I sent mine in, they sent me my results and an invoice. Then you just pay by CC or send a check

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I've got a vacuum sealer that will allow me to vacuum pack liquids (it's a chamber sealer). Do you think that sending a pouch of water would be OK? It would definitely minimize headspace, and I can be sure that it'll fit in a flat-rate box.

Anyone see problems with this approach?

Yes. You have to rely on other people to pack their packages correctly...which never happens.

when speaking to wards lab, inc.....before sending a sample, they suggested a 16 oz bottled water bottle.....dump the water rinse out with the sample water a few time fill and send it on. and that's what I did. ......used an aqua fina bottle.

cheers

Make sure write at least your phone number on the bottle with a market, in case it gets separated from the paperwork.

I don't understand... Why would anyone else be involved?

Did the price of this test go up recently? All I see is the W5 test is $39.60.

+1 on the price... was just talking to someone about this and was quoted about $16. Price is $39.60 for brewers test or $28.60 for the wt6 test which is only less iron and phosphorus (which isn't on my radar at this point).

I had planned to send my household water and also a sample of spring water from the grocery store i've been using followed by a sample of "RO" water from the grocery store just to see what i'm working with.

Anyone know of another lab that does the same testing?
