About Allora Water Test Kits

About Us

about_img

At Allora Water Testing Kits we have been passionate about the quality our Australian drinking water for more than 15 years.

We started this business several years after finding that our family suffered on-going illnesses due to poor drinking water which had been contaminated by our local environment.

After spending thousands of dollars on tests we employed the services of our local plumber who suggested a basic water test kit which provided us with the most amazing data. We acted on the information that we had and within a matter of months found that we no longer suffered from the odd unexplained illnesses and found the whole experience a complete mess when it came to asking others for help.

At this point we decided to provide our local community with test strips from our initial purchase and were amazed to find that more than 3 out of 10 tests resulted in failed quality tests.

A few years later with the assistance of speialists in the water testing industry we devised a cost effective water test kit with the ability to test 14 perimeters 100 times in a two year period which did not limit us to using many test kits and only several times per year which can lead to inaccurate information as your water quality can vary depending on the environment which changes daily.

With the knowledge that we have accumulated we continue to look it new cost effective solutions in order to help ensure that all drinking water can be tested at a fraction of the costs normally involved.
