chlorine in tap water

Recommended Posts

I am just curious if anyone does chlorine tests on the tap water before they use is ? I have no water tanks to collect rain water so i am stuck with tap water for now. I found a tester on ebay that might work as a general safeguard in case the council has a dosing pump fail or decides to spike the chlorine for some reason.

Yes I test tap water for chlorine regularly. They dose higher during rainy periods and over weekend as they try to estimate what comes out at your tap.

I make my own dechlorinator and generally like to know what's happening with the water.

Swim pool chlorine test kit is all you need.

Yep, I test using a pool test kit before large volume water changes, often surprised by the range in levels of levels on the Sunshine Coast, does it change the way I use my dechlorinator?, yep.
