Water Quality Bleg

Hey Folks,

I am looking for some help on water quality testing, i.e.,
  • What off-the-shelf equipment is out there?
  • How much does it cost to buy? for each test?
  • How much training does the operator need?
  • Is there a one-shot tester for home use?
  • How long does each test take? How many contaminents does it test for?
  • Can the equipment be moved? Used in the developing world?
Thanks for any help!

Bottom Line: Don't drink the water if you don't know what's in it!
