Is the water in your holding tanks Safe?
To ensure drinking water safety, health authorities suggest test potable water at least twice per year. Performing a water test, will alert you to the presence of fecal contamination.
The WaterCheck™ test kit is a screening tool to detect contamination in water. The test determines the presence or absence of coliforms including E. coli bacteria. WaterCheck™ is sensitive enough to detect a single colony forming unit (cfu) per 100 ml of water. It is simple to perform, easy to interpret and requires minimal preparation.
Principle of Use
WaterCheck™ is based on the unique ability of coliform bacteria to utilize specialized nutrients and reagents to form a distinctive blue-green color. The presence or absence of a single cfu of coliform/E.coli in water is an international standard measure to determine safe drinking water. If the water sample is contaminated with just a single cfu, a visible blue-green colour will develop.
Easy to Use
WaterCheck™ is a simple do it yourself test. The kit is provided as a sterilized plastic bag, which is ready to use. Water sample collection, mixing, incubation, and observation are all done in the same bag.
