EPA Says Water Test Kits Are Not Endorsed Despite Logo Use

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WTAT-TV) — We are still waiting to hear from a water kit company using the EPA logo on it’s packaging.

Many of you have told us that you used home kits to test your own water.

H2O OK has not returned our calls or emails.

The EPA tells us “The EPA has not evaluated DIY kits and note that the kits do not always assess drinking water contaminants in the same manner as EPA’s approved methods.”

We are still trying to get clarification on what the manufacturer meant when they put the terms “EPA Standards” and “pesticides” and the packaging.
