Recommended for targeted testing for the presence and enumeration of motile, non-motile, and diatom algae. Algae can enter drinking water supplies during periods of freshwater and marine harmful algal blooms (HABs). HABs can occur anytime there is an excessive accumulation of algae growth. Some types of algae are toxic, but often algae is not–yet it can lead to a moldy taste and smell in your water. This testing package is ideal for people who are located near a harmful algal bloom event and are noticing unpalatable taste and odor issues in their drinking water.

This Tap Score water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis and enumeration (cell count) of algae.


Algae Enumeration Water Test

Is this the right test for you?


What our scientists say:

“ While not all algae is harmful, some algae may produce dangerous microcystins. You should always wash water pitchers, containers, and pet bowls with bleach, and keep them out of the heat to discourage algal growth. "


This is the right test if you:

    • Water smells or tastes musty, moldy, or mildew-like.
    • See biofilm buildup or other microbial growths on faucets and fixtures.
    • Located near an area with a recent harmful algal bloom.
