Based on EPA/ETV Test Verified Chemistry:
The simple chemistry and procedures involved in the Arsenic Low-Range Quick™ Test Kit (the basis for how this test kit works) have undergone extensive review by experts in the EPA and received the distinguished honor of EPA/ETV Test Verified status.
This test DOES liberate gases that could pose health hazards if the test gets performed in a small, closed area. Although the amounts of gas generated ought not cause any issues, use safe testing practices by opening windows and performing testing in an area that gets good ventilation.
It always pays to err on the side of caution and safety when performing any type of testing.
How Arsenic Quick™ Test Kits Work:
Without getting too technical, inorganic arsenic present in the water sample gets converted to arsine gas by the zinc dust and tartaric acid. Then, the arsine gas reacts with other compounds contained in the test pad suspended at the top of the test vessel (plastic bottle) to create a color change on the test pad.
With only one simple test procedure (using 3 reagents), Arsenic Low-Range Quick™ makes it possible for anyone interested in testing for dissolved arsenic in water to do so -- without the need for complicatd laboratory equipment or specialized training.
The Arsenic Low-Range Quick™ test kit for arsenic in water works as well for water testing professional and service technician as it does for the average homeowner or student.
