Water Finding Paste

Water Finding Paste


The control of water in petrols, paraffins and diesel is nothing short of vital when ensuring correct stock control, stock security, product quality and customer satisfaction. Here is all you need to know about this innovative water finding solution:


Our Water Finders are presented in a carton containing 12 x 70 gram tubes.


Smeared onto the bottom of a dip stick or tape, the Water Finder will change from pink to green if water is detected.


Dipping time is approximately 10 minutes. Thereafter any water in the tank will be indicated by the clear change in colour.

Alcohol/Petrol Blends

Extend dipping times to 30 seconds to detect excessive alcohol drop out in water. Where alcohol drop-out is more than 50%, a dipping time of 60 seconds should be allowed. The depth of the alcohol water mixture, dependant on the mix, will be either indicated by a change of colour from green to pink or by a complete wash off of the water finder paste from the dipstick or tape.

Crude Oil

Sludge levels may be determined by dipping for a period of 30 seconds and then rinsing the dip tape in a solvent such as petrol. The sludge level will be indicated by a change in colour from green to pink.


It is important to understand that water in contact with diesel promotes the growth of “bugs”, which can result in filter blockages in diesel engines. To ensure product quality, customer satisfaction and more, click here and make a product enquiry today.
