In many areas of the third world, drinking water quality cannot be relied upon. It is vital to be able to screen water sources for potability to prevent the spread of water borne infection. The World Health Organisation publishes guidelines for drinking water quality. A section of a summary table included as part of these guidelines is given (below) for the maximum tolerable concentration for both chemical and microbiological contaminants. The Lovibond® potable water check test kit enables an effective screen of water supplies for these key indicators of faecal and agricultural contamination to help in the assessment of general quality and potability.

The tests are simple to use and no operator training is required. However, it is important that the operator carries out all tests in a precise and competent manner, with due consideration for cleanliness at all times. Tests have been carefully chosen so that they can be used in the more rural global locations, where access to laboratory facilities is limited.
