Recommended Water Tests

Standard Well Water Test

The Standard Water Test was developed by Xperiential’s scientists to assess your water for commonly found contaminants. This test focuses on bacterial contamination, concerns related to agricultural runoff, and the toxic metals arsenic and lead, as well as general water quality characteristics of sodium and hardness, the former of particular importance to those with cardiovascular issues or on a low-sodium diet; the latter important to control in order to extend the life of your home’s appliances and water fixtures.

Basic City Water Test

The City Water Test was developed by Xperiential’s scientists for those on a public water supply to include the most common types of contaminants we find in city water samples from across the nation. In addition to such concerns as bacterial contamination and the toxic metals lead and copper, the City Water Test measures your water’s level of fluoride, to which recent studies have increasingly supported a link to neurotoxicity.

Comprehensive Well/City Water Test

The Comprehensive Water Test was designed by Xperiential’s scientists for our customers who want a truly in depth picture of their water quality, covering major classes of contaminants such as bacterial contamination, agricultural runoff, inorganic contaminants and additives such as sulfates and fluoride, toxic and heavy metals, as well as an understanding of the general characteristics of their water: mineral content, pH, hardness, and so on.
