Pre-order: Freshwater Explorer Testkit 2021 Edition!


For pre-order! We’re launching our next version of our Freshwater Explorer Testkit for delivery by mid-June (and for the French version, by the end of June). 

We designed this kit for people of all ages, and this year, we’re making it even easier to use and carry! While it’s a new bag, it remains true to the Water Rangers protocol. It also comes with a new and improved version of our much loved field guide!

No previous testing experience required. Our field guides and training videos include step-by-step directions on how to use the different tests, understand the results, and record your observations in our app. This kit is a great way for small organizations and individuals to gather data on their lakes and rivers, without breaking the bank.

You can also add your own custom design for an additional fee. These should be in a single colour as a simple line graphic. We will create a mockup for your approval!

Bulk discounts will be automatically applied to your cart. 5% off 10 or more. 10% off 20 or more.


Customize your testkit with your logo

You can add a simple, one colour logo to your testkit! We will let you know if your logo can work and send you a mockup of how it will look for your approval.
