Get Proactive for Better Drinking Water with DIY Safe Home® Test Kits

It’s easy and convenient to gain confidence in drinking water quality for healthy, active lifestyles.

Madison, IN (January 8, 2019)— As water is a basic daily requirement, health concerns about clean drinking water have Americans turning to bottled water in order to assure they are drinking clean and safe water. According to the Beverage Daily, bottled water is now the number one drink, growing 7% in 2017 for a total of 13.7 billion gallons per year.[i] Yet it is questionable whether bottled water is safer or healthier than tap water.[ii] In fact, tap water is tested under EPA regulations and bottled water is regulated by the FDA. [iii] The USEPA requires cities to test their water supplies regularly, for contaminants. With an active, on-the-go lifestyle, it is essential to trust that drinking water is safe and meets health standards. To know what is in your water, the surest and safest way is to test it. EnviroTestKits® (ETK is a Division of Environmental Laboratories, Inc.) issues peace of mind to us all by testing the quality of water (city water, well water or bottled water) with a platform of Do-It-Yourself water quality test kits under the brand name of, Safe Home®. These kits provide immediate test results, regarding the quality of your drinking water.
