Recommended for targeted testing for common mold and fungal contamination in drinking water. Mold is a form of fungus that spreads through the production of spores. These spores are invisible to the naked eye and able to survive in harsh conditions. Rapid mold and fungus growth occurs in areas with lots of moisture–particularly near leaks in pipes, windows, or rooftops. However, mold and fungus can survive in very harsh conditions and can thrive in a variety of environments. This testing package is ideal for people noticing a musty, mildewy, or moldy taste in their water or seeing biofilm/slimy buildup on fixtures.

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 various molds, fungi, and total heterotrophic bacteria count (HPC). Along with analysis for black mold (Asp. spp.) and other Aspergillus formations, and full speciation of Penicillium and Cladosporium genera–it also reports total heterotrophic bacteria count (HPC). Total HPC includes bacteria, yeasts, and molds and is an excellent way to demonstrate a quantified presence or absence of microbial activity in a water supply.
