Schools need regular testing.

“Every kid should have access to clean, safe water from the water fountains at school.”

  • As of September 2016, schools are required to test 1/3 of all their public water fountains annually.
  • Schools built before 1990 are more vulnerable to lead contamination. The problem with your water could be the plumbing fixtures that were set up when the school was constructed!

WHY CARO?

We’ve served more than half of the school boards in British Columbia! We have the capabilities and expertise to service all of Canada.

The Ministry of Education needs accredited testing that complies with the Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines

Common Questions

How do I order?

Order Online!  Yes, it’s that easy! You can order lead testing through our online store here, and we will process and deliver your sampling supplies right to your door or you can come to pick them up in person at a CARO location in BC, Alberta or the Yukon.

 

How many samples do I need?

This 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). 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 is included?

This per sample price includes:
– A sterile sampling container and a cooler for shipment back to CARO
– Accredited analysis of a sample for lead
– An emailed report detailing the test results
