North Carolina Child Care
Sanitation Rules Amendment
"Daycare Test Strips"
As of January 1, 2006, all licensed, non-in-home daycare centers in the State of North
Carolina had to have the ability to test the chlorine bleach content in both their
sanitizing and their disinfecting solutions. Previously
the law stated that they had to test only the chlorine concentration in their
Chlorine concentrations in disinfecting solutions have to
fall between 500 ppm and 800 ppm free chlorine and the test strips previously
used by child care and daycare facilities only had to read free chlorine
concentrations in the range of 50 ppm free chlorine to 200 ppm free chlorine.
Several test strip manufacturers attempted to address this (relatively)
new testing need but only the WaterWorks Free Chlorine Check Ultra High II
fully satisfies it.
Waterworks Free Chlorine Check Ultra High II has an easy-to-read color chart with acceptable chlorine concentration levels and instructions for mixing BOTH chlorine solutions clearly marked on each bottle.
To make life even easier on daycare and child care center operators, they may also purchase a Daycare Kit (click for picture) which includes (3) bottles of their North Carolina Licensed Child Care Association approved test strips (total of 300 tests!), quarter cup and tablespoon measuring devices (for proper on-site metering of the bleach), and a copy of the procedures North Carolina wants child care workers to follow when mixing their sanitizing and disinfection solutions.
