Easy to Use, Basic Test Kit for Chlorine featured

Comments Kit includes 15 ml/0.5 fl. oz. dropper bottle with reagent, 20 ml measurement vial, directions for use. To test for chlorine, add 8 drops reagent to 10 ml water sample, shake vial, compare colors immediately under natural daylight. From instructions: "If no color change occurs, water is chlorine-free. Harmful chlorine levels from 0.02mg/l will result in yellow coloration, with higher chlorine levels the color becomes reddish."

Our local water district combines Ammonium Hydroxide (NH4OH) and Sodium Hypochlorite 12.5 wt% (NaOCl) to produce Chloramine (NH2Cl) for disinfection of tap water. Occasionally, the system is flushed with Chlorine. Because the chlorine/chloramine levels fluctuate, we always test when preparing water for our fish tanks to make sure any chlorine/chloramine has been neutralized. We use Seachem Prime to remove chlorine/chloramine from the water.

The package and instructions only specify that it tests for Chlorine. I sent an email to Sera Gmbh, the manufacturer, and received a confirmation from one of their chemists that this test kit will also detect Chloramine.

This product performs as advertised. We'd been using the Jungle Labs Chlorine/Chloramine Quick Dip strips, but the Sera Chlorine Test Kit seems more cost effective.



Liked about it I don't have assume that I've used enough water conditioner to neutralize the chlorine and chloramine. With this simple test, I can immediately confirm it. The test kit is easy to use and relatively inexpensive.


Didn't like I wish the kit had included a color chart so I'd have an idea of the concentration of chlorine/chloramine in the water.
