The EZ Coliform Cult is an easy, fast, and effective presence/absence test for total coliform and E.coli in water.

Includes 1 bottle for one test.

Coliform Testing:

The media will turn blue-green if coliform bacteria is present, or will remain clear-yellow if coliform bacteria is absent.

For 24 hour results for coliform bacteria, warm the sample to no more than 95*F for 24 hours.

If kept at 77*F (typical room temperature) the test will take 48 hours. Warming the sample is not required and does not affect the accuracy of the test, only the timing. If coliform bacteria is detected, the water should be disinfected (or not consumed at all) regardless of whether E. coli is specifically present.

Order Optional Hand-Held UV Light for E.Coli Testing

E. coli (fecal bacteria) growth is confirmed by blue fluorescence under UV light (not included, see option above to purchase).

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends all private water systems be tested at least once per year for coliform bacteria.

Coliform bacteria live in top soil, on vegetation and in surface water. There are different strains or species of coliform bacteria. The type that are found in the intestines of warm-blooded animals and fecal matter are called E.coli. Some strains of coliform bacteria can easily live for long periods in soil and water and may be carried into well casings by insects. Coliform bacteria are the most commonly encountered contaminants seen in private water systems.
