Per the request of several men and women currently serving in the United States Armed Forces and other branches of the United States Government, we will begin posting possible alternate products for popular (established) NSN’s (National Stock Numbers) related to water quality testing.

Note: We have found that the products suggested above meet or exceed the specifications of the original NSN item. This does not mean, though, that they may be substituted in place of the NSN item on a Government Contract. We provided the above information as possible sources of water quality testing products for consideration in future Contracts/Bids only.
