Lead and Copper Water Test
For Sustainable Homes, Inc. clients only.
Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing of lead and copper in drinking water. Lead and copper are commonly found in drinking water in homes, business, or other facilities with aging pipes and fixtures. These metals may leach from distribution lines or other plumbing into the water supply even after it leaves a utility or from on-premise lead and copper pipes. Even in "safe" cities, changes in water chemistry can dissolve these metals from old pipes and deposit them in drinking water supplies.
This package also includes an on-site DIY test strip for pH measurement, as water pH can impact plumbing. Subsequently, pH serves as a crucial indicator of overall water quality and is particularly valuable to know when configuring water filtration and treatment solutions.
Testing includes: Lead and copper by EPA method 200.8 (or equivalent).
Report analysis includes: Health-risk assessment, potential plumbing and aesthetic issues (taste, odor, appearance), and comparison to any regulatory limits and/or public health guidelines.
