What you get▾
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 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.
Who is this for?▾
This package is designed for customers who:
- Are served by a private or shared well.
- Have a septic tank near the well or other source of potential bacterial contamination
- Are concerned about runoff from agricultural activity.
- Have young children or other vulnerable individuals in their home.
- Are treating their own well water.
- Are concerned about contamination from oil and gas operations.
- Want to test for radiation related to a variety of sources.
- Are concerned about perfluorinated compounds (PFOA, PFOS, etc.).
How it works▾
Testing packages include sterilized water sampling vials, return shipping label, testing instructions, sample information card, and foam padding for the contents.
Once the lab receives your box, your personalized Tap Score Report will arrive by email within 14 business days.

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 Tap Score 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.
