COPPER INFORMATION

Copper is a poisonous metal that can cause long-term health and behavioural problems. Drinking water contaminated with copper can cause serious health problems. There is no safe level of lead. Children under six years of age and pregnant women are at the highest risk. Ingesting high copper levels can cause sickness, including vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, and headaches. Exposure to high copper levels over a long period can cause kidney damage, liver damage and consumption of extremely high levels of copper can cause death.

Our Copper Test Kit has been designed to detect low levels of copper in water.

  • 0.05 mg/L
  • 0.10 mg/L
  • 0.20 mg/L
  • 0.40 mg/L
  • 1.00 mg/L
  • 2.00 mg/L

The Australian Guidelines suggest that 2mg/L of copper is safe.

  • 1mg/L for aesthetics to prevent taste and staining problems
  • 2mg/L to prevent any health-related problems

LEAD INFORMATION

Lead is a poisonous metal that can cause long-term health and behavioural problems. Drinking water contaminated with lead can cause serious health problems. There is no safe level of lead. Children under six years of age and pregnant women are at the highest risk.

Coming in contact with too much lead can damage the brain, kidneys, and nervous system. In children, lead can also slow development or cause learning, behaviour, and hearing problems.

Unlike most other test kits, the Lead Test Kit has been designed to detect extremely low lead levels in drinking water.

  • 0.005mg/L = SAFE
  • 0.015mg/L = SLIGHTLY OVER
  • 0.030 mg/L = NOT SAFE
  • 0.050 mg/L = NOT SAFE

The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines have defined the ‘safe’ level of lead fit for consumption as 0.01 mg per litre. The figure was recently lowered from 0.05 mg per litre.

Store this test kit in a cool, dry place. Exposure to sunlight and moisture will degrade the test pads.
