I was walking out of Home Depot today and at the exit was a rack of envelopes with vials that says Free Water Testing. It looks like it covers the important stuff like minerals, hardness, pH.... I'm very curious to see with the report looks like.

This is just a heads up, I have no idea if its worthwhile or not, but WTH, its free! Even postage is paid.

Is there a company name or a lab name on it?

The envelope, vial and paperwork all are stamped with Home Depot.

Good luck with that. Nothing is "free". My wife and I used to go to these timeshare sales deals. All you had to do was listen to some drivel and you got the "free" tickets to whatever. After a few of those mistakes, I am very pessimistic about "free".

I just did a search on "Free Home Depot Water Testing" and it appears to be a way to get sales leads for Rainsoft. They want to sell you an expensive water filtration system. I didn't find any positive reviews.
