The hardness of your water varies depending on your water source and where you live. Almost 75% of Americans live in a hard water zone. Our Water Hardness Test strips are a simple and affordable way to find out just how hard your water is.
While there may be health benefits to drinking water with excess calcium and magnesium, many people become frustrated with the negative effects of excessively hard water. A high concentration of minerals in your water can make cleaning a challenge because it renders many soaps less effective and leaves behind a film. Over time, minerals can build up inside your pipes, reducing water flow and causing costly damage. Mineral buildup can also cause water using appliances to become inefficient and more expensive to operate.
Water softeners are an effective way to reduce the hardness of your water. In order to choose the most effective softener, you need to know the hardness level of your water. Our foil wrapped Water Hardness Test Strips allow for fast and accurate testing in seconds. The results are easy to read by following along with our color-coded charts and instruction manual. No need for expensive equipment or to send samples to a lab.
The EPA does not have any standards for allowable levels of water hardness because it does not pose a health risk. Water hardness is classified by the U.S. Department of Interior and the Water Quality Association. Up to 17.1 ppm is considered soft, at 120 ppm water is labeled at moderately hard, and levels above 180 ppm are very hard. Use our test strips to quickly identify the hardness level of your water.
