It is extremely important to know what's in your drinking water, especially in a breakdown scenario. This is a quick and easy test that will make you feel more confident about the potability of your water.
Sometimes, you can get these kits from your town for free, only sometimes when they are gathering info. I'm thinking this would be good to store and test water in your house when no one is around to tell you if it's ok or not. Good for people who have wells also.
This is a must have product in any scenario. You need to be absolutely sure your water is clean of everything and this is the best way to make sure it is. In a disaster scenario, many small filters only can handle 20 gallons or so. Just incase you lose count, this test pack will tell you if the water is safe or not. Great for hiking/camping as well just incase you have to drink stream water.
An easily totable water testing kit
I like the idea of having this in each of our bug-out bags. They will save our health and peace of mind. The cost, however, is prohibitive!
Question on shelf life
Is there a shelf life for the watersafe test kit itself?
From The Ready Store:
As long as you keep the WaterSAFE Test Kit dry it should not have a shelf life.
expensive & only 1, for 1 time use
High Price for 1 teesting, only 1 testing per pack
