Chlorine is the most widely used disinfectant for drinking water, particularly for those on a public water supply or city water. Because chlorine dissipates quickly, it is not appropriate for laboratory based testing and our scientists recommend testing both free and total chlorine on site. To provide accurate results, this is a single-use, at home test strip you can use to measure free and total chlorine levels right at your tap. Our scientists have reviewed the performance of these test strips in our laboratory so you can be confident in their quality. Chlorine Test Strips may only be ordered as an add-on to our other Xpress Water Testing®.
Testing for chlorine is important not only for sanitation reasons but is of growing interest as reports of health issues related to high or long-term exposure to chlorinated drinking water become more common.
