Here is the fine print:

Please note that this test kit is a screening test and can not be used to certify any water as safe or unsafe for drinking. This test provides you with approximate results ONLY when used EXACTLY as instructed. Inlet Innovations, Inc DBA and Test Assured expressly disclaims any liability resulting from the use of this product, failure to follow instructions or reliance on the test results.



Carefully open the foil that contains the Lead & Pesticide test kit.



The package should contain:

  1. Test vial
  2. Dropper pipette
  3. Two test strips
  4. Desiccant pack (to be discarded).











Using the dropper, place Exactly TWO dropperfuls of  the water sample into the test vial.

Pick up a water sample by squeezing the top bulb at the end of the dropper and place the open end into your water.

Release the bulb to suck in the water sample into the lower dropper chamber.

Expel the water into your test vial by simply squeezing the bulb again.





Swirl the test vial for a few seconds then place it on a flat surface.

Preferably a horizontal surface.

With both arrows pointing DOWN,   Place both test strips into the vial.

Wait 10 minutes

Do not disturb the test during this time

While you wait, toast a bagel, do ten push-ups, take out the trash, walk your hedgehog,

just make sure you’re back in 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes you will see pretty blue lines appear on the test strips.

Take the strips out of the vial and lay them on a flat surface

with the arrows pointing to the LEFT. The other LEFT

Now we check the results!



If your water is clean the LEFT line next to the number 1 will be darker and the RIGHT line next to the number 2 will be lighter.







If you see only one line next to the number 1 then the test is negative. YEA! Time to celebrate and drink gallons and gallons of water, take long showers, and you should consider going into the bottled water business!





If your water sucks the RIGHT line next to the number 2 will be darker and the LEFT line next to the number 1 will be lighter.

If both LEFT and RIGHT lines are equally dark then the test is POSITIVE.

(If a test strip shows a positive result then your water sample may contain pesticide or lead at a possibly toxic level, Further testing is highly recommended.)

PLEASE NOTE: If no lines appear or both of the lines are very faint, the test may not have run properly and the results are invalid.
