This Water Quality Test Kit tests 2 water samples for 7 of the key parameters and 1 water sample for bacteria – making it ideal to check the quality of your water. This kit tests for: coliform bacteria, nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, total alkalinity, total chlorine, free chlorine & pH. Using these parameters, the settings on household appliances like dishwashers, water improvers can be adjusted for optimum performance.

Suitable for: fresh water samples, including water from taps, wells, springs, boreholes, ponds as well as rain water

  • Easy to use kit provides a convenient way to check your water for 8 key parameters.
  • Do-it-yourself test kit. Everything needed to perform and analyse the tests is included.
  • The tests are fast and provide you with results in minutes. Only the bacteria test takes 24 – 48 hours.
  • Requires no technical training, instrumentation, powders, liquids or tablets. Non-toxic ingredients.
  • Easily compare your results to the drinking water standard for the EU/UK using the information included.
  • The bacteria test includes an E.coli check – so should you have a positive test result than you check with a UV-light (separately available) if E.coli was present in the water sample.
  • Each test kit includes:
    • 1 x coliform bacteria test, with simultaneous E.coli detection.
    • 2 tests for each: free & total chlorine, nitrate & nitrite, hardness, pH and total alkalinity.
    • Detailed test instructions, colour chart, handy table to note down results and compare them to the drinking water guidelines as well as lots of additional information about the test results.

This test uses our simple Dip-Wait-Read Method. To view the full Instructions click here.


Test Sensitivity Test Range Result Time
Bacteria* 1 colony per 100 ml present/absent 24 to 48 hours
Total Alkalinity 0, 40, 80, 120, 180, 240, 500 ppm (mg/l) 0 to 500 ppm 30 seconds
Free Chlorine 0, 0.05, 0.2, 0.6, 1.5, 4, 10 ppm (mg/l) 0 to 10 ppm 50 seconds
Total Chlorine 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 0.8, 4, 10 ppm (mg/l) 0 to 10 ppm 40 seconds
Total Hardness 0, 50, 120, 250, 425, 1000 ppm (mg/l) / 0, 3, 7, 15, 25, 59 GPG 0 to 1000 ppm 30 seconds
Nitrate (as N)** 0, 2, 10, 20, 50 ppm (mg/l) 0 to 50 ppm 1 minute
Nitrite (as N)** 0, 0.2, 1, 1.5, 3 ppm (mg/l) 0 to 3 ppm 1 minute
pH 2, 4, 5, 6.5, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12 2 to 12 30 seconds

*The bacteria test kit detects total coliform (which is  faecal bacteria for the most part) which are commonly used to determine the sanitary quality of water. Should the result be positive then the presence of E.coli can be established using a UV-light.

**Results are shown as Nitrogen (as N), not Nitrate (NO3) and Nitrite (NO2). For conversion of levels to NO2 and NO3, multiply Nitrate value by 4.4 to get NO3 mg/l; and multiply Nitrite value by 3.3 to get NO2 mg/l.
