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

Testing packages include sterilized water sampling vial(s), return shipping label, testing instructions, sample information card, and padding for the contents.

Please note that unless otherwise specified, each product is intended for a single sampling location.

Once the lab receives your box, your personalized Tap Score Report will arrive by email within 5 business days.

Informational testing

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.
