Industrial Test Systems, Inc. (ITS), located in Rock Hill, SC, announces the release of WaterWorks™ Total Iron visual test which detects ferric (Fe 3) as well as ferrous (Fe 2) forms of iron. This test was developed to make accurate total iron testing easier and requires no meter. Test results are available in only 3 minutes. Follow this simple method:

Test Procedure:

  1. Add contents of one iron powder pillow to the supplied vial.
  2. Fill the vial with water sample to top line.
  3. Close the vial with the screw cap and shake for 20 seconds.
  4. Wait 3 minutes for the color to develop.
  5. Remove the cap.
  6. Place vial in white circles and look down into the vial to match to the nearest color block, on the reverse side, to determine the iron concentration.

National Secondary Drinking Water Regulations set forth by the USEPA recommend an iron level of no more than 0.3 ppm. Detection levels for this visual test are 0, 0.3, 0.5, 1, 3, 5 mg/L (ppm). The test kit contains 50 individually wrapped foil powder pillows with a color chart card for $25.99 each.
