Municipal water must be treated to remove dirt, bacteria, and all other possible contaminants. Before water gets to your home, it is filtered and disinfected with chlorine. The chlorination of public water kills germs, bacteria, and microorganisms to help prevent the spread of waterborne diseases such as cholera, dysentery, and typhoid.
Despite the benefits of adding chlorine to water supplies, too much chlorine and regular exposure to this toxic chemical can cause certain health risks. The EPA concluded that there is an association between drinking highly chlorinated water and bladder, colon, and rectal cancers. Excessive chlorination may also cause water to have an unpleasant taste and odor.
Low levels of chlorine in drinking water are considered safe. The EPA sets standards for allowable levels of chlorine in tap water but not all local and municipal water systems meet these standards. Our Chlorine Test Strips allow you to easily and regularly measure the chlorine levels in your drinking water.
With our test strips, you can test your water at home, at the office, and at school in a matter of seconds to ensure that you are not ingesting high levels of chlorine. Be sure to test your bottled water too, as most bottled water comes from municipal sources that are treated with chlorine.
Simply dip the test strip into your water and compare to the color chart to determine the level of chlorine. No need for expensive equipment or to send samples to a lab.
