The Best Value in Water Testing Kits by a Professional Laboratory

Do You Know What’s In Your Tap Water?

Are You Aware Of The Bacteria, Pesticides & Chemicals That May Be Coming From Your Tap?

We Offer Several Cost-Effective Test Kits Below

Bacteria Results Within 48 Hours!


Each year, up to 7 million Americans become sick from contaminated drinking water…sometimes it can even be lethal. Pollution, old pipes, and outdated treatment threaten the quality of tap water.

You need to find out for yourself if you should be concerned about your tap water and what you can do to protect yourself and your family. The potential for water contamination should not taken lightly.

The best way to do this is to order a water test kit from a reputable water testing laboratory.

In June 2003, a study was conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) concerning the quality of drinking water in 19 U.S. cities. The study found that pollution and deteriorating, out-of-date plumbing can deliver drinking water that might pose health risks to some residents—and they predicted that, unless steps were taken immediately, the situation would only get worse.

According to the NRDC, “In the long term, we all have reason to be concerned about pollution in tap water. The water in many cities contains pollutants that are carcinogenic and that, over time, could cause cancer. That’s why we all should try to get cities to remove these contaminants out of tap water as soon as possible.”

“But, My Water Company Treats My Tap Water to Eliminate Problems”

Unfortunately, efforts to treat water can also result in new health threats:

Chlorination of drinking water does virtually eliminate most disease or bacterial contamination, but it also creates traces of several toxic by-products in the water such as:

  • Chloroform
  • Chloramines
  • Trihalomethanes
  • Other Chlorinated Organic Compounds

Government agencies have decided the benefits are worth the risks, but alternatives are available in many instances.

“What if You Have Your Own Well?”

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency…

“If you have your own well, you are responsible for making sure that your water is safe to drink. Private wells should be tested annually for at least nitrate and bacteria to detect contamination problems early.”

In addition to an annual test, The National Ground Water Association recommends that well owners test the water:

  • any time there is a change in the taste, odor, or appearance of the well water, or if a problem occurs such as a broken well cap or a new contamination source;
  • if family members or house guests have recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness;
  • if an infant is living in the home; or if you wish to monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment equipment.

The Hit List of Contaminants

What are the contaminants that put us at risk? The EPA categorizes the culprits as follows:

  • Organic Chemicals are Pesticides, Solvents, and other chemicals that seep into ground water supplies. Some are known as volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) because they may change or evaporate, for example. Most are linked with cancer and/or nervous system, liver and kidney disorders.
  • In the organic group, Trihalomethanes (THMs) are sometimes created after water has left a treatment plant, when chlorine reacts with microscopic organic and other decaying animal and plant matter. A substance that is produced from this process is chloroform, a suspected carcinogen.
  • Inorganic Chemicals include dangerous metals such as Mercury, Lead and Arsenic, Sodium, Nitrates, and a variety of natural minerals. Some inorganics are associated with a variety of health problems. Lead is known to cause brain damage and is highly toxic to infants and pregnant women, even in minute doses. It usually comes from lead water pipes, old pipe solder, or lead-based brass fixtures.

Action You Can Take to Protect Your Family

So, what can you do to find out just how safe your tap water is? Test it.

Now, you could go out and buy a home test kit for a few of the possible contaminants.

Unfortunately, you are limited in the number of contaminants you can test for with these do-it-yourself test kits.

Furthermore, it is difficult to trust the reliability of these results. You can get false-positives or false-negatives because of the lack of lab-based procedures needed to accurately handle and test the sample.

Ultimately, the only way to really know whether you have a problem or not is to have a professional water testing laboratory test your tap water for you. They have the professional staff, procedures and the calibrated instruments to give you an accurate assessment of the what you are actually consuming. .

You could call a local water testing lab, assuming you have one nearby. Have them come out, draw a water sample, take it back to the lab and test it for you, but the cost can be prohibitive.

Or, you can order a water test from a professional laboratory that sends you a kit containing all the necessary vials that you fill with your tap water and send back to the lab. Because you provide on-site collection of the sample, the cost will most definitely be less than having lab personnel come to your home.

Choosing a Professional Lab to Test Your Water

Here are the key things to look for in determining which lab to order your test kit from:

  • How many contaminants are being tested? There should be a minimum of 100+ parameters.
  • Does the company you are ordering your test kit from actually own the lab that will be doing the testing or are they subcontracting the work out and are essentially marketing companies?
  • Is the lab utilizing EPA testing methods?
  • Does the test kit you order include a postage-paid return mailing label included in the cost of the test?

About e-WaterTest

The e-WaterTest staff has been testing water in our own laboratory for over 50 years. Our laboratory staff is made up of professional chemists, engineers, and microbiologists who have over 80 years of combined laboratory instrumentation, equipment, water supply and treatment experience.

We analyze your tap water utilizing EPA testing methods on equipment designed and calibrated to provide accurate results by University-educated professionals—not by unqualified personnel using test strips or colorimetric kits, which is how some mail-order testing services do this critical testing.

When you order your test kit, we send you a test kit containing everything you need, including instructions, water vials, and a return shipping box and label. Once your water has been tested, after approximately twenty business days from when we receive your water samples, we email the results to you. After getting the report, you will see the results for each contaminant tested, and whether these results meet acceptable guidelines.

You now know whether you have a problem with your drinking water; and if you do, you know exactly what the problem is so you can take appropriate steps to rectify it.

Here’s what some customers have to say:

“Thank you for all your help. You folks are wonderful!”

Robyn M.

“I wanted to let you know that I truly appreciate your service especially compared to local labs in my area that took forever to just complete a few of the tests that your company offers. I would highly recommend your services to others who are in the market for water testing.”

Jessica R.

“Thanks for the good service, I’m glad the test turned out that way, chemical contaminates were a main concern of mine, we are only a few miles from the Fairfield County land fill and the Buckeye aquifer runs through this area. I didn’t know how well they had the bottom sealed. I’ll be using your company in the future and others have asked me about your services, thanks again.”

There are other mail-order companies offering what looks like our water testing services, but they outsource the actual testing to labs they do not own. They are, in fact, only internet marketing companies.

Check their list of tests to make sure they are not duplicating contaminant names just to artificially inflate the total number of tests performed. 

They will also inflate the number of parameters tested by listing a compound as one contaminant and then list the compound's components as additional parameters. They want you to only look at their test count and not check to see if it is really accurate.

Also, check their pricing. Some marketing companies will offer discounts and then recover it by charging you for return shipping. 

We include return shipping!

Most marketing companies spend a great deal of money on advertising, claiming that they have 30,000+ clients. Really!! These entities have only been in business for several years, some only a few months. There is no way they have had that many customers in such a short period of time. And, to top it off, they don't even own or operate the lab that tests their client's drinking water! Most of them only give you a toll-free number to call and you have no idea where they are located or who actually controls the testing process.

Check out e-Watertest's credentials!

We have built our reputation over the past 30 years by being straight forward with our customers—you deserve nothing less considering the importance of trusting the company that tests your drinking water. All of our testing is done in our own lab, so we control the entire testing process!!
