Default Inconclusive Drug Test

I just got results from a drug-test and it was inconclusive. I tried a Google search and a bunch of links came up on how to beat a drug test.

Here is my issue. I haven't taken anything.. ever. Not even once. Not that they're testing for it, I don't even drink.

How can my results have come back inclusive? Could too much water cause it? I do drink a lot in a day.

You must mean inconclusive. Large amounts of water can certainly cause this. Ask to be re-tested and explain you consume a lot of water. Kudos, to living a clean life also if your statement is true.

The misspelling might be why the Google searches came up to a bunch of weird sites.

This happened to me too and I was invited to retest. In my case I drank a lot of water right before the test was taken and I guess that is what threw it off. I have heard lately that if your urine is yellow that you are dehydrated, yet mine was not yellow and I remember the person I gave the cup to questioning this. WTH? FWIW I was clean and had nothing to worry about. As individuals we tend to know whether or not we are clean.

I am clean too, and the water must have been it. I probably drank 3-4 bottles of water before, and it was quite clear.

Probably; I drank much less right before that test.

The Urine test can be thrown off on a diagnostic level from many things even aside from water. There is a hair sample test that is much more accurate and can go back up to a year but more expensive to use to screen candidates. That is why the urine sample test is the go-to one.
