Watersafe City Water Test Kit Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today weíre looking at the Watersafe City Water Test Kit.
Now, there are many good reasons to test your water with a test kit. For example, if you move to a new location, or if really you have any change in your water supply. Perhaps you live in a community that has a shared well and for some reason they needed to drill a new well. Well, now that you have a new water supply itís a really good idea to test that water and have a baseline so that you know how to treat your water situation. Of course, itís always a good idea to test when you are suspicious of particular contaminants. Itís really the only way to settle or confirm those suspicions.
Now, this kit is aimed specifically at municipally treated water, and therefore, does not include a test for either iron or copper, which are going to be much more common in untreated well water.
Now, this kit tests for lead, chlorine, nitrates and nitrites, bacteria, pesticides, hardness, and ph. Thatís a nice solid spectrum of contaminants for typical municipal water.
Using a test kit is really the only scientific way to know the condition of your water and then how best to treat your specific situation. Itís really amazing how many people install a filter system or a treatment system without testing their water first, only to discover that what theyíre using doesnít even deal with their particular problem.
That is an unfortunate circumstance that you can avoid by simply testing your water first, and then using those results to make an informed decision about how to best to treat your specific situation.
Again, this is the Watersafe City Water Test Kit, and Iím your host Tony the Filter Doctor.
