Water Easy way to test your water

If anyone is interested in testing your water for chlorine and pH levels and has access to a pool or hot tub test kit it is easy. I tested my water right from the tap and then after putting it through a Brita Filter.

The results were pretty amazing, using a new filter. The chlorine levels were high before (you can smell chlorine in our tap water) and pretty much nil after. The pH levels were very high before and much lower after, showing that most of the limescale was removed. If we don't filter our water the mineral deposits build up very quickly in our kettle.

Remember as the filter is getting close to needing replacing the results won't be quite as dramatic, but still way better than tap water.
