Chlorate Water Test
Recommended for targeted testing of chlorate in drinking water. Chlorate is a chemical anion that may enter drinking water from several potential sources, including from hypochlorite or chlorine dioxide disinfection at a treatment plant and from contamination due to pesticide runoff or industrial discharge. This testing package is recommended for clients concerned about chlorination-related issues or nearby regional contamination. Consumption of high concentration of chlorate by infants and young children can cause nervous system problems, thyroid issues, and anemia.
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 of chlorate by EPA method 300.1 (or equivalent).
