Re: Drinking water test kit suggestions?

We attach an activated carbon filter to the fill hose, which gets out odors, chlorine, radon, and other chemicals. It won't reduce bacteria, so we don't drink it. In fact, the system aboard might contain bacteria. We wash, brush teeth and will cook with it, if boiled. To properly test for bacteria, the sample has to be stored correctly and immediate tested. To a mail in exercise. We drink bottled water, stored in gallon jugs.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
