Boris' Mercury Detection Range:
- Detection Range: 0, 0.002, 0.005, 0.01, 0.02, 0.04, 0.08 ppm (mg/L)
Advantages of Boris' Mercury Test Strips:
Testing requires only 200 mL of sample, or approximately 7 ounces, and the indicators safely contained on the test area have no known interferences that would give false positive or negative readings.
While other test methods for dissolved mercury in water require the use of complicated test procedures and/or potentially hazardous chemicals, Boris' Mercury Test Strips have no chemicals to mix or hard-to-follow instructions to follow.
Simply dip the strip for 60 seconds, remove the strip, shake excess water off the strip, wait 30 seconds, and compare toe color of the test area to the color blocks on the bottle label.
What is USEPA's Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for dissolved Mercury in Water?
At this time the USEPA has determined that a municipal water system must take immediate action if dissolved mercury levels in the water they supply their cutomers reaches or exceeds 2 ppb (or .002 ppm).
Note that Boris' Mercury can detect that level -- and does so in just one and a half minutes!
