Dear Neighbor,
This is my shared TAP SCORETM Report

BASED ON LABORATORY TESTING AND ANALYSIS YOUR TAP SCORE IS 61 (POOR)

According to SimpleWater Recommendations, which are based on guidelines established by Federal and State agencies as well as leading academic research, the water samples you provided for testing demonstrate your water quality is Poor. This means your sample contained at least one harmful contaminant in excess of health recommendations, or a variety of smaller hazards. Please review your Report and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Understanding your Tap Score

First time reading a Tap Score Report? This section explains what all the bars and colors mean.

SimpleWater's health risks analysis compares your sample’s contaminant levels to the latest publicly available toxicological and epidemiological research. This is done in order to give you a clear idea of what potential risks may be in your water. Click on each contaminant to learn more about its known health impacts and potential sources. This analysis should not be taken as professional health advice.

We use the following measurement units:

General properties of your water

The following section describes general indicators of your overall water quality. These parameters may not directly impact your health but they will influence the chemical nature of metals and other potential contaminants in your water supply.


Pipe health summary

The following section describes key parameters influencing the health of your pipes and treatment hardware.

SimpleWater's Notes: High levels of trihalomethanes (chlorine disinfection byproducts).

BrDiChM VOC
Bromodichloromethane Measurement: 0.01392 PPM
Exceeds federal goal (MCL-G) of 0 PPM
HEALTH EFFECTS   Possible Carcinogen

It is known to cause kidney, liver and central nervous system problems in animals. The Department of Health and Human Services has described bromodichloromethane as "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen," however no human studies have yet proven this in drinking water.

Kidneys
Adrenal
Liver
Gastrointestinal
COMMON SOURCES

Bromodichloromethane is a disinfection byproduct from the trihalomethane (THM) family. It is commonly formed when chlorine, chloramines or other common water treatment disinfectants react with organic and inorganic matter in water. It was also formerly used as solvent, medicine (sedative), flame retardant.

DBClM VOC
Dibromochloromethane Measurement: 0.02524 PPM
Exceeds Simplewater's recommendation of 0.003 PPM
HEALTH EFFECTS   Possible Carcinogen

Kidney, liver or central nervous system problems; increased risk of cancer.

Kidneys(lower evidence)
Adrenal(lower evidence)
Liver(lower evidence)
Nervous System(lower evidence)
COMMON SOURCES

DBClM is an unregulated byproduct of drinking water disinfection and a manufactured chemical used in chemical synthesis and as an ingredient in fire extinguishing fluids.

BroMo VOC
Bromoform Measurement: 0.01102 PPM
Exceeds federal goal (MCL-G) of 0 PPM
HEALTH EFFECTS   Possible Carcinogen

High levels of bromoform in drinking water may cause an increased risk of cancer.

COMMON SOURCES

Bromoform is a disinfection byproduct from the trihalomethane (THM) family. It is commonly formed when chlorine, chloramines or other common water treatment disinfectants react with organic and inorganic matter in water. It was also formerly used as solvent, medicine (sedative), flame retardant.

Sr Metal
Strontium Measurement: 5.63 PPM
Exceeds Simplewater's recommendation of 1.5 PPM
HEALTH EFFECTS

At high chronic exposure (more than 4 PPM) strontium may affect bone growth and impact children.

Nervous System
CLICK TO SHOW 1 POTENTIAL EFFECT ON THE BODY AT HIGHER CONCENTRATIONS
COMMON SOURCES

Geologic weathering leads to naturally-occurring strontium in the environment. Strontium 90 occurrence may also be linked to nuclear fallout and other anthropogenic sources such as air contamination from milling processes, coal burning, and phosphate fertilizers.
