I’m at a cross road here as to weather I should edit to remove these test findings so as not to mislead anyone, this was not my intention but if I remove then it will leave others in the dark as to what this was all about, so I have opted to leave the post as it is and add a disclaimer that I’m by no means an expert in this area, comments have been raised to point out that the tester has limitations, the test are unsupported and I wouldn’t base my findings solely to be safe.
I purchased the zero water counter top filtering system and along came with it was a water quality and toxicity tester (meter), My tap water straight from the kitchen spigot reads 170 toxins but once filtered it’s zeroed out,
On my beer mugs I’ve been lining the inside of them with a 30 min two part epoxy that I purchase from a local hobby store called Hobby Town USA the epoxy is a Great Planes product, air plane modelers use it for firewalls and such. it had dawned on me that I had this tester and what better way to test the epoxy for toxin free then by using the water tester, the pictures below will demonstrate the test methods I used, if there were any sort of toxins what so ever the meter would pick it up.
The first picture shows the Zero Water filter system, a mug full of tap water straight from the faucet and the tester.
The second picture shows the the reading of 171, taken from the water already in the mug from the faucet, these are the toxins already in the water from the city,
The third picture shows a 0.0 reading from the water out of the Zero Water filtering system that had been sitting in the mug for a couple hours.
