pH of Water test scale

pH test scales

# 110 pH Testing of Water

Colorimetric test strips. (1 test per strip)

This pH test is very versitile in that it can be used for Drinking Water testing, food processing, environmental applications or in any other water matrix.

pH is short for “Power of Hydrogen”. The balance of positively charged and negatively charged hydrogen ions in drinking water determines pH.

Water that has a low pH is acidic or aggressive and can corrode plumbing resulting in metal ions being present in drinking water and damages fixtures and pipes.

Water that has a high pH is basic and will leave scale in pipes and fixtures.

This test features two test pads both measuring at the same range using different color indicators. This makes color matching easier on the Color Comparator Chart than with other colorimetric tests.

The test reports water pH at the following levels:
2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, 9.5, 10, 11, and 12
Results are obtained from this test in 1 minute.






Total Alkalinity of Water test scale

Total Alkalinity test scales

# 105 TOTAL ALKALINITY of WATER

Colorimetric test strips. (1 test per strip)

Total Alkalinity is a fundamental parameter and water testing. Total Alkalinity indicates the buffering capacity of natural waters. A water is said to be buffered if the pH is not changed greatly by addition of acids or bases. The most effective buffering action is within the pH range of water from near 6.0 to about 8.5.


Most natural waters are buffered to some extent by reactions that involve Dissolved Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This Carbon Dioxide is an indispensable reservoir of carbon for photosynthesis. Thus, the productivity’s of water can be correlated with alkalinity and the buffering system.


The Color Comparator Chart for this test allows you to read Total Alkalinity in mg/L or ppm.


This test reports total alkalinity concentrations in water at:
0, 40, 80, 120, 180 and 240 mg/L or ppm.


Results are obtained from this test in 30 seconds.






Total and Free Chlorine in Water test scales

Total and Free Chlorine test scale

# 130 Total and Free Chlorine in Water

Colorimetric test strips. (2 tests per strip)

Total Chlorine and Free Chlorine test strips are used for testing
drinking water from a city water treatment system. This dual test is a convenient way of monitoring Total and Free Chlorine.

This test has been calibrated around EPA drinking water standards. Free Chlorine levels of 4.0 mg/L or greater exceeds Maximum
Contaminant Level (MCL) as recommended by EPA.

The Color Comparator Chart for this test reports mg/L or ppm of:
Total Chlorine 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, 10.0
Free Chlorine 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, 10.0

Results are obtained from this test in 30 seconds.







Bacteria Growth Check test scale

Bacteria Growth Check test scale

# 180 Bacteria Growth Check

Colorimetric test strips. (1 test per strip)

Bacteria Growth Check is a test strip that has been specially formulated with Brain Heart Infusion media that allows maximum cultivation of fastidious aerobic bacteria found in some waters. This test could be used in a variety of applications, however it is not specific for any particular type of bacteria.

You can dip these strips in water or swab surfaces with them. The Bacteria test procedure then requires you to return the test strip into a clear plastic bag for incubation. After 48 hours of room temperature incubation, any fastidious bacteria on the test pad will multiply and turn the test pad pink to red. The darker and more consistent the test pad, the more bacteria that are present.

Bacteria Growth Check tests only a small water sample and requires a significant quantity of bacteria to show a change on the test pad.
