Chlorine is an important element in keeping swimming pools, drinking water, and other aquatic environments sanitary and safe. To maintain chlorine levels at the acceptable range, testing with Hydrion Chlorine Test Strips is a quick and easy way to monitor chlorine levels in such environments.
Hydrion chlorine test strips are a simple and reliable way to measure the level of free chlorine in a variety of aqueous solutions, such as pool water, hot tubs, tap water, and more. They are easy to use and require minimal training to use properly. Chlorine is an essential part of washing and sanitation processes, and the accurate measurement of chlorine levels is essential to ensure that your liquid solutions are safe and clean.
The Hydrion chlorine test strips are a colorimetric test, meaning they indicate results through visible changes in color. The strips change color according to the amount of free chlorine in the liquid being analyzed, and are available in a variety of chlorine concentration range options, including 0.2-1.5, 1-3, and 3-10 ppm. The strips have a range of other features that make them a popular choice for testing chlorine levels in liquids, including a long shelf life, low cost, and convenience.
These strips not only test for free available chlorine, but can also detect total available chlorine and indicate temperature. Here are 9 tests you can do with Hydrion Chlorine Test Strips:
Tests one can perform:
1. Total Available Chlorine Test –
This test indicates the amount of all the chlorine present in the water, including free chlorine and the chlorine that already combined with other substances – such as nitrogen from urine and sweat – to form chloramines.
2. Free Available Chlorine Test –
This test indicates the free available chlorine present in the water, as this is the form of chlorine that is available to sanitize.
3. pH Test –
The hydrogen peroxide test strips use a color chart to indicate the pH of the water. This information is important to determine the correct amount of chlorine to use and maintain a neutral, or near-neutral, balance in the pool.
4. Temperature Test –
The test strip also helps you determine the temperature of the pool or other aquatic environment. Thermometers can take time to give you an accurate reading, so these strips can be used as a quick check.
5. Cyanuric Acid Test –
Cyanuric acid, or stabilizer, helps stabilize chlorine in the presence of ultraviolet rays, allowing it to last longer. This test can tell you the level of stabilizer present in the water.
6. Bromine Test –
The strips can accurately determine bromine levels in hot tubs and spas, which is important to ensure proper sanitization and safety.
7. Calcium Hardness Test –
Calcium hardness levels measure the amount of calcium present in the water, which is important for preventing corrosion of equipment and for the overall health of the pool.
8. alkTotality Test –
This test will determine the overall Total Alkalinity of the water, which is important for buffering the pH and providing stability.
9. Copper Test –
Copper is often added to pools as an algaecide and fungicide. It is important to maintain an acceptable level of copper, so these test strips can be helpful in ensuring the level is within acceptable range.
Using Hydrion Chlorine Test Strips from Level7Chemical is an easy way to test for free available chlorine, total available chlorine, pH, temperature, cyanuric acid, bromine, calcium hardness, alkTotality, and copper in swimming pools and other aquatic environments. The results of these tests can then be used to adjust or adjust the various levels as needed – or to alert you if the levels are beyond acceptable range.
