A plethora of health-related problems afflict many people living in Africa and many of those health conditions stem from the fact that the continent lacks an infrastructure capable of delivering clean, safe drinking water to many of its residents.
With that in mind, please excuse our departure from the normal subject matter and indulge us as we answer a question about purchasing DPD test tablets for chlorine testing in Zambia, an African Nation.
“Robert K” asked…
I need to know if there is company in Zambia or Sub-sahara Africa selling DPD #1 tablets.
This is a very informative site, keep it up
Thank you, Robert, for contacting Water Testing Blog with this question. We don’t know a whole lot about companies doing business with other areas of the world such as Zambia, but we did find a few links that may prove useful information.
