Analysis for Lead in Drinking Water
The quality of our drinking water is of paramount importance to everyone, and public awareness of the issue of lead in drinking water has been magnified by recent events in Michigan. RJ Lee Group is offering two services for water testing for companies, schools, and residences in Pennsylvania and New York: an inexpensive kit for single residences and bulk testing prices for high volumes of samples.Why the RJ Lee Group Kit for Residences Over Those Offered by Retail Stores?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends analysis of at least 250 ml of drinking water for schools and child care facilities. Most retail kits that require sending a water sample to a laboratory provide a much smaller sample tube size. Retail kits that rely on paper test strips don't give the accuracy down to 1 parts per billion (1 ppb) that the advanced instrumentation at RJ Lee Group provides. The EPA 's action level is 15 ppb for public water systems.
What does the RJ Lee Group Kit to Test Lead in Drinking Water Include?
Residents in Pennsylvania and New York can receive a drinking water testing kit and lead analysis at the cost of $65. We'll ship the kit to you at no cost within three business days of receiving your order. You will need one kit per drinking water source (drinking fountain, cafeteria sink, etc.).
The kits are simple to use and include the following:
- 1 - Pair nitrile gloves
- 2 - 250 ml sampling bottles
- 1 - Plastic bag for sampling bottles
- Chain of Custody Form
Simply follow the directions, fill out the Chain of Custody form, ship it back to us or bring it to our Monroeville location between the hours of 8am - 5pm Monday through Friday. Please note: Samples should be received within 14 days of sample collection.
Once we receive your sample and paperwork, analysis takes five business days. You will be sent your test results through email at the conclusion.
