Summary:I recently moved into a new home and since we love to drink lots of water it was important to find out if there were any traces of harmful contaminants. The Watersafe City Water Test Kit (formerly called the All-In-One Water Test Kit) was the perfect start to see at first glance if we needed to take action and go a step further by spending money on a professional lab evaluation or install certain water purifiers. This affordable test kit included everything we needed to see if there were any common chemicals, such as bacteria, lead, nitrates, in the drinking water. I was very impressed with how easy the instructions were to understand since each step was clearly written out. First I started with the Bacteria test. It was so simple, all you needed was to place a small amount of water into the vial given (and make sure you have a slow steady stream when filling it up - it will fill up fast!), shake vigorously and wait 48 hours for the results. Since the test kit compares to the EPA recommended levels, it was clearly determined after waiting 48 hours that our water did not contain harmful traces of bacteria. Next was to test for the lead, which was extremely easy as well, especially since it included a nice dropper to collect the water sample. Without this nice little feature it could have made performing the test a bit more difficult. I moved on to the other tests with ease and as mentioned before the instructions were very detailed ensuring no mistakes were made. After seeing all of the results, to my surprise there were no 'red flags' and our drinking water was at a healthy level. However, since we still enjoy crisp, great tasting drinking water we still eventually plan on installing a water filter.
