This is one of two kits we are offering which do not comply with the original aim of this project; that of having inexpensive kits which enable the user to produce lab quality results with no technical skills. This kit is comparatively expensive but it does meet the other criteria, giving accurate results without specific technical skills.
In surface water, the presence of high phosphate concentrations may indicate domestic waste discharge, fertilizer runoff or the presence of industrial effluents or detergents. The phosphate content of surface water has direct consequences for its ability to support growth of certain organisms. The major consequences for this is blue/green algae which chocks of Australian rivers in times of drought. The blue/green algae can be identifier of the presence of phosphates.
To perform a test, immerse the CHEMet ampoule into the sample and snap off the tip the correct volume of sample is automatically drawn in, filling the ampoule; a small inert gas bubble remains in the ampoule. To facilitate mixing the sample and reagent, tilt the ampoule back and forth so the bubble travels from end to end. In 2 minutes or less, quantify the result by comparing the filled ampoule to the appropriate color standards. For higher concentrations, the flat comparator is used. For lower concentrations, the round comparator is used. The ampoule is compared with the standards until a color match is found.
Kits include 30 ampoules, comparators, accessory solution, a sample cup, and instructions. Refill packs of 30 ampoules and accessory solutions are available separately.
Comparators have a 2-year shelf life. Material Safety Data Sheets are provided in test kits.
