Sample Collection

  1. PRIOR TO COLLECTION – Water should be used the day prior to collection, but then allowed to sit in the pipes for 6-18 hours. The sample collection is performed on the first water used after the 6-18 hour period has passed. For most people, collection is most easily accomplished first thing in the morning prior to ANY use of water. This includes the flushing of toilets, etc. The kitchen faucet is a good tap for the lead and copper collection.
  2. Fill Container 1 with the first draw from the Kitchen Sink. Label bottle with “First Draw.”
