|Home water tester for Ph and chlorides?
|Posted on Thursday, November 12, 2009 - 12:55 pm: ||
In the tech article on saltwater corrosion in old marine engines, Mark Stretch mentioned testing for Ph and chloride concentration during the desalting process.
Does anyone know if a home water tester is available that tests these two items in the range that was mentioned in the article?

There are a few ways of doing this. However I have some test strips that were given to me, these are simpler than measuring chemicals and counting drops/noting color changes.
The chloride ones look similar to these http://www.professionalequipment.com/water-quality-test-strips-waterworks-chlori de-check-480127/water-quality-testing/
The ph strips I have are on a roll, you just tear a piece off. I can't see these on this site but I'm sure that they must have them as my understanding is that they are a heavily used consumeable item in any lab.
You may need to check with any supplier if the chloride test is suitable for the ph range you have.

An aquarium store may handle pH strips.

John is correct, any good fish store, or online supplier will have the ph strips
