Lead in Water Test Kit


This analysis will detect the presence of lead in water. Schools need to test for lead in their water regularly. Lead is a harmful contaminant and even the tiniest amount of it can accumulate in our bodies.

Our reports will give you a precise number that’s above the reporting limit, and either above or below the regulatory guidelines.

The number of samples you test for is at your discretion, along with your advising health authority. It is recommended that all separate drinking water sources be tested (water fountains and lunchroom taps, for example). One sample should be collected before flushing the water (running the tap for at least two minutes) and another separate sample collected after flushing.

What it tests

This analysis will detect the presence of lead in water.

Lead: Lead is a neurotoxin, a carcinogen, and a heavy metal that bioaccumulates in the body. Children and pregnant mothers are the most vulnerable since even extremely low levels of exposure are toxic and very difficult to eliminate. Lead gets into the water most commonly from the corrosion of plumbing parts. It was common for older houses to use paint with lead inside it. If you suspect your house has this, we urge you to get our Lead in Paint test kit as soon as possible!

The number of samples you test for is at your discretion, along with your advising health authority. It is recommended that all separate drinking water sources be tested (water fountains and lunchroom taps, for example). One sample should be collected before flushing the water (running the tap for at least two minutes) and another separate sample collected after flushing.
