TAPP 2 Independent Lab Test

TAPP 2 removes over 80+ contaminants tested according to NSF standards.

At TAPP Water we believe in total transparency and rigerous testing of the effectiveness of our products wherever they are used by customers. Therefore we continously test the products to ensure that they live up to our promises and share the results openly.

First of all, the filters go through lab tests where contaminants are artifically added, filtered and output is analysed to confirm effectiveness. Secondly we take water samples from customers before and after filtering.

TAPP 2 Independent lab test

Below is a a lab test carried out by Itabe lab using a water sample of 2L of TAPP 2 fitlered water, as well as 2L of non-filtered tap water. The test shows that TAPP 2 effectively reduces chemicals such as chloride, nitrate, fluoride and TTHMs while keeping healthy minerals  like Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium.

Units Maximum Recommended Value Reduction
Chlorine Test
Chlorine 2.28 0.09 ml/l 4 96%

Note: Chlorine is separately tested as it evaporates during transportation of the samples. To verify, a simply home test strip set shows 95% effectiveness.
