Trans-1,4-Dichloro-2-butene appears as a clear colorless liquid. Safe Home offers a few kits that provide drinking water testing for Trans-1,4-Dichloro-2-butene in city and well water supplies.

Parameter Type: Drinking Water Testing for Volatiles

Parameter Name: Trans-1,4-Dichloro-2-butene

What it is and Where it Comes From:

1,4-dichloro-2-butene appears as a clear colorless liquid with a distinct odor. Trans-1,4-Dichlorobutene is an organochlorine compound. It can burn but may be difficult to ignite. 1,4-dichloro-2-butene is corrosive to tissue, denser than water, insoluble in water, and used to make other chemicals. Drinking water testing gives you several benefits like peace of mind, identifying contaminants in your water, and insight into health concerns. Safe Home offers Laboratory drinking water testing kits for Trans-1,4-Dichloro-2-butene, allowing you to collect your water sample and ship it directly to our EPA-Certified Laboratory. This platform of drinking water testing for Trans-1,4-Dichloro-2-butene will give you an accurate level based on the lowest level of a parameter our instruments can detect (Method Detection Level). Safe Home drinking water testing for volatiles can be used for city and well water supplies. Drinking water testing should be done any time you notice a significant change in your water quality.

Health Effects:

While trans-1,4-dichloro-2-butene has been tested, it is not classifiable as to its potential to cause cancer. According to the information presently available trans-1,4-dichloro-2-butene has not been tested for its ability to affect reproduction. Trans-1,4-dichloro-2-butene can irritate the lungs. Repeated exposure may cause bronchitis to develop with cough, phlegm, and/or shortness of breath. Prolonged exposure to trans-1,4-dichloro- 2-butene can cause drying and cracking of the skin with redness and water blisters.

Solutions to Contaminant Levels:

After drinking water testing, how can I remove Trans-1,4-Dichloro-2-butene from my water? Reverse osmosis is a process that removes foreign contaminants, solid substances, large molecules, and minerals from water by using pressure to push it through specialized membranes. Here’s how reverse osmosis works. Unlike osmosis, which is a passive process, reverse osmosis requires external force (pressure) to work. Pressure is applied to a highly concentrated solute solution, such as salt water, to pass through a membrane to a lower concentrate solution. The membrane allows water to flow through but blocks out larger molecules, like contaminants. The reverse osmosis process leaves higher concentrations of solute on one side and only the solvent, or freshwater, on the other. Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove impurities from a fluid using adsorption. Carbon filtering works by adsorption, in which pollutants in the fluid to be treated are trapped inside the pore structure of a carbon substrate. The substrate is made of many carbon granules, each of which is itself highly porous. As a result, the substrate has a large surface area within which contaminants can be trapped. Activated carbon is typically used in filters, as it has been treated to have a much higher surface area than non-treated carbon. Drinking water testing should be done once at least once a year to monitor contaminants in water supplies. Who do I need to contact to find out more information about water quality in my area? Every community water supplier must provide an annual report to its customers, known as a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). The report provides information on your local drinking water quality, including the water’s source, contaminants found in the water, and how consumers can get involved in protecting drinking water. How often does the local public water system preform drinking water testing? Frequency of drinking water testing depends on the number of people served, the type of water source, and types of contaminants. Certain contaminants are tested more frequently than others, as established by the Safe Drinking Water Act. You can find out about levels of regulated contaminants in your treated water for the previous calendar year in your annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
