How to use (please refer to product for detailed instructions):
- Fill mug with 100ml of water sample to be tested and securely recap bottle.
- Shake the mug until all media is dissolved, solution should be clear yellow.
- Incubate for 24 hours or 48 hours, depending on temperature.
- After incubation time, observe the colour of the sample: a. clear yellow = negative for coliforms; b. blue-green = positive for coliforms
- E.coli confirmation: shine a blacklight from the bottom of the sample: no fluorescence = negative for E.coli; blue fluorescence = positive for E.coli*
- Dispose of water sample safely
*a blacklight with a wavelength of 365 is recommended , ie. the NVF-4 blacklight
PLUS Lead Test
The UK maximum contaminant level for Lead in tap water set by DWI/DEFRA is 10µg/l (= 0.01mg/l = 0.01ppm).
Sensitivity: presence/absence measured at a level of 15ppb (= 0.015 mg/l)
How to Use the Lead Test:
- 1. Open Lead packet and take out all contents. The foil packet contains a test vial, a dropper pipette, one test strip, and a desiccant (to be discarded).
- 2. Using dropper, place water sample into test vial. To pick up the sample, tightly squeeze the bulb at the end of the dropper and place the open end into the water sample. Release the bulb to pick up the sample, then squeeze again to expel the sample into the vial. Use only one pipette-full of water.
- 3. Swirl vial gently for several seconds. Place on a flat surface.
- 4. Place test strip into the test vial, with arrows pointing DOWN.
- 5. Wait 10 minutes. Do not disturb strips or vial during this time. Lines will appear on the strip.
- 6. Take the strip out of the vial and read result.
Negative: Bottom line (next to number 1) is darker than the top line (next to number 2).
Positive: Top line (next to number 2) is darker than the bottom line (next to number 1), or lines are equally dark.
If a test strip shows a positive result, your water sample may contain lead at a toxic level. Take appropriate action.
Sensitivity & Test time:
|Iron||0.0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.3, 1.0 ppm (mg/l)||25 seconds|
|Copper||0.0, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 ppm (mg/l)||50 seconds|
|Nitrate||0, 2, 10, 20, 50 ppm (mg/l)||1 minute|
|Nitrite||0, 0.2, 1, 1.5, 3 ppm (mg/l)||1 minute|

|Total Alkalinity||0, 40, 80, 120, 180, 240, 500 ppm (mg/l)||30 seconds|
|Total Chlorine||0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 0.8, 1, 4, 10 ppm (mg/l)||40 seconds|
|Total Hardness||0, 50, 120, 250, 425, 1000 ppm (mg/l)||30 seconds|
|Free Chlorine||0, 0.05, 0.2, 0.6, 1.5, 4, 10 ppm (mg/l)||45 seconds|
|Sulfate||0, 250, >500 ppm (mg/l)||35 seconds|
|Hydrogen Sulfide||0.3, 0.5, 1, 2 ppm (mg/l)||30 seconds|
|Lead||presence/absence measured at a level of 15ppb (= 0.015 mg/l)||10 minutes|
*The bacteria test kit detects total coliform (which is faecal bacteria for the most part) and is a presence/absence test of 1cfu/ml. Should the result be positive, then the presence of E.coli can be detected using a blacklight with a wavelength of 365 (like the NVF-4 blacklight).
