Inoculating Water with Thermotolerant Coliforms?

Hi All,

I'm looking for advice on how to reliably inoculate water with thermotolerant coliforms (preferably E. coli), for the purpose of quality control testing the ceramic filters that my organisation, Abundant Water, makes and distributes across Laos for treating water.

I am specifically after a good starter culture (tried horse poo and nasty canal water already, not enough coliforms) to work with. Is there a commercially available starter culture available or if not which animals faeces would be the best starting point??

Many thanks!

Mike
