Know what you and your family are drinking with our Heavy Metals Test Strips. Whether you have tap water or municipal water, it may contain trace amounts of potentially harmful heavy metals. These metals enter water sources through the soil or can be absorbed from metal pipes.
This simple to use test kit can help you to identify the presence of heavy metals in your water at home, school, or the office. Using the easy to read color chart, you’ll be able to see the metal levels within two minutes. Easily test for multiple heavy metals including Copper, Lead, Cobalt, Nickel, Zinc, Cadmium, Mercury, and other +2 valence metals. Detection levels range from <10, up to 1000 ppb (µg/L). If more than one metal is detected in a sample, the value reported represents the sum of all the concentrations detected.
**PLEASE NOTE: This is a cumulative test, so it will not show you specific presences of different types of metals. For people looking to test for specifically lead, please be sure to use our Lead In Water Test instead as it will specifically be testing for lead levels in your water source.**
The test strips use chemical reagents to show the presence of heavy metals. When free metal ions from heavy metals are present, they react with the reagent causing the strip to change color. The more metal ions that are present, the darker the color change on the strip.
Our test strips are foil wrapped to guarantee freshness for best results. The strips are noncarcinogenic and are safe and easy to use with no chemicals to mix and no expensive equipment required. Instructions are clear, and results are easy to see on the included color chart.
