this popular kit are tests for 6 more water problems: 8 different tests in one
1. IRON can stain plumbing fixtures and laundry, even form
2. HARD WATER (mineral deposit
buildup) damages water heaters and plumbing and wastes soap, detergents and
shampoo. Parallels between hard water and kidney stones have prompted the CDC to
request more studies.
3. CHLORINE kills most bacteria, but not
cryptosporidium cysts, and chlorine has been linked to cancer. Objectionable
odor and taste discourage people from drinking the quantity of daily water they
4. COPPER above 1.3 ppm can poison red blood cells, causing
jaundice, pancreatitis and hemolytic anemia.
5. ACIDITY can cause corrosion (blue-green copper stains)
and lead to costly plumbing damage.
6. NITRATES can indicate pollution by fertilizer or waste.
7. NITRITES can also indicate fertilizer and waste
pollution. For infants, even low concentrations of nitrates or nitrites can
cause cyanosis (blood poisoning) which can be fatal, commonly called "blue baby
8. pH, if levels are too high, may create objectionable
taste in the water. It can also cause dry skin conditions.

Treating for lead contamination is critical
since lead poisoning can present serious health risks such as gastrointestinal
disorders, paralysis, brain and spinal cord damage, especially in children. For
pregnant women, lead contamination can result in miscarriage.
The U.S. EPA estimates more than
40,000 citizens use water that contains harmful levels of lead. Most municipal
plants do test for lead, but lead contamination is most likely to come from the
distribution network or even our home's plumbing system. Older homes often have
lead in the pipes. Lead in pipes was banned from new home construction in
1987. Newer homes often have lead in the soldered pipe fittings. Lead was not
banned from plumbing fixtures in the U.S. until 1996.
Initial testing should be done every 6
months, then every two years. It is critical to check the primary faucet used
for drinking and cooking water, usually the kitchen tap. It's best to check
every faucet. Each kit will check water from one tap.
PurTest Lead Test
is a rapid immunoassay test for lead in drinking water. The test can detect lead
at very low levels, even below the EPA action level of 15 parts per billion
COPPER TEST: Copper
contamination in water can lead to brain and liver damage, jaundice,
