About Your HHWT-12 Instrument
In order to save power, the meter is designed to turn off after 3 minutes (timed from the last button pressed).
Should the meter turn off in the middle of a test, the last stored zero in the meter will remain valid when the
meter is turned on again. Also, the test result is stored in memory for easy retrieval.
The HHWT-12 meter is controlled by three buttons:
1. ZERO/ON:KHQ¿UVWSUHVVHGWKLVEXWWRQWXUQVWKHPHWHURQ:KHQWKHPHWHULVRQDQGWKLVEXWWRQLV
pressed, it zeroes the sample in the cell. Once the meter is zeroed, this zero value applies to all parameters
and is stored and retained even when meter turns off. However, it is recommended that each new water
sample analyzed is zeroed before testing, to maximize sensitivity and accuracy.
2. MENU: With each press, the MENU button advances through the tests in the following sequence: CL1,
NO2, NO3, PH4, BR5, AL6, TH7, CU8, HR9, TR0. Each test menu can store up to 20 results. To retrieve the
stored results, go to the desired test using the MENU key. When the desired test is displayed, press and
hold down the MENU key. Continue holding down the MENU key to scroll the stored results for that test,
starting with the most recent result. The meter will display, from memory, the last 20 readings in sequence
beginning with -20, which is the latest result, followed by -19, which is the 2ndODWHVWUHVXOWHWFDQG¿QDOO\
which is the oldest result retained. Only the last 20 readings are stored in each menu. This meter is able to
store 200 results in memory (20 in each menu).
3. READ: When pressed once, this button starts the timer for the parameter being tested. When pressed a
second time the meter exits the timer and immediately prepares to colorimetrically measure the sample, and
simultaneously stores the measurement in memory.
If the parameter being measured is below or above the detection range, the display will show “LO” (Under
Range) or “HI´2YHU5DQJHUHVSHFWLYHO\7KLVIHDWXUHLVPHQXVSHFL¿FDQGGRHVQRWDSSO\WRDOOSDUDPHWHUV

that the HHWT-12 System repeatedly agrees with an EPA Compliant reference method greater than 99%

This DPD test system is accepted by most health departments because this test is USEPA (DIN
Standard 38 408 G4, ISO 7393/2) accepted for testing requirements for Free and Total Chlorine. The
HHWT-12 meter uses a wavelength of 525nm; and the compliance requirement is that the colorimeter
wavelength is between 490 and 530nm. The HHWT-486637 (DPD-1) uses the same reagents and
SURSRUWLRQVDQGWKHUHVXOWLQJVROXWLRQS+LVPDLQWDLQHGEHWZHHQDQGDVVSHFL¿HGE\$::$
(American Water Works Association) method 4500-Cl G. It should be understood that the USEPA does
not "approve" commercial DPD delivery systems such as reagent powder pillows, tablets, dispensers,
or strip DPD delivery devices. The HHWT-486637 (DPD-1) for Free Chlorine, and the HHWT-486638
(DPD-3) or the HHWT-486670 (DPD-4) for Total Chlorine meet your reportable testing requirements
because each strip delivers the same chemicals in identical proportions (see table below); therefore,
the system is compliant. Likewise, AWWA proportions are followed as required for Total Chlorine
measurements using Potassium Iodide.

Remove and discard the strip when “1” on the display disappears. The cursor will move
across the display while the meter prepares to measure the sample. This result is automatically
stored in CL1 (NOTE: The Iodide added with DPD-3 will, in the presence of Combined Chlorine
or Chloramines, convert into Iodine).
PRESS READ AGAIN
Press READ again and the meter will count down and display the next reading. If this
reading matches the previous result, then record this as the Total Chlorine result. This value
is automatically stored in CL1. After testing is completed, rinse cell immediately. Record the
Total Chlorine as the highest value the meter displayed.
*NOTE: Standard Method (4500-Cl G, procedure for total chlorine) requires the reading to
be made after 2 minutes from the time the KI is added. For compliance testing, you must
time the two minutes and then make your measurement. NOTE: From testing in our lab,
water samples above 70°F (20°C), generally, reach a stabilized reading quicker then 2 minutes.
CL1: Chlorine reacts with N,N-diethyl-p-phenylenediamine as it is released from the strip to form a
magenta color, directly proportional to the Chlorine concentration. (Ozone, Bromine, and Permanganate also form the color)

HHWT-12 Tips For Best Accuracy
1.
Become familiar with the meter and the different tests by reading the instructions carefully.
2.
The Free Chlorine, Combined Chlorine, and Total Chlorine reagents are compliant for meeting
USEPA (4500-Cl G); ISO 7393/2; and German DIN 38408 G4-2 requirements.
3.
Observe the dip time (as required for the test) for accurate results.
4.

Chlorine and Bromine (Ozone can be measured in CL3 MENU).
5.
Be sure the CELL LV¿OOHGWRFDSDFLW\P/HVSHFLDOO\IRUS+DQG7RWDO$ONDOLQLW\
6.
Rinse the CELL with clean water immediately after completing each test. Some reagents may
stain the CELL if not rinsed shortly after use. Other reagents including Cyanuric Acid, Chloride,

Cell Cleaning Brush with water to clean the CELL.
7.
Just before testing, rinse the sample CELL with the sample water several times to get a
representative sample. (Use deionized or distilled water for rinsing if you have a limited amount of
sample).
8.
Store the meter and all test materials out of direct sunlight and away from chemical storage areas.
9.
Minimize exposure of meter and test reagents to heat above 32°C (90°F).
10.
Dry the outside of the meter when testing is complete or before storage of the meter.
11.

Each test strip is valid for ONLY one test. Discard strip after single use in regular refuse that is
inaccessible to children and pets.
13.

accuracy when testing with the meter outdoors (sunlight), use the Mixing Cap/Cell Cover when
zeroing and reading the sample.

18.
For Nitrate tests, the cell should be cleaned after each experiment with brush and distilled water.
This is very IMPORTANT. If any zinc dust is adhering to the cell wall, it will affect the results.
Finally, wash the sample three to four times before the measurement starts.

stained or cloudy from repeated testing, or when the meter does not blank when you press the ZERO/ON
button, the cell needs to be cleaned. Clean as follows)LOOFHOOZLWKFOHDQZDWHUDQGPRYHWKHCell
cleaning brush up-and-down and back-and-forth along the walls of the cell. Afterwards, rinse the cell and
the meter is ready for use again. Cleaning the cell regularly is especially recommended after you run a
test that is using turbidity or precipitation chemistry for analysis (Calcium Hardness and Cyanuric Acid).
To Install/Replace “AAA” Batteries:
1. Unscrew the O-ring sealed battery cover counter-clockwise. Use proper sized pliers if necessary.
Do not disturb the sealing O-ring. Batteries are not included.
2. Remove the used batteries and install 4 new AAA batteries following the diagram for
correct polarity (see diagram). We recommend high quality AAA alkaline batteries be used.
4. Replace the battery cover. Be sure to tighten the cover securely. This is necessary for meter to
be waterproof.
5. Dispose of the used batteries in accordance with your
local regulations.
