SimplexHealth Total Hardness test strips are perfect to test the hardness of your water, to check the performance of your water softener, for service work, classroom demonstrations, or to give to customers instead of an expensive service call.

(ppm = parts per million)
The definition of water hardness is based on the amount of calcium it contains per litre:
- Soft water contains less than 30mg of calcium per litre (less than 30ppm)
- Moderately hard water contains between 30 and 60mg (30 to 60ppm)
- Hard water between 60 and 120mg (60 to 120ppm)
- Very hard water contains more than 120mg of calcium per litre (more than 120ppm)
