What it tests
This package tests for total coliforms and e.coli in water.
Total Coliforms and E.coli: Exists naturally in soil, water, and vegetation. Nearby septic systems, sewage discharges, and domestic or wild animal life can promote coliform growth. Most coliform bacteria will not likely cause any illness. However, these bacterias are used as indicators in water tests because their presence shows if disease-causing organisms (pathogens) could also be in the water. E.coli is considered the type of coliform that is the best indicator of fecal contamination with the possibility to carry pathogens.
