Todays A vs B comparison is for 2 great products from SimpleLab Tap Score that feel kind of awesome. Between Total Arsenic Water Test and Manganese Water Test, which do we like better? Why? Let’s take a much closer look and see what there is to see.
Total Arsenic Water Test 🙃
Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing of total arsenic concentrations in drinking water. Arsenic is a naturally occurring heavy metal and known human carcinogen. Arsenic can frequently occur in groundwater (ie. private well water) and recent studies from the Natural Resources Defense Council study reports that nearly 77 million Americans receive drinking water from systems that violate federal regulations for arsenic (>10 PPB).
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, analysis of total arsenic.
Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing for manganese in drinking water. Manganese is a naturally occurring metal and is used in steel and corrosion-resistant aluminum alloys. It can also be an additive in unleaded gasoline, pigment, plumbing materials, battery cells, matches, fireworks, and fertilizer. This testing package is recommended for clients seeking to re-test manganese only or for those with a known manganese issue experiencing metallic taste in their water, brownish-black or brownish-red color on toilets, shower curtains, and sinks.
So I’m saying my choice between these two is a close call in favor of Total Arsenic Water Test.
