This water testing package analyzes your sample for tannins and hydrogen sulfide gas. In addition to laboratory analysis of your water's tannin concentration, you'll receive 2x at home H2S gas testing strips for hydrogen sulfide. This package is a very common add-on among well owners and especially those who:
1) See yellowish colored water
2) Taste a musty flavor
3) Smell rotten eggs
Yellow colored water is often the result of high tannin levels. H2S gas is often the culprit of rotten eggs smell.
Tannins are a naturally formed organic material also commonly described as fulvic or humic acids. They are formed when vegetation is degraded and fermented and then enters your water supply.
Tannins often impart a tea-like color to your water and can lead to the yellow staining of fabrics, fixtures, china and laundry. Tannins may also cause an unpleasant, tart or musty aftertaste in your drinking water. They may also cause water to have a musty or earthy odor.
