Essential Well Water Test
Recommended as an important baseline for water quality testing in any home, building, or facility served by a private well or spring.
This RKIN test package in collaboration with SimpleLab, endorsed by the US Water Systems Council, provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a water sample for certified laboratory testing. The results will include detailed analysis of common water health concerns related to natural water chemistry and on-premise plumbing. Testing is specialized to address contaminants such as heavy metals, minerals, bacteria, hardness, silica–as well as issues related to plumbing.
Testing includes: Heavy metals, minerals, general chemistry, silica, coliform, and E. coli.
Report analysis includes: Health-risk assessment, potential plumbing and aesthetic issues (taste, odor, appearance), and comparison to any regulatory limits and/or public health guidelines.
Contaminants this tests for
Alkalinity (as CaCO3), Conductivity, Hardness, LSI, pH, SAR, Silica, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Hardness, Turbidity
Metals & Minerals
Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Beryllium, Boron, Cadmium, Calcium, Chromium (Total), Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Lead, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Mercury, Molybdenum, Nickel, Phosphorous, Potassium, Selenium, Silver, Sodium, Strontium, Thallium, Tin, Titanium, Uranium, Vanadium, Zinc

Testing for hydrogen sulfide at home
Testing for H2S: Unlike most other chemical and biological tests included in this testing package, the H2S (hydrogen sulfide) test is best conducted by you at the tap. Your package will include an H2S test strip and instructions for entering those results online on your Report Dashboard.
How it works
This mail-in laboratory testing package includes:
- sampling vial(s)
- sampling instructions

Once the lab receives the sample, your personalized SimpleLab Report will arrive by email within 5 business days.
Each testing package is intended for one sample from a single location unless otherwise specified.
By default, this broad-based chemical and biological water quality screening package is designed to provide you with general information about your water for personal use. Each report includes analysis for specific numerical concentration levels of each contaminant and details about the potential sources and health effects associated with each parameter. We are not medical doctors and SimpleLab does not provide medical advice. For medical concerns always consult your doctor. As an informational water quality test, this package is not meant for state or federal compliance water testing. If you or your organization requires compliance with State or Federal Law, or compliance with a particular regulatory requirement then you must contact the SimpleLab support team and we will use the appropriate certified laboratory facilities to ensure your compliance testing requirements are met.
