I tested samples of water and I don't totally understand what the results
mean. The highest was 800-1000 Colony forming units of aerobic bacteria and
the lowest was 0. If aerobic bacteria is detected in drinking water does it
mean that the water is dangerous? What is the difference between total
microbe and total coliform tests? Thank you
