Your Water Quality May Not Be What You Think

HOW TO FIND OUT WHAT'S COMING OUT OF YOUR TAP

Your local water utility is required by the EPA to produce an annual water quality report. This is called a Consumer Confidence Report, or CCR, which your utility shares with you once per year.

The CCR is intended to provide information about the contaminants in your water. However, most CCR results are based on averages from testing in the utility's pipes rather than at the tap. Nearly all third party water quality information available online is based on this sort of testing.

Annual water reports are far from perfect

  • They can be difficult to find
  • Limited information on contamination
  • Lacks health impacts and plumbing information
  • Does not represent YOUR water quality at your tap

You can only know the quality at your tap with a lab water test

The only way to know your home’s tap water chemistry, is to test it at home. Until recently, certified environmental testing labs have not been accessible at home. Tap Score has changed that.
