Advanced Spring Water Test

55 Analytes Tested
coliform hardness heavy metals nitrates Total HPC turbidity See Full List

Recommended as an expanded panel for water quality testing in any home, building, or facility served by a spring.

This Tap Score test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a water sample for certified laboratory testing. The results will include detailed analysis of common artesian spring water health concerns related to natural water chemistry and on-premise plumbing. Testing is specialized to address contaminants such as heavy metals, minerals, coliform and E. coli, hardness, silica–as well as adds on total heterotrophic bacteria. This package includes overnight return shipping by default for the most accurate bacteria reporting.

Heterotrophic bacteria are broadly defined as microorganisms that require organic carbon for growth. They include bacteria, yeasts, and molds and this total heterotrophic bacteria plate count (HPC) test is an excellent way to demonstrate a quantified presence or absence of microbial activity in a water supply.

Sampling Instructions

Every test comes with step by step instructions on how to prepare your water source, collect your water sample, and prepare your sample for return shipment to our labs.

Collection Bottles

Your kit includes all the bottles, tubes or vials necessary to collect your water sample. For most kits, however, there is only one collection bottle needed.

Sample Information Card

Your kit includes a postcard that asks for a few details about how and where you collected your sample (i.e. kitchen faucet). Just fill it out, drop it in the return box, and we'll do the rest.

Prepaid Shipping Label

Shipping is always on us. This package includes a prepaid overnight shipping label to the lab. Just stick the provided label on the outside of the box and drop it in the mail.

Return Container (If Applicable)

Some of our tests require your water sample to be cold when it reaches our labs. If this applies to your test, the proper refrigeration items will be included.

Which test is right for me?

When in doubt, start with a Core Kit to analyze multiple contaminants with a single test. If you have more specific motivations for testing, try our Customize My Kit feature to match your needs to the right test(s).

What's the turnaround time?

Most people receive results within 3-5 business days after the lab receives their sample. However, some tests may require additional analytical time so be sure to check each kit’s product page for the most accurate estimate.

What will my report include?

Your report will rank your water against local and federal safety benchmarks, provide a thorough breakdown of any contaminants detected and how they may be affecting your health or plumbing, and provide non-biased treatment recommendations.
