Hi,

My daughter is in the 7th grade and her science teacher recommended your
website as a place to get information for a water-related science fair
idea/kit. My daughter wants to test our own well water against a popular
bottled water and possibly also against the school water sample to see which
is the most healthful.

However, she isn't sure how to pose that as a scientific question for her
fair. Also, which kit makes the most sense if she wants to test 2 or 3
samples. How does her idea incorporate an independent variable or state a
hypothesis?

Can you please help suggest a kit which would provide the testing materials
she needs, as well as help point her in the direction of what types of
questions make the most sense to be answered for a science fair? Since her
whole class won't be doing the test, it will just be for her own samples -
and those are the three drinking samples she came up with.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated; once I hear from you about which kit makes
sense, I'll order immediately. I'd help her more, but science is not my
strong suit.

Thanks so much,

Hello,

I have a lot of helpful information on the website. www.sciencefaircenter.com
Scroll down the main page and you will find
the center column is an outline for a science fair and the right hand
column are some helpful pointers for non science parents.

We have several kits that could apply to your daughters idea, but it
might be much better to chat about these over the phone so you can
choose one that also meets the teachers requirements.

Give me a call and we can chat 206-440-3008, please leave your number
so I can call you back...

QUESTION?
I'm hoping you could answer a couple of questions.
What would be a good range for alkalinity, dissolved metals and
hardness in city drinking water? Is there a level that these would be
best for drinking water? What pH is the best for drinking water?
Thank you so much for your help. We tested 11 different waters and got
some great data with your test kits!

ANSWER...
Hello,

Sounds like your deep into the project and making good progress. It would be much easier for you to give me a call so we can chat about your questions. I'll be around the phone later this afternoon and most of the day tomorrow.

We ship out the test kits by US Mail usually within 1 day ---- Priority Mail (2-4days) or Express Mail (1-2days).
Drinking Water Basic Tests

Each water sample is tested for this Set of parameters: pH, Alkalinity, Water Hardness, Nitrate, Nitrite, Free Chlorine and Total Chlorine. (7 tests per set).

Good experiment for science fair project that combines chemical and bacteria testing. Chemical testing only takes a few minutes per sample. The bacteria sample grows for 2 days before reading.
