Customer Reviews:

  • OK for basic go/no-go testing
    This drinking water test kit is a decent go/no-go for the various tests listed. It won't give you exact numbers for concentrations and what not, but it will tell you if you're above/below federal limits (local limits may likely be lower, but with this test you won't have numbers to compare anyways).

    All the tests can be completed in seconds or minutes, except for the e.coli which takes many hours (overnight basically) to get "results".

    Price is good....more info
  • Not even one star; in fact, minus 5 stars
    This product had poor instructions - one set on one page and another set of instructions on another page - both extremely unclear. Of all the produts I've dealt with, this one in undoubtedly the bottom of the list. I will try to get refund from Amazon....more info
  • For piece of mind
    We bought an old house and were concerned with lead. This test was easy to perform and gave us piece of mind that our water was a-ok. ...more info
  • Don't buy this item!
    Two very obvious problems with this product!!
    First, I received the product in an unsealed container, and it said it should contain 4 tests (1 bacteria, 1 lead/pesticide, 1 nitrate, 1 ph/hardness). It was missing the nitrate test (I had a duplicate ph/hardness test instead). I called Amazon and they shipped me another one (free - good customer service), only to find it had the same problem (unsealed box and had no nitrate test, duplicate ph/hardness tests). I figured I at least got a 8 tests out of the deal, even though I still haven't received a Nitrate test.
    My second issue is that I just noticed that BOTH boxes have an expiration sticker that says "Exp July 2009" over top of a sticker that says "Exp March 2007" and a final actual expiration stamp of "Feb 2006". I have no idea if I can even trust the results.
    Don't be fooled - find another product!...more info
  • Simple and Effective
    The First Alert Drinking Water Test Kit is exactly what it claims to be: a simple and effective way to monitor the healthfulness of your drinking water. Simple instructions, clearly labeled materials, and 15 minutes is all it took to get a report card on my well water. All clear!...more info
  • I ordered 4 of these and all came missing the ph/Chlorine/Hardness Test. Amazon gave full refund.

    They must not have been packed correctly at the factory.

    You might want to call and ask if that test is now included before ordering....more info
  • Did the job
    This product was easy to use and did exactly what it said it would. The only bad thing about it was it was so quick & easy that you found yourself being unhappy that it was all finished and nothing was wrong. Which I admit is peculiar since I certainly didn't really want to find I'd been drinking bad water....more info
