My kids love the outdoors.
As soon as they finish their homework, they run to get on play clothes and out the door.
When they come inside, they grab a cup of water and get ready for dinner. They drink from the tap almost everyday. I wash their fruits and veggies. Wash my dishes. Never have I thought to test my water to make sure it was safe.
I didn’t think I had to.
I mean, shouldn’t every household have safe drinking water?
Have you taken the time to test the quality of your water?
I hadn’t and I had so many questions. Like, who do I call to come test it? What kinds of things would they test for?
Test Assured makes that process simple. They provide at home water testing kits. Each kit contains 10 tests for multiple water contaminants such as lead, bacteria, and pesticides.
I was a bit worried about what I was going to find. As a mother, I feared what kinds of things could possibly be in our water.
The kit contains step by step instructions on how to complete each test. Results take a matter of minutes to show up, except for the bacteria test which took 48 hours.
I made this a fun thing to do and the kids and I did it together as a “science experiment.” Hey, anything to get the kids excited!
After doing each of the tests, it was found that our water was safe for consumption. Thankfully. But as my mother used to say, “it’s better to be safe, than sorry.”
I think of instances like the issue in Flint where there were families without safe drinking water and if only there were people taking the time to test their drinking water beforehand, someone may have realized what was going on well before so many children and families fell ill.
I am glad that there are kits like this avaliable and are easy and convienent to use.
I want you to have the opportunity to test your drinking water at home. Test Assured has provided us with 2 at-home tests to giveaway!
