Hard water usually contains a high concentration of dissolved minerals. Calcium and magnesium are the most common minerals to cause hard water. While hard water can have some unpleasant characteristics such as odor or an off taste, it is not considered a health hazard. In fact, it is believed that the high concentration of calcium and magnesium can help people meet the necessary dietary requirements for these important minerals.

Despite the potential health benefits, hard water can become a nuisance. Mineral buildup can clog pipes and damage water using appliances. Hard water may leave a film on glass shower doors, tubs, shower walls, and sinks. It also affects the amount of soap and detergent needed for cleaning.

Whether you have well water or municipal water, our Water Hardness Test Strips will quickly show you the levels of calcium and magnesium in your water.

Water Hardness Test Kit Includes:

  • 20 strips foil wrapped in 2-strip packages
  • Easy to read color chart to determine hardness levels

Product Description

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.

Water Hardness Test Kit Features:

  • Foil wrapped to preserve freshness and increase shelf life
  • 20 strips in 2-strip packages
  • Fast and accurate results in under 30 seconds
  • Easy to read color chart to determine hardness levels
  • Measures level of hardness from 0 ppm (0 grains) to 400 ppm (24 grains)
  • Made in the USA

    Very easy to use. Found that my current residence has very hard water. I compared my faucet water to a bottle of store bought drinking water just to validate the results and confirm the accuracy of the strips.

    The strips are very easy to work with-and nice to get an insight quickly as to water hardness. Very efficient with placing the order, shipping. Very satisfied.

    I simply wanted to test to see if the water softener was actually working. Very easy to use. I compared a test of the water coming in to the water out if the softener and was satisfied. The strip measured the hardness of untreated water very near what the water company said it was. Also reassuring.
