SenSafe® Water Metals Check (Eco-Pack)
Water Metals Check can readily determine if your water has heavy metals present (Cadmium, Cobalt, Copper, Iron (ferrous), Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Zinc and other +2 valence metals. This basic , quick test uses a very sensitive non-specific indicator that detects many common heavy metals of concern. Ideally, the heavy metal test should read <10 ppb; this confirms that your system is functioning properly when testing filtered water. Additionally, bottled water should read <10 ppb. Note: This test is meant to be a screening tool and will NOT specify levels of each metal present, only total +2 metal content.
Contains 30 individually wrapped tests in our new environmentally friendly Eco-Pack!

Why test for Heavy Metals?
This test detects dissolved +2 Metals (Cadmium, Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Zinc, etc.). Metals can cause unwanted staining, odor, or taste in drinking water. As trace elements, some heavy metals are essential to maintain good health. However, at higher concentrations, they can lead to poisoning. Most metals are naturally occurring in ground water and can be removed through some types of filtration. Water flow in a distribution system can be reduced due to metal build up.
