When you think about emergency water, most likely you think about acquisition, purification, and filtering processes. I know that I do. What is missing from this equation, though, is testing. Can we assume the water coming out of the kitchen faucet is safe to drink? And what about well water or home filtered water? Wouldn’t you like to know about the lead, bacteria, pesticide, iron, and copper content of your water?
These questions lead me to the topic for today: testing your drinking water using a home test kit.
