  1. What is the best Water Testing Kits we can use to measure the bacterial growth and oxygen.

  2. If you are looking at bacterial growth, I would test for total coliform, standard plate count, and may be nuisance bacteria.

    Oxygen - this would have to be field tested.

    If you are looking for the rate of Oxygen Consumption - I would look at the 5 day BOD or 20 day BOD test or a COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand Test)
