Default Newbie looking for water chemistry help

This might be a stupid question but are any suggestions on where to get a proper water chemistry test for brewing. Thanks!

+1 on contacting your supplier.

I emailed my local water district with a specific list of parameters I was interested in and with in hours I had a response. Not only did the representative give me what he had, he contacted a neighboring district that also supplies my area and had them contact me as well. YMMV.
