VOC Water Test
Recommended for targeted testing of the most common volatile organic compounds (VOC) in drinking water. VOCs are commonly detected in most city water supplies, as they are frequently formed as disinfection byproducts from chlorination processes. Additionally, they may also enter water supplies due to nearby contamination from waste facilties, oil and gas activity, heavy agriculture, or decaying plastic plumbing.
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 some of the most commonly detected VOCs found in drinking water.
Included in the Advanced and Extended tests in the Tap Score City Water and Well Water test collections.
