In Florida it is pretty common to find that people refrain from drinking tap water. I can’t tell you exactly why most people feel this way, I can tell you for me personally I just don’t like the taste of it. When I was young I was pretty much conditioned to not drink water out of the faucet. So when we visited my father in Michigan for the summers I always felt weird when he would fill a glass of water from the tap. Have you ever wondered what was in your water? Is it safe to drink? Have you ever thought of having water testing done?
Test Assured Water Testing Kits
You can test your water yourself with the water testing kits from Test Assured. With the complete water analysis water testing kit you will be able to preform 10 test on your water. Each kit includes:
- Lead Test
- Bacteria Test
- Pesticide Test
- Nitrates & Nitrites
- Chlorine Level
- pH Levels Check
The water testing kit was very easy to use, with simply instructions. The first test we preformed was the bacteria test. This is the only test that requires time as it needs to set for 48 hours for you to see the results. I actually was quite surprised to find that this one actually showed a positive result for me for bacteria in my water. While we do not drink the water we do cook with it, brush our teeth, etc. However my first thought is did I do the test right? Did I read it too late? Is it the correct result? If there is bacteria in my water where do I go from here? It would be nice to have a resource of what to do if you find a result that is not considered average.
The water testing for the chlorine, copper, nitrate, and nitrite came out within the average ranges. As you can see this test is simply taking a sample of water and using the stick provided, you dip into the water per the instructions and then read your results.
I also felt that the alkalinity, pH, and hardness test came out within the average range as well, though it is kinda tough to tell where the pH lies. If you have concerns about your water or just want to do your own water testing the kits from Test Assured are priced reasonably with this complete test currently priced at $29.95. This price comes with a 100% money back guarantee and includes online and toll-free support.
