NOTICE: SHELF LIFE
Kits expire 6 months from the time of
We don't know beyond 6 months if the tests will be valid. For
this reason, the kits are considered expired if not returned
within 6 months of purchase. Sorry, we cannot exchange expired
kits for fresh ones. When analyzing old kits, test
data will be qualified (noted as suspect on the lab report).
After October 31, 2017, we will no longer accept expired kits.
100% of the purchase price will be
refunded if returned unopened and unused within
30 days. Once the kit box is opened, it
becomes "used", and is unsellable due to potential
contamination of the sample bottles. Buyer
is responsible for return shipping.
Kit180 packs up to 243 tests (a minimum of 223
individually targeted tests plus up to 20 "Tentatively Identified
Compounds - TICs) in one simple to use kit, combining everything
in our Kit90 Drinking Water Test Kit plus VOCs. VOCs are
a common contaminant, many of which are quite toxic,
mutagenic and carcinogenic. They're found in fuels,
industrial cleaners and solvents, chemicals, pharmaceutical
precursors, disinfectant byproducts, fracking, and horizontal
drilling. Very fast testing with very good coverage of the
most common and many uncommon contaminants.
This Kit comes with a "How do they do that?" price,
quality, service and turnaround
time, but the truth is, our Kit180 is better, cheaper, and faster.
Similar kits elsewhere cost $200 or more and take 3-6 weeks,
while the cheapest are around $130 and don't have nearly
the coverage and take longer too. There's even a competitor
who accuses us of losing money on this kit. What a
Concerned about "other" contaminants?
Our VOC Tentatively Identified Compounds (TICs) procedure
allows most VOC chemicals that aren't on our target analyte
list to be tentatively identified and roughly quantified
by computerized searching for the TIC in the
National Institute of Science & Technology
electron ionization mass spectral library of 242,477 unique compounds. We find
and report TIC's in just over 2% of the samples we analyze.

Do you really need testing equipment costing
millions to test your water? The USEPA thinks so, and is
why they haven't granted certification for the D.I.Y. test
kits you see everywhere. Don't be fooled and don't settle
for anything less than a professional USEPA certified drinking
What Do I Get?
an email with tracking info when your Kit ships. Shipment will be by
USPS Priority Mail, the
same day of payment, or not later than next-business day. USPS claims
2-3 day delivery to anywhere in the United States however our experience
is 1-7 days.
get in the U.S. Mail everything needed to collect (1) water sample along
with return packaging and prepaid, pre-addressed Priority Mail postage. The package is small enough
to fit into most mailboxes.
get a second email when your sample arrives at our laboratory.
a third email containing your Lab Report within 5 business days
after we receive your water sample. Do not expect a lightweight, dumbed-down
spreadsheet or pictogram, this is a real laboratory report. It contains all your lab data, including who ran the test, when
they ran the test, how they ran the test, the limits of detection, and any problems or issues
with the test. Test results that exceeds recommended levels will be
noted. Your Drinking Water Laboratory Report
your water to U.S. EPA regulations and guidelines, as well as comparing
your results to our huge laboratory database of water test results -
making it easy to spot problems. It also includes explanations and treatment,
Most importantly, you'll
get peace of mind knowing your water is safe. But it's not uncommon
that we discover water problems. Don't take the risk.
(instructions are also included in the kit)
Plan ahead! Some tests are best analyzed quickly, so
try to collect the sample early in the week to avoid weekend transit.
Place the refrigerant pack in your freezer the night before sampling
Select a faucet normally used for drinking water.
To test the source water, run water for 3-5 minutes. To better represent
what you're drinking, collect water from the first draw.
Remove bottles and uncap. Don't mix up caps and bottles.
Don't rinse out bottles (one bottle contains nutrients
for the bacteria tests). Fill the small glass bottles completely
full. Invert to check for air. If you can see an air bubble,
remove the cap and add more water. Fill the plastic bottles about
˝inch from the top and cap tightly.
Place bottles back in the tray and reassemble with
the ice pack in between the two glass bottles.
Insert the box into the Ziploc bag and zip it closed.
Fill out the yellow Information Form completely and
Place everything into the prepaid insulated envelope
and drop it in the mail.
