Hey there. I am interested to know if anyone knows a good source to test my brewing water and give me an analysis. I live in Arizona.

You city water department should send you a copy of your water whenever it is tested.

Ours does, as well as prints it in the newspaper.

ward lab is the place to go. www.wardlab.com . very cheap and quick. they will even do the analysis before they were paid which i though was great.

I have heard that phoenix water is some of the worst in the country. I would start with your town or county's water analysis though. It is free and may give you all the information you need. What town do you live in?

I should have mentioned that I was referring to my RO system water.

Assuming your RO system is working fine, shouldn't you already know what your water profile will be? RO should remove most of your minerals and impurities. Or are you seeking verification of this?
