Tracer Dyes

About Tracer Dyes

Tracer dyes are commonly used for tracing water leaks, irrigation lines, fertilizer systems, etc., and are generally used at the rate of 1-5 parts per million. The Rhodamine and Uranine dyes are very well suited for tracing since they are fluorescent and can be detected with a black light.
