Water Quality Testing

Protect your family – your water should be safe to drink and acceptable for all other household uses. Though your water may appear safe it  may contain water contaminants that you cannot detect through taste and clarity alone. This test kit gives you rapid, comprehensive results for several of the most common contaminants found in drinking water.

The Asianmedic recommends that you test your water at least once a year and especially if you are on a private well since water quality is your responsibility. The results you get from this kit will give you a comparison to the Asianmedic recommended levels, letting you assess the quality of water you drink.

Instructions are clear and concise, no harsh chemicals are used, no expensive equipment is required, and the results are easy to read.

Strip Qty. Contaminant Potential Health Effects from Ingestion of or Potential Problems Caused by Contaminated Water
1 Bacteria Indicate the possible presence of disease-causing bacteria from human or animal waste
2 Lead Infants and children: delays in physical and mental development Adults: kidney problems; high blood pressure
3 Nitrate Shortness of breath and “blue baby syndrome” – found in infants less than 6 months. The child could become seriously ill and if left untreated, may die.
4 Nitrite Potential birth defects associated with pregnant women
5 Iron Gives a rusty color to the water and may affect taste
6 Sulfate Dehydration and laxative effect
7 Pesticides Acute poisoning symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, stomach and intestinal upset, numbness of extremities, spasms, convulsions and heart attacks
8 Copper Vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea. Kidney and liver damage in infants
9 Free Chlorine Cancer
10 Total Chlorine Eye/nose irritation; stomach discomfort, anemia, nervous system effects
11 pH value Can be used as an indicator whether the water is hard or soft.  The pH level of your water should be checked to determine whether your water is acidic. Water with a low pH (less than 7.0) may have problems with leaching of copper and lead from residential plumbing.
12 Total Alkalinity Can have a drying effect on the skin
13 Total Hardness Can cause scale buildup in appliances and hard water deposits on glass and other surfaces
