Protect the Health of Guests and Tourists


Regularly test your water for harmful bacteria





Ecotourism is a booming industry in many parts of the world. Millions of tourists travel to remote locations to learn about and protect natural environments, and sustain the well-being of local people.

However, ecotourism venues are vulnerable to unsafe water quality. Ecotourism water quality is susceptible to health risks, especially in remote, semi-developed or developing areas.

Water is not always tested for quality or appropriately treated. Reliance on tourism advice websites may avoid mentioning or even mask occurrences of waterborne illnesses and outbreaks.

Guest health should be of primary importance in ecotourism. Ecotourism venues and staff are responsible for ensuring safe water in their facilities.

To prevent industry damage and liability, ecotourism staff must routinely test water for quality and take appropriate corrective actions.

Anyone can use Aquagenx test kits with little training. They provide color-match test results that are easy to interpret.
