Does adding water to a urine drug screen effect the results.

Resolved Question:

Does adding water to a urine drug screen effect the results. I think my teenager did this and I want to make sure the results where not affected.

Thank You

No- that would not likely effect the result-

It dilutes the urine, but the tests should still detect a drug that is in it.
