To test our drinking water(well) for Bactria
No I don't believe so....you have to put water in the bottle in which there is a tablet and wait to see if the water turns a specific color. I never checked for a test for surface bacteria but imagine there is probably one out there. Hope that helps.
No, this is made to test drinking water.
It is only a positive or negative result, amounts are not measured. However, if positive then a significant problem exists since the threshold for a positive test is high enough to indicate unsafe water.
I believe that it takes a minimum of 48 hours for the test to be completed. Read the instructions carefully. I took an handiwipe with alcohol on it and rubbed it over the nozzle of the sink to kill any germs that might be on it....( the professional kit that comes from the town I live in said to do that or to put a lit match on the faucet for a few seconds to kill the germs on it) Next the tube is filled to the line and capped...Don't worry if its slightly overfilled or under filled. Just cap it and put it in a dark cabinet away from sunlight and check it in 48 hours.
Shelf life of the bacteria test is 2 years from time of manufacture. Thank you,
This test only provides the fact that your have bacteria not the type. To ascertain which type you might be dealing with they have a test available for purchase that includes a special container to a send a sample of your water to the lab for specific testing to provide more on the type of bacteria that might show up in your water sample. I believe it cost around $40.00 to have it lab tested.
The Purtest UV will kill bacteria in drinking water. Thank you,
No, it only provides a visual record if there is bacteria....If you need a printout, then you will need to send the water sample to a lab that does water testing.
The powder inside the bacteria test vial is a media used to detect the presence or absence of coliform bacteria.
