QUESTION: How do I purchase a lead test kit? 04 Jan 2008 NSW, Australia

How do I purchase a lead tester kit?

ANSWER: 04 Jan 2008

Dear Marcus,

If it is only paint or PVC that you wish to test for lead and you are happy with a colour change test, then you can try purchasing a Lead Check kit from any good hardware store or paint trade centre. Because they are not terrific at stocking these kits, we always suggest you phone around your local stores to locate one before setting out to purchase it. See "Stockists of Lead Spot Test Kits - Australia, in postcode order"

If you need to test soil or dust or water or if you would prefer laboratory analysis with a number and unit for the result, in accordance with various standards such as the Toy standard, Ceramic ware standard or Lead Paint Management standard, then you are better off to buy one of our kits. Please see Do It Yourself Lead Safe Test Kits and decide whether you need 2 samples or 8 samples and contact us to purchase a kit. It is best done by telephone unless you are happy to provide your credit card details by email. We can ensure security once we receive the email. We just need the type of card, number, expiry, name on card, postal address, best email address and best phone number to contact you by.


Yours Sincerely

Elizabeth O'Brien
