Our Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test kit is a must if you are concerned about your water quality and wellness. Lead from pipes can easily leach into your household water which is being used for drinking, washing and cooking. This common toxic contaminant, even at low levels, has been linked to learning disabilities, kidney damage and muscle disorders. The simple, one-step test kit accurately detects dissolved lead at the EPA Action Level of 15 parts per billion. The Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test is an affordable and quick way to see if your water has harmful levels of lead.

Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test Kits are ideal for someone who…

  • Is concerned about the water quality and needs to detect if there are high levels of lead in the water system.
  • Has older pipes and needs to see if lead is leaching into the household water system.

Features of Watersafe Drinking Water Lead Test Kits

  • Detects dissolved lead at the EPA Action Level of 15 parts per billion
  • Test results within 10 minutes – no mixing or measuring required
  • Kit includes: 1 Lead test strip, 1 sample vial, 1 dropper pipette and 1 desiccant packet (to be discarded)
  • Simple, easy instructions and interpretation of results
  • Non-toxic test materials
  • EPA-based, laboratory certified test kit

How it Works:

Toxic lead can leach from pipes and fixtures and contaminate the water used for cooking, washing and drinking in your household. Lead is so toxic that even very low levels can be dangerous. As with other water contaminants, the risks of lead damage are much greater for children than for adults – families should be particularly concerned about the health of the water supply. Consumers should test lead levels at each faucet in the home, especially if the plumbing fixtures could be from the 1980’s or older.

Product Usage:

How do I perform the test
1. Take all contents out of the foil packet. Using dropper pipette, place water sample in the test vial. To pick up sample, tightly squeeze the bulb at the end of the pipette and place the open end into water sample. Release the bulb to pick up sample and next squeeze the bulb to add the sample to the vial. Use only one pipette-full of water. Swirl vial gently for several seconds. Place vial on a flat surface
2. Place the Watersafe test strip into test vial, with arrows pointing down
3. Wait 10 minutes. Do not disturb strip or vial during this time. Blue lines will appear on the strip
4. Take the strip out of the vial and read results:

  • Negative: the LEFT line (next to number 1) is darker than the RIGHT line (next to number 2). If you only see the LEFT line, the test is negative.
  • Positive: the RIGHT line (next to number 2) is darker than the LEFT line (next to number 1), or lines are equally dark.

Note: if no lines appear, or both lines are very light, the test did not run properly and the result is not valid. If a test strip shows a positive result, your water sample may contain lead at a toxic level.

Does the appearance of the top line indicate there could be some lead, even if the line is lighter than the bottom vs. A test that gives no top line?
I have been thinking about my result with a faint line to the left of the 1. I think there are 2 chemical strips to the right of the 1 and left of the 2. The first strip is a control and indicates water volume. The second is the presence of lead. If the lead is darker than the volume, the lead is in a concentration that is a concern and is reliably readable by this test. I think the strip I see to the left of the one is there to cause the control to change color by being drawn by water to the first line to create a chemical reaction or mine was defective with lines shifted to the left. This is my guess. An explanation from the manufacturer would help. Maybe remove some negative responses for failed tests. If I am correct, the absence of any lines would be too little water. Faint lines would be too little water or too much water that carries away and dilutes the lines.

What happens if the two lines do not appear between the 1 and 2? I have a dark line to the right of the 1 and a faint line to the left of the 1.
It sounds like it’s slightly positive. It probably wouldn’t hurt to do another test.

How many samples can I test with this kit?
They are all single use

Question: how many testing strips are there in this kit? (I’m looking to test my drinking water with the cold and hot water running separately)?
One. So I would pick the hot water tap, just before it turned hot at the beginning of the day after water had been sitting still in the pipes all night.
