Disinfection of drinking water is one of the major public health advances of the 20th century, however, the disinfectants themselves can react with naturally occurring materials in the water to form unintended byproducts which may pose health risks. A major challenge for water suppliers is balancing the risks from microbial pathogens and disinfection byproducts. Contaminates are in our water supply, some not regulated or adequately controlled, posing immediate health problems. People turn on their taps to drink, shower, bathe, cook, wash dishes and clothing, assuming it is safe. Bacterial contamination causes severe digestive problems, fever, nausea, diarrhea and sometimes even death. According to the EPA, total coliform and E. coli bacteria testing is recommended twice a year. Fecal coliform bacteria are mostly found in drinking water that comes from private wells and small water systems. This is partly because private water supplies, small rural public water supplies and private wells are not required by law to be tested. The PRO-LAB comes with an Optional Lab Analysis. On the petri dish the test will show columns - if you have 0 - 5 columns indicates clean water. Over 5 columns you should send in for full analysis, this kit will need to be mailed inside the included pre-stamped envelope to Pro Lab Inc's. There is a charge of $30 for the testing. Pro Lab Inc guarantees the fastest turnaround time in the laboratory testing industry!
From the Manufacturer
This bacteria in water test kit offers two (2) types of analytical methods. The first method simply involves counting the number of colonies that are growing on the petri dish. The second method (optional) requires sending the petri dish to Pro-Lab for a more detailed analysis ($30 lab fee required), which will identify the bacteria present in your water. Safe and easy to use.

Thats what the description reads. I believe it should say Coliform OR E. Coli bacteria - because the directions simply say if you have less than 5 colonies it is probably safe and if more you should filter or take the optional $30 lab test (plus overnight postage).
The way I see it only way to know which you have (coliform or E coli) is to send it in - so that is a VERY misleading statement.
For those of you expecting 'professional' - sorry. It just shows you that you have stuff. After studying this subject I know that there are dangerous coliform, and benign coliform. Again - only by sending it in can you tell (maybe) - and again the wording is vague which may be misleading:
>Optional lab analysis is available, which identifies the exact count and type of bacteria present.
Type of bacteria? The lab I finally ended up using said there are too many type of coliforms, so I suspect this means it will tell you if it is E coli or ANY of hundreds of coliforms - I didnt bother calling to verify. I cant bother with a company that cant be straight up front.
If you are OK with just knowing if there is ANYTHING in the water - go for it. It does that.
If you want to learn if your water is bacteria free or not, I recommend using the Pro-Lad test kit.
