Recommended by SimpleLab™ for comprehensive water quality testing in any home, building, or facility served by a water utility or a private well (especially those located near industrial or agricultural activity).
This Tap Score water testing package includes detailed analysis of common water health concerns related to natural water chemistry, nearby human activity, and on-premise plumbing, such as heavy metals, minerals, bacteria, hardness, silica, and volatile organic compounds (related to chlorination process and/or industrial activity).
Testing includes: Heavy metals, minerals, general chemistry, coliform and E. coli bacteria, trihalomethanes, disinfection byproducts, 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.

Testing for chlorine and chloramine at home
The easiest way to test your chlorine levels is at home. Chlorine evaporates quickly and measuring it in the lab requires expensive shipping and refrigeration. In order to provide a cost-effective measurement of your home's chlorine levels, your package includes a chlorine test strip. The strip we send you will show Total Chlorine and Free Chlorine in your water, from which the presence of Chloramine can also be derived.
Testing for hydrogen sulfide at home
Testing for H2S: Unlike most other chemical and biological tests included in this testing package, the H2S (hydrogen sulfide) test is best conducted by you at the tap. Your package will include an H2S test strip and instructions for entering those results online on your Report Dashboard.
How it works▾
This mail-in laboratory testing package includes:
- sampling vial(s)
- sampling instructions
- prepaid priority return shipping label
- sample information card/chain of custody document
- shipping container
- cold pack
Once the lab receives the sample, your personalized Tap Score Report will arrive by email within 5 business days.
Each testing package is intended for one sample from a single location, unless otherwise specified.
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.
