WaterWorks™ Chloride Check is the most advanced chloride test strip available today. Designed to verify EPA guidelinesfor chloride, these Chloride Check test strips are easy and safe-to-use without sacrificing performance and reliability.
Measuring levels from 0-500 ppm (mg/L), Chloride Check promises to replace conventional measuring techniques.
Why Test for Chlorides?
In recent years scientists studying the effects of certain industrial activities have loosely linked changes in chloride concentrations found in bodies of water (both above and below ground) near those activities to those activities. Accordingly, researchers have determined that extreme changes in chloride concentrations found in a water supply merit further investigation and more in-depth testing.
As an example, some researchers studying the effects of hydraulic fracturing (aka: fracking) on surface and ground water believe that sudden changes in chloride levels my occur as a result of hydraulic fracturing and suggest performing other testing if a private well owner notices a change in chloride levels in his/her well water.
