Each All-In-One test kit contains:
- One pH / hardness / chlorine test packet
- One lead / pesticide test packet
- One nitrate / nitrite test packet
- One bacteria test vial
- US Government EPA standards for safe levels of the contaminants being tested
The WaterSafe All In One Drinking Water Test Kit tests for 6 contaminants commonly found in drinking water:
The WaterSafe All-In-One kit also reports the pH & Hardness of your water.
We also offer the WaterSafe Home Drinking Water Bacteria Test Kit and the WaterSafe Home Drinking Water Lead Test Kit.
The WaterSafe All-In-One Home Drinking Water Test Kit is easy to use and incredibly effective.
Thanks to the WaterSafe All-In-One Water Test Kit, there's no need to send your water to a lab; you can test it yourself - from the comfort of your own home! This test kit will alert you to even the smallest traces of toxins from pesticides or fertilizers that may have seeped into your water supply. It's also small enough to take with you while traveling or on camping trips.
Maintain Good Health!
Testing the water at your child's school may help determine if it's safe to drink. Your family (and the family pet) will stay healthier by drinking uncontaminated water at home. Even your household plants will spring to life and maintain their beauty.
Useful For Any Type Of Home!
Get your water from a well? Is your water softener doing its job? Use the included hardness test and you'll know for sure. Ranchers and farmers may want to test their feed water to find out what their valuable livestock are drinking. Testing the water in new homes can detect whether or not the builder properly flushed the water lines. And older homes should be tested to determine if mineral contamination or lead is building-up in old city water pipes.
WaterSafe Drinking Water test kits can be a fun way to teach kids about the science of clean water. In 2006, a middle school girl in New Tampa Florida won First Place in a regional science fair using a similar kit to test the bacteria levels in the water at local fast food restaurants!
- 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

Bacteria Test Instructions:
- Set the Bacteria Test vial upright on a flat surface.
- Acquire a sample of the water you wish to test. For tap water, turn it on to a very slow stream.
- Gently remove the vial's cap and fill it to the 5ml line, or 1/2 inch below the top. It is important that you DO NOT overfill the vial and DO NOT allow the powder in the vial to spill. Replace the cap and twist it until it's secure on the vial.
- Shake the vial for about 20 seconds.
- Set the vial down on a flat surface in a warm area and let sit undisturbed for 48 hours.
- After 48 hours, note the color of the liquid inside the vial. DO NOT open the vial.
- If the results are negative, simply pour into the toilet and flush. For either result, the vial can be disposed into the trash.
If the test results come up positive, add a drop of bleach to the contents of the vial before flushing down the toilet.
Lead / Pesticide Test Instructions:
- Remove the contents of the Lead / Pesticide packet. This includes one test vial, two WaterSafe test strips, one dropper pipette, and a desiccant.
- With the dropper, insert exactly two dropper-fuls of the water you wish to sample into the test vial.
- Gently swirl the vial for a few seconds to stir the contents. Then set it down on a flat surface.
- Place both of the test strips into the vial, making sure that the arrows are pointing down. Let the vial sit undisturbed for 10 minutes.
- During this time, blue lines will appear on the strips. After 10 minutes, remove the strips from the vial and place them down on a flat surface with the arrows pointing to your left.
- The results are NEGATIVE if the left line (closer to the number 1) is darker than the line on the right (closer to number 2).
The results are POSITIVE if the right line is darker than the left or if both lines appear to be the same. If you receive positive results, your water may contain toxic levels of lead or pesticides.
If no lines appear at all or if both lines are too light to tell, the test did not complete properly and you will need to repeat the test with a new test kit.
Nitrate / Nitrite Test Instructions:
- Open the Nitrate / Nitrite Test packet and remove the test strip.
- Dip and hold the reagent pads into the water sample you wish to test for 2 seconds and remove.
- Wait for 1 minute and compare the colors to the charts below. The colors should be stable for about 1 minute.

pH / Hardness / Chlorine Test Instructions:
- Open the pH / Hardness / Chlorine Test packet (from the end marked "open") and remove the test stip.
- Dip and hold the reagent pads into the water sample you wish to test for 5 seconds, moving them gently back and forth.
- Remove the pads from the sample and give them a good shake to remove any excess water.
- Wait 20 seconds and compare the results to the charts below.
