Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Check the well water yourself I have a weekend lake house with a well for my water. Wells are great, except when you have problems with them, then not so much. We have had several problems, all involving stuff in the water that should not be. To make a long story short, we initially had bacteria from ground water seeping in around the casing. Got that fixed last year with a bit of creative concrete work. This year, we had a strange sulfur smell from the water. First check was to see if it was safe. This kit did the trick. Next was another kit to detect hydrogen sulfate. In the end adding a carbon filter after a pleated filter fixed the problem. I bought two different kits to insure they agreed with each other. They did. November 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use, and works this product did the trick! It was easy to use, and within a reasonable amount of time to allow any possible bacteria to grow in the culture(ours was negative), we had our answer in the two day time frame predicted. What a relief. Although the price competively wasn't bad, you would think a second bacteria test would be included in the package... December 7, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good testing product Very pleased with the performance of this test kit. It worked well and is much less expensive then testing water at a local lab. July 20, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor performance. Easy to use. We were checking for Coli bacteria in our drinking water. We followed the directions exactly. Results were different than a licensed lab testing facility. August 14, 2012
