PESTICIDE IN WATER TEST KIT
A recent report of the World Health Organization estimated that there are one million pesticide
poisonings, resulting in 20,000 deaths each year. Estimates are that nearly one-half of the ground and
well water in the United States is, or is in danger of being, seriously contaminated with pesticides.
WHAT ARE PESTICIDES?
Pesticides are toxic chemicals that are widely used to control weeds, insects, and other unwanted plants or
animals in agriculture, industry, and residential settings. Their effectiveness, however, has caused considerable
pollution. Atrazine and simazine are two of the most commonly used pesticides in the United States and
both have been found in surface and ground water at toxic levels.
HOW DO YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH PESTICIDES?
Pesticide contamination of drinking water is suspected to be widespread throughout the United States.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you may ingest, inhale, or absorb potentially harmful
chemicals from drinking pesticide contaminated water, eating foods prepared with contaminated water or
breathing in fumes while showering, cooking or washing.
WHAT CAN PESTICIDES DO TO YOU?
While pesticides have different affects on various people, even low level exposure can cause serious health
problems. Some people suffer a variety of effects which may include headaches and skin rashes. Long-term
exposure from inhalation, ingestion and/or skin absorption can damage internal organs, cause chromosome
damage, cancer and death. Fetuses, babies and children are suspected to be more vulnerable than adults.
HOW DO YOU FIND OUT IF YOU HAVE A PESTICIDE PROBLEM?
To find out if pesticides are a problem in your home or office, you must test. The PRO-LAB® Professional
Pesticides in Water Test Kit is the most accurate instant pesticides test available to the consumer.
The NON-TOXIC laboratory grade test strip, when moistened with water, provides an effective and
reliable test method.

PESTICIDES IN WATER TEST KIT
The PRO-LAB® Pesticides in Water Test Kit (patented) contains everything you need to find out if your water
contains unsafe levels of the most commonly used pesticides atrazine and simazine. Each test is calibrated to
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Maximum Contaminant Level for atrazine 3ppb (parts per billion)
and simazine 4ppb (parts per billion).
Note: read all directions before starting the test. Do not use on hot water. Do not open the foil pouch until
immediately prior to use, exposure to air damages the unused test. Do not re-use any part of the test kit.
DIRECTIONS
1. Open the foil pouch and take out all of the contents. Each test kit contains one (1) pesticide test strip, one
(1) sample vial, and one (1) pipette/dropper, as well as a desiccant packet that preserves the test strip.
The desiccant should be discarded once the foil pouch is opened.
2. Using the pipette/eyedropper, place five drops of the water sample you are testing into the sample vial.
Then place the vial on a flat surface. -
3. Place the pesticide test strip into the sample vial with the arrows pointing down for exactly ten (10) minutes.
Do not disturb the test strip or vial during this time. Blue lines will start to appear on the test strip, indicating
that the test is working.
4. Take the test strip out of the vial and read the results exactly at the end of the ten (10) minute period.
Results may change after the initial ten (10) minutes.
READING THE RESULTS 5
Results are determined by comparing the darkness of the two (2) blue lines on the test strip.
Negative Results: If the bottom line (next to number 1) is darker than the top line (next to number 2).
Positive Results: If the top line (next to number 2) is darker than the bottom line (next to number 1)or lines are
equally dark.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you only see one line, next to number 1, the test is negative. If no lines appear, or both lines
are very light, the test did not run properly and the result is invalid.
INTERPRETING THE RESULTS
Negative: If the results of the test is NEGATIVE, your water sample contains 2ppb (parts per billion) or less of
atrazine, or 3ppb (parts per billion) or less of simazine.
Positive: If the result of the test is POSITIVE, your water sample contains 3ppb (parts per billion) or more of
atrazine, or 4ppb (parts per billion) or more of simazine. If your test strip shows a positive result, your water
sample may contain pesticides at at toxic level. Drinking water contaminated with atrazine or simazine at
these levels may be dangerous to your health. Take the appropriate action.
Pesticide testing should be conducted a least annually or whenever you suspect a potential contamination.
