Drinking Water Chemistry Report Profile 20
The Drinking Water Chemistry Report determines both regulated and non-regulated metal content in drinking water. It is very common for water to be contaminated despite its source, and even after it reaches a home plumbing system. Heavy metals can leach from pipes, contaminating drinking water and contributing to excessive toxic metal levels. This can cause harmful effects by elevating the levels of metals already in a person's body.
This report tests for all metals considered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as either Primary contaminants, which are health related, or Secondary contaminants, which are aesthetic or a nuisance.
When the levels of primary contaminants exceed the EPA's standards, the drinking water is unsafe. These contaminants include:
Secondary contaminants contribute to a displeasing taste in the water. The water can have an odor, color, or contain other unattractive characteristics. The secondary contaminants include:
The report also shows other metal contaminants that are not currently included by the EPA in either of the listed categories, despite a possible effect on health. These include:
The Drinking Water Chemistry Report comes with:
- Test results in a graph format
- Informative listing of possible causes, risks, and/or effects of the EPA recognized contaminants
It also includes a sterile sample bottle and instructions for how to test the contaminants of water in your home. This bottle must be shipped to the lab in order for them to process your test. Please see below for Trace Elements, Inc.'s mailing address:
