Did you know that there are about a million cells of bacteria in every milliliter of fresh water? Well, it is true. And when the water gets so contaminated by hazardous bacteria, it can cause problems to human’s health, or worse, death. Digestive problems, fever, nausea, diarrhea are common problems caused by bacteria.
That is why we need to know and control the number of bacteria cells by doing a test at home, especially when you store fresh water in drums for latter use.
PRO-LAB’s Bacteria in water test kit is simple but helpful in identifying dangerous bacteria (Coliform and E. Coli) in 48 hours. EPA also recommends doing the total coliform and E. coli bacteria testing twice a year. These are the standard tests for the quality of food and drinks. If you want a more thorough research on the exact count and type of bacteria, a lab analysis is available with additional US$30 fee.
