Hi, does this test for mold also? Can’t find a kit to test water for mold!

Asked by Beth July 26, 2018

Answer

No, this test does not check for mold.

Will this product tell me how many Colony Forming Units per Milliter (CFU/ml) of drinking water?

Asked by KT August 4, 2016

Answer

To find this measurement, you have to send the test in.

How long does it usually take to get the results back from the lab?

Asked by GreatBear101 August 1, 2016

Answer

Two Weeks according to the instructions. However, this kit has a self test which takes at least 48 hours and as long as 72 hours. I bought several with the intention of sending my sample in but the first self test results were negative after 48 and then 72 hours. The kit is a Petri dish and is either used as a self test or a send in lab test.

What do they test for at the lab

Asked by Terrie May 19, 2016

Answer

The PRO-LAB Bacteria in Water Test Kit identifies the presence of eColi and Total Coliform bacteria.

How accurate are the tests done at home?

Answers

These testing kits are horribly inaccurate! Unless you take extreme precautions against environmental contamination, these results are worth nothing. Don't waste your money.

How many tests can be done with each kit?

If you're smart, you can separate the contents of the test bottle into other multiple sterile test bottles for use later.

Used it for home well water test. Instructions were not clear on how to read the results. I checked with a chemist and he said to count all the spots. Product seemed to do ok.
