WaterWorks™ Free & Total Chlorine Eco Packs (NCW-480655)
All of the reagents are impregnated on the test strip pad, and no external chemicals are needed to perform the water quality test. Chlorination will destroy and deactivate disease producing microorganisms. Chlorination may introduce undesirable taste and odor. To monitor chlorination and minimize any adverse effects, proper testing should be performed routinely. Free Chlorine is a very effective disinfectant.
Total Chlorine is the combination of both Free (available) Chlorine and reacted Chlorine, or Chloramines. Chloramines are formed when Free Chlorine reacts with organic compounds. Chloramines are less effective at disinfection than Free Chlorine and may cause eye and skin irritation in addition to a strong Chlorine smell.
