It was actually kind of fun performing the tests, like doing a science experiment! Most of the tests were as simple as dunking the test strip into a small amount of tap water and reading the results after a short period of time. Only one test (bacteria) required a 48-hour wait to read the results.
The results were super-easy to read with the helpful instructions provided. For example, our bacteria test, shown below, turned the water purple, which was great news considering the results below:
No Bacteria was detected in your water sample.
Yellow Color = Positive Result
This means it is very likely that potentially harmful bacteria was detected. Further testing is highly recommended.
For the other tests, it was just a matter of matching the color of the test strip to the charts provided.
We were thrilled to see that all of our tests showed that our city water is safe to drink! That really gives us peace of mind as parents.
