The WaterCheck test kit is a screening tool to detect fecal contamination in drinking water.
The Water Check Bacteria Test Kit test simultaneously determines the Presence or Absence of Coliform and E. coil bacteria, indicative of fecal pollution. WaterCheckTM is an EPA based test and is sensitive enough to meet national drinking water standards, detecting the presence of a single colony forming unit (cfu) per 100 mL of water. Kit is a quick indicator it does not prevent coliforms or advise of any specific cleanup method. Once the presence of Coliforms are detected more elaborate testing should be done to confirm pollutant and determine clean up, purification, methodoology.
