About water tests, etc.

Ok, since this is still up for comment on another thread, I thought I'd bring it over here...

Latest post was something like this:
You can get test bottles from your local heath department.

They will have a list of certified labs......then just mail the test in.

About the city water.

It is not bacteria free.

It just has an "acceptable level" of bacteria.

That's def now what was said.. whatwas said is that they have the botles and the place to mail it into... not that they would do it for free... just that that's how you can get it to a lab to test it...
Yes, but you can't use other labs test bottles in other labs. And many tests requires different chemical additives/preservatives as well as time frame allowed. So, NO, don't think that a test bottle from a local health unit will be suitable for a fully equiped lab that tests for metals, enviros, toxins, gases, organic... will be accepted by that lab.
