Alkalinity Tablets Packaging Change

There has been a change in the packaging of the BCG-MR Indicator Tablets (order code T-2311-J).  The tablets for the Total Alkalinity test are now being packaged in blister packs (as seen below) rather than in a glass bottle. The order code for the tablets has also slightly changed, to T-2311-A.

The change is intended to extend the shelf life and prevent tablets from breaking apart due to moisture.

The box the blister packs come in (see image above) is identical to the box used for the Hardness #6 Tablets and can fit into AWW Kits if laid on their side and placed on top of the turbidity tubes (right photo below).

We recommend that you take out one set of 10 tablets (pictured left, below), label them for the test they are used for (Hardness or Alkalinity) and place them in your kit.

Please contact the AWW Office with any other questions or concerns.
