  • THE KIT

    • To take the water sample, run your tap for several minutes to clear the water from your pipes (about five minutes is sufficient) and fill the provided water bottle. Make sure the lid is secure, a piece of tape over the lid is preferred to keep it from coming loose in transit. Double check the information on the sample submittal form and make any necessary corrections. Use the bubble wrap sleeves to pack the water bottle, then place the bottle and submittal form back in the box. Securely tape the box closed for shipping, then place the return address label and return postage over the previous labels on the box. Drop the package off at your local post office.
