There are very few non laboratory tests for oil/hydrocarbon contamination of water sources, this is one of the better ones. This test paper should be used as a present/not present test, but it produces rapid and reliable detection of oilcontaminations of water. The sensitivity largely depends on the nature of the respective hydrocarbon - for detection limits see the table supplied with the kit. For detection of oil in water, move the paper back and forth a few times in the sample. The blue colour of the paper comes more intense the more oil/hydrocarbon is present.
