Free Water Testing & Analysis @ Home Depot
 
I came across this free test kit today and thought I would share. It was an envelope hanging in an isle in Home Depot. I haven't used it yet but it says it tests pH, Iron, TDS (Total Dissolved Solids), Hardness, Chlorine, Color, & Odor. I know you can go online to see your areas water parameters with your water company but some of the parameters may change by the time it actually gets to your house. Well I will keep you posted to see if the numbers are actually accurate.

Very nice, I might see what my iron content is.

Just be warned, they won't do it if you tell them it's aquarium water, and be ready for them to try to sell you a tap water filter for thousands of dollars.
