Recommended by SimpleLab™ as the most comprehensive water quality testing panel for any home, building, or facility served by a private well or spring. Ideal for new wells or water sources that are treated and/or located in radon risk zones or otherwise near agricultural, industrial, and/or oil and gas activity.
This Tap Score test package, endorsed by the US Water Systems Council, provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a water sample for certified laboratory testing. The results will include detailed analysis of common water health concerns related to natural water chemistry, nearby human activity, and on-premise plumbing. In addition to all Advanced Well Water Test chemistry, the Extended Well Water Test includes analysis of tannins, radon, radioactive particles, heterotrophic bacteria, pesticides, plasticizers, and other common industrial and agricultural contaminants.
Testing includes: Heavy metals, minerals, general chemistry, silica, coliform and E. coli, volatile organic compounds, trihalomethanes, disinfection byproducts, tannins, radon, radioactive particles, heterotrophic bacteria, semi-volatile organic compounds.
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.

View example report▾
When testing is complete, you will receive a Tap Score Water Quality Report including a comprehensive analysis of all test results, health impacts, treatment options, and household water appliance risks. If all you want is the raw result data, we can do that too. This mini-tour highlights some of what makes Tap Score unique. Click here for a full example report.
Understand the meaning of your results in one quick glance. Can you rest easy or is there something to be concerned about?
The report summarizes the most trustworthy research available on the potential health effects of each contaminant detected.
What's that smell?
The potential sources of any strange tastes, colors, or smells in your water are also analyzed.
What to do next
If you need it, our legendary treatment support team makes unbiased recommendations for the products that can treat the contaminants found in your water. In this example, the test results showed high arsenic, lead, and sodium from a salt-based softener.

By default, this broad-based chemical and biological water quality screening package is designed to provide you with general information about your water for personal use. Each report includes analysis for specific numerical concentration levels of each contaminant and details about the potential sources and health effects associated with each parameter. We are not medical doctors and SimpleLab does not provide medical advice. For medical concerns always consult your doctor. As an informational water quality test, this package is not meant for state or federal compliance water testing. If you or your organization requires compliance with State or Federal Law, or compliance with a particular regulatory requirement then you must contact our support team and we will use the appropriate certified laboratory facilities to ensure your compliance testing requirements are met.
