Chemicals migrate into water from old pipes, industry, agriculture, and other sources. Many have no taste, color, or smell. Authorities test at some facilities but they don't know what's coming out of your tap.
Tap Score is the only home water testing service with unbiased treatment matching and health risk analysis - so you don't waste money on treatment that doesn't do what you need.
Choose Your Water Source
For Private and Shared Wells
The only way to know what's in your well is to perform a complete screen. Some potent carcinogens, like arsenic, have no taste or color.
For Water Utility Customers
Water from a utility can spend 3-7 days traveling through old pipes before reaching your home, where plumbing and fixtures can also influence water quality.
"We’ve tested our water every year for 20 years, and the Tap Score was the first test I can honestly say I fully understood."
