SVOC Water Test
Recommended for targeted testing of semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) in drinking water. SVOCs are a broad group of moderate volatility substances that can be found in pesticides, plasticizers, flame retardants, furnishings, personal care products (PPCP), electronics, and cleaning agents. They include many types of chemicals which exhibit a wide range of different chemical properties. Common SVOCs include: polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), pesticides (organophosphorus, organochlorine, nitrogen-based), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), phthalates, chloroalkanes, phenols, dioxins, and more.
They can enter drinking water in a variety of ways, and this package is ideal for addressing concerns related to: nearby contamination due to industrial activity, heavy pesticides use, and leaching from plastic plumbing and related adhesives.
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 SVOC compounds by EPA method 8270C (or equivalent).
