Does Heavy Metals Check Test for Nickel?

By | January 11, 2017

We recently got asked if the  SenSafe Heavy Metals Check product detect Nickel... and it does, but with the following caveat:  This product DOES detect nickel, but at the same time it also detects other metals and therefore provides a combined reading of all metals it detects.

Example: If the sample contained 60ppb dissolved nickel, 40ppb dissolved  iron, 100 ppb dissolved copper... this test strip would give a reading of 200ppb. It would not, however, identify individual metals detected or their individual concentrations.

Detailed water analysis including metals

To get a better, more detailed analysis of potential water contaminants including dissolved metals we suggest taking a look at the mail-in water testing services of  National Testing Laboratories.  You can select from a number of water testing packages ranging from 'basic' to 'advanced' and test results typically come back in approximately 10 business days.
