Mercury is a liquid metal found in natural deposits such as ores containing other elements. Low levels of mercury may occur naturally in water after it has passed through various mineral deposists and rock strata. Electrical products such as dry-cell batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, switches, and other control equipment also account for 50 percent of mercury used. It is regulated in drinking water to protect public health, long-term exposure may lead to kidney damage and other serious health problems.

This Mercury Test Kit for water quality testing is a quick and easy method to test for levels of Mercury ion Hg+2. The Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for Mercury set by the EU and UK Drinking Water Standards is 1.0µg/l or 1.0ppb (= 0.001 ppm).

This test detects Mercury from the ranges of 0-1000 ppb (= 0 – 1ppm). It is great for process testing and ideal for detecting higher & unsafe levels of mercury in drinking water. This mercury test is one of the most efficient and cost effective methods on the market to test for Mercury and ensure your water is safe.
