Hydrogen Sulphide is characterised by a 'rotten egg' smell and exposure to high concentrations can damage health. Even after a short exposure it paralyses the olfactory nerves, so that one does not smell it. Therefore, regular testing is important.
This wide-range Hydrogen Sulphide water quality test gives reliable results in 10 seconds without the need for any laboratory equipment. Simply dip the test strip in the water sample for one second, shake off the excess and compare your results to the color chart provided.
- Simple Dip-Wait-Read Testing Method
- Test strips are stored in a plastic container to protect them
- Ideal for quick and reliable testing of water
- This product is safe and easy to use since there are no chemicals to mix, an MSDS is not required
When hydrogen sulphide is detected at low concentrations, then it doesn't necessarily pose a risk to health . It gives water the 'rotten egg' smell and, as it is corrosive, it may tarnish copper and silverware, and cause black stains on laundry and porcelain even at concentrations as low as 1.0ppm. Higher concentrations may be more harmful to health.
Sulfur-reducing bacteria can live in oxygen-deficient areas, like deep wells, plumbing systems, water softeners or water heaters. High concentrations of hydrogen sulphide are rare, and they don't usually happen in household drinking water (tap water). Water softeners provide a convenient environment for these bacteria to grow and they can foul the resin bed of an ion exchange water softener.
