Advanced Radiological Water Test
Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing for contaminants commonly responsible for radioactivity in drinking water. This package specifically analyzes for some of the most common radiological drinking water concerns: gross alpha and beta particles, uranium, radon, radium-226, and radium-228.
This testing is ideal as followup testing for client's with known radiological issues in their drinking water and can help pinpoint the exact source. If you are unsure about the radiological content of your drinking water, this cost-effective, broad radiological scan is recommended as a starting point: Full Radiation Water Test.
While radioactivity in water is often due to naturally occurring factors, such as uranium in nearby bedrock, elevated radioactivity levels in water may also be attributed to close proximity to: waste facilities, heavy agricultural activity, or oil and gas activity.
According to a recent investigative report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), more than 170 million Americans drink tap water contaminated by radiation. Long term exposure to low levels of radiation in drinking water is a serious health hazard, especially for pregnant women.
This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis of all parameters tested.
Testing includes: Gross alpha particles (EPA 900.0), gross beta particles (EPA 900.0), uranium (EPA 200.8), radon (SM 7500 Rn B), radium-226 (EPA 903.0) and radium-228 (EPA 904.0) .
Report analysis includes: Health-risk assessment, potential plumbing and aesthetic issues (taste, odor, appearance), comparison to any regulatory limits and/or public health guidelines, and unbiased treatment recommendations.
