The Palintest Alkaphot test is based on a unique colorimetric method and uses a single tablet reagent. The test is simply carried out by adding a tablet to a sample of the water. Under the conditions of the test, a distinctive range of colours from yellow, through green, to blue is produced over the alkalinity range 0 - 500 mg/L CaCO3. The colour produced in the test is indicative of the alkalinity of the water and is measured using a Palintest Photometer.
