Advanced City Water Test

This package covers a wide range of health risks that water utilities sometimes miss, and some they can't catch. Even if water leaving your local treatment plant is clean, it takes a 3-7 day journey to your home through a network of aging pipes that sometimes introduces new contaminants into your water.

What does this test for?

testing by a certified lab

A note from our Environmental Science Director:

There are more than 160,000 public water systems in the USA. Each can be dramatically different from another in terms of size, source water quality, treatment engineering, distribution and public relations management. Moreover, the water quality within any one water system will also vary significantly for every customer due to distance, piping age and connection type.

Testing for chlorine at home

The most sensible way to test your chlorine levels is with self-testing. Chlorine is a very volatile chemical and properly measuring chlorine in the lab requires very expensive shipping methods and refrigeration. In order to give you the most effective reading on your home's chlorine levels your package includes two FREE chlorine test strips. The strips we send you will show if your chlorine levels are abnormally high (or low) in your water.

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.

Executive summary

Understand the meaning of your results in one quick glance. Can you rest easy or is there something to be concerned about?

Health analysis

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.

Pipes and plumbing

Whether or not something is in your water that can affect your health, we let you know if your pipes and appliances are also in the clear.

Who is this for?

This package is designed for customers who:

  • Are served by a water utility they have doubts about.
  • Live in a home built before 1986 or an area served by old infrastructure.
  • Have young children or other vulnerable individuals in their home.
  • Want to check for chemicals from plastic pipes.
  • Are concerned about over-chlorination and the resulting chemicals.

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.
