Recommended by SimpleLab™ as an expanded panel for water quality testing in any home, building, or facility served by a spring.

This Tap Score test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a water sample for certified laboratory testing. The results will include detailed analysis of common artesian spring water health concerns related to natural water chemistry and on-premise plumbing. Testing is specialized to address contaminants such as heavy metals, minerals, coliform and E. coli, hardness, silica–as well as adds on total heterotrophic bacteria. This package includes overnight return shipping by default for the most accurate bacteria reporting.

Heterotrophic bacteria are broadly defined as microorganisms that require organic carbon for growth. They include bacteria, yeasts, and molds and this total heterotrophic bacteria plate count (HPC) test is an excellent way to demonstrate a quantified presence or absence of microbial activity in a water supply.
