Drinking water that contains arsenic has been identified as a serious health concern in the United States. Certain areas of the country have water that is sourced from places with bedrock that contains exceptionally high levels of arsenic. Symptoms associated with arsenic poisoning include thickening or discoloration of the skin, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, numbness in hands and feet, vision trouble, and partial paralysis. Whether you use municipal water, well water, or even bottled water, you may be at risk for exposure to arsenic in your drinking water.
The U.S. EPA has established a current maximum contaminant level (MCL) for arsenic at 10 micrograms per liter (or parts per billion). Testing your water for arsenic is an important safety measure to safeguard the health and well-being of your family. Our Arsenic Water Test Kit contains everything you need to have a sample of your water analyzed specifically for arsenic in our certified lab. Use the sample vial and the postage-paid package to send your sample for analysis and find out exactly how much arsenic is in your water.
