Silver Lake Research Unveils Watersafe(R) Well Water Test Kit
Date:4/21/2008

Available Online at DiscoverTesting.com, Test Kit Developed in Response to

Consumer Demand for Water Safety

MONROVIA, Calif., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Silver Lake Research unveils its newest Watersafe product this week, addressing consumer concerns regarding private well water. Available now at DiscoverTesting.com, the Watersafe Well Water Test Kit tests for ten contaminants with easy-to-use, at-home results, most of which can be completed in minutes. Providing professional, lab-quality results, the test kit retails for $24.95.

The Watersafe Well Water Test Kit tests for bacteria, lead, pesticides, nitrates, nitrites, iron, copper, chlorine, pH and hardness. Each test comes with detailed instructions and all but the bacteria test yield results within ten minutes (the bacteria test takes 48-hours).

According to Tom Round, vice president, business development for Silver Lake Research, an estimated ten million American households have private wells. "Water quality is a hot issue right now and when it comes to private wells, the responsibility lies with the individual," says Round. "Well water presents additional threats our existing products don't screen for, so we developed a new product specifically for consumers with private wells."

Round cites several facts and sources that led to the creation of the Watersafe Well Water Test Kit.

-- In 1999-2000, the Center for Disease Control attributed 26 percent of

drinking water related sickness to private well water sources.

-- The CDC estimates that E. coli bacteria causes 73,000 cases of

infection and 61 deaths per year in the United States.

-- Lead from old pipes and fixtures can make its way into drinking water,

potentially causing systemic and developmental problems. An estimated

one million U.S. children under the age of six have excessive lead in

their blood.

-- Pesticides have been discovered in every large watershed in the U.S.

-- The Environmental Protection Agency says ground water contamination has

been found in all 50 states. The agency reminds consumers that private

drinking water supplies are not subject to EPA standards and do not

receive the same expert oversight that public water supplies do.

-- The National Ground Water Association advises well owners to test their

water annually for bacteria, nitrites and nitrates, particularly if

there is evidence of gastrointestinal illness or an infant living in

the home.
