Analysis of Tapwater Contaminants by FTIR and EDX Spectroscopy

We describe an example of analysis of contaminants often encountered in plumbing using samples. Contaminants taken from locations near a tap water outlet were analyzed by FTIR and EDX spectroscopy and the source of these contaminants was identified. An FTIR spectra search was performed using the tap water contaminants library. The library contains an infrared spectra database and EDX profile database of actual collected contaminants.
