Water quality is critical to the effectiveness  of chemical cleaning agents in any wash.

Water hardness and pH levels can impact dramatically on the effectiveness and release ​of detergent molecules and enzymes within the wash process.

Hard water can lead to staining and pitting of surgical instruments being washed.

Whereas an improper pH level can lead to the partial or complete inactivation of the enzymes relied upon to breakdown the soil on instruments during the wash cycle.

The AquaTest easily and rapidly assesses water quality in terms of pH levels, alkalinity and hardness. ​
With the easy to interpret colour change these values can be measured and recorded for thorough documentation of water quality.
