too high, your water could be damaging your plumbing, your pocketbook, and your health. pH - If the acidity of your water is too high, corrosion can leach out lead from pipes and damage your water supply system and water heater. Hardness - lime scale builds up in pipes causing corrosion, reduce the efficiency of hot water heaters, and require more water to remove soap. Chlorine - can increase cancer risk; bad taste and smell.

 

1. Carefully open pH/Hardness/Chlorine Test packet and take out test strip.

2. Immerse the reagent pads into the water sample and remove immediately. Hold the strip level for 15 seconds.

3. Match pH, Hardness and Total Chlorine Pads (in that order) to the color chart below.



pH (end pad)

Total Chlorine (pad nearest handle)

LR Total Hardness (middle pad)
