Bacteria are the most likely source of acute water-borne disease. The presence of bacteria in drinking water is usually the result of a problem with your region's water-treatment plant or private well. Certain treatment methods may not be working properly and adequately removing all viable microbes. A positive result indicates that your water may be contaminated with bacteria that can be harmful to your health or cause disease.
Keep the test kit out of reach of children and animals. Do not ingest any part of the test kit, or any water used in the test. Do not open any parts of the kit until you're ready to perform the test. Avoid using hot water or water containing bleach detergents. This is a one-time-use test kit - no part of it can be reused.

How do I perform the test
1. Take out the Bacteria Test vial and set upright on a flat surface
2. Collect water sample or turn on tap to a very slow stream
3. Carefully twist off cap and fill vial to 1/2 inch below the top (to 5ml line). Do not overfill and do not spill the bacterial growth powder in the vial
4. Replace cap and twist on tightly. Shake the vial vigorously for 20 seconds
5. Place the capped vial upright in a warm area (70° - 90°F) where it cannot be disturbed for 48 hours
6. After 48 hours, observe the color of the liquid without opening the vial

Indications:
  • Purple color: Negative Result (No bacteria were detected)
  • Yellow Color: Positive Result (It is highly likely that potentially harmful bacteria were detected)

For positive results, add bleach to the sample before pouring down the toilet, then wash hands carefully. Negative samples may be poured directly into the toilet. Discard vial in the trash
