Question
What can be used in place of RegenVer Hardness reagent that has been discontinued?
Summary
Replacement for RegenVer Hardness reagent
Answer
The REGENEVER HARDNESS RGT, 100 ML (Product # 21053 and 21032H) included a buffer, indicator, and titrant all in one solution. When added to a sample, a red color would form if the sample contained more than 1 gpg hardness (as CaCO3). If red, more RegeneVer was added until the sample turned blue. Each drop was equivalent to 1 gpg hardness. This reagent was discontinued in January 2004.

Other hardness reagents and test kits are available that can be used in place of RegeneVer. The Total Hardness Test Kit, Model 5-B (Product # 145300) and the Total Hardness Test Kit, Model  5-EP (Product # 145400) use UniVer®3 reagent and a titrant solution. If the sample turns blue after adding UniVer®3, the water is soft. If the sample turns red, add drops of the titrant until the sample turns blue to find the hardness concentration.
