  1. Having a GenX problem in NC. Want to get a whole house filtration system. Pls advise

    1. Hi, LaNita: I am so sorry to hear that. Jim, who is detailed in my article, is a great resource for that. Give him a call. ~Irina

      1. They don’t but claim to conduct more rigorous testing than required by NSF…

        Just trying to narrow it down as I need to pick a system in the next few days…

        thanks a lot for your wealth of information!!!

        1. I see. The test reports look good. Why do you prefer Berkey water filters over the ones I researched? ~Irina

  2. It appears that Tap Score does not measure fluoride content in water…correct?

    1. Hi, Sasha: Tap Score measures fluoride. What makes you think that it does not? ~Irina

  3. I dug deeper into their site, and read that the fluoride is indeed listed as a substance they test. Sorry — it was just not listed on the main page that compared products, so I assumed it was not tested for.

    I send water tap sample to them and there was a high Arsenic with a score water quality of 95 out of 100
    I send water filter sample which work with carbon black filer (BG 3000) there was a high Ni in water but No more Arsenic and quality sore of 87 out 0f 100
    I got Aquatru filtration which work with a reverse osmosis action and send ONE sample of both filter (BG 3000 and Aquatru filtration) that everything was fine and sore was 96 out of 100.

    Hi Irina, thank you for your tremendous work. Which test did you buy from tap score?
