Website Tackles Water Safety, Environmental Concerns With Test Kits, Water
Filters and Reusable Bottles
MONROVIA, Calif., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Bottled or tap? That is the question. At least it is in the minds of consumers who fear the impact of bottled water on the environment, but aren't sure if their tap water is safe. Discover Testing has assembled a family of products on its website, http://www.discovertesting.com, in an effort to alleviate consumer concerns and help the environment at the same time.
-- The Watersafe-All-In-One test kit is an inexpensive, in-home testing
kit that can identify unsafe levels of eight common contaminants.
-- Brita filtration systems improve the taste and quality of tap water.
-- Refillable plastic bottles provide the convenience of grab-and-go
water, but without the environmental effect of bottled water.
"We feel that, under the right circumstances, tap water is not only safer for consumers, it's better for the environment," says Tom Round, vice president, Silver Lake Research Corporation. "And it's available to consumers at a fraction of the cost of bottled water."
As the most ingested substance worldwide, water is a common source of both acute and chronic illness. Long-term exposure to chemical contaminants can have serious and deadly effects. But while safety should be a concern, there are simple ways to check water quality, says Round. Retailing for $19.95, the Watersafe All-In-One test kit addresses eight common contaminants, including bacteria, lead, pesticides, nitrates, nitrites, chlorine, pH and hardness. The kit provides several individual tests that are easy to use and provide on-the-spot results.
And if consumers do find levels of certain contaminants out of the
desirable range -- or just dislike the taste of tap water -- an inexpensive
alternative to bottled water is
