Ecoli Test Result

by Rajee

I have test the Drinking water sample in the Water testing Laboratory for Ecoli. The result says that Ecoli value is 22. What it means? and What the problems due to this? and what is the treatment to reduce the Ecoli in the Water.


Rajee, any E-coli levels above the value of 1 is considered unsafe to drink. Thus, right now you should boil your water before drinking.

You should contact your local water supplier to find out the best way to treat your water. I don't know if you get municipal water or well water. Typical treatment is with shock chlorination.

Even if treated, however, there is a good chance it will happen again. Thus, I highly recommend you consider investing in a home water filter system.

The best portable systems for disinfection and filtration are the Berkey water purifiers.
