What Is The Best Test Kit For Water Safety?


I will be moving into a house with a well water system. I would like to ensure that it is safe to drink in terms of heavy metals and pesticides. I see the $49.95 well water test on your website, which is the most comprehensive, but in your FAQs it says that determining the safety of the water is not included. How do I go about purchasing the most comprehensive test, in addition to determining safety? Thank you for providing me with the exact instructions on what to ask for and what to purchase from your company.

Hello Katherine,

We would recommend the WaterCheck comprehensive lab test for your well water. This test is a really good value because it is done by an EPA certified lab, and tests for many metals, pesticides and herbicides. To view the complete list of tests, click here.

Please note that it takes two to three weeks on average to complete these lab tests. Shipping is free to your location, but shipping to the laboratory is not included in the price. Also, next day air shipping will be necessary for the bacteria test to be completed properly.

National Testing Laboratories is one of the largest independent laboratories in the U.S. 
specializing in the analysis of drinking water for chemical and microbiological contamination.
