Borrow a testkit

You can borrow testkits from locations in Ottawa and Val-des-Monts.

Testkits are a fun way to learn about water and bring communities and families together. Our testkits don’t require you to take samples to a lab: the tests are done right away, and you get the results right away.

Our lending program lets you dip your toe in before you take the plunge to take on a complete testing program. Learn more about why water testing is important. Want a kit to keep? You can buy your own kit in our store.

Choose what day you would like to borrow and what day you can return the kit. Kits must be returned on time (late returns will incur a penalty of $5/day. We have few testkits, so in order to make it fair for those wishing to borrow the kit next, we need to be strict!) and in good working order.

We provide you with a field guide, video and a quick start guide so that you can get started and teach your friends and family out on the water. No previous experience is necessary!
