Chlorine Test Strips; Childcare, 0-2000ppm, ~100 strips/pack
The color chart has ranges for sanitization (50-200ppm) & disinfection (500-800ppm). 800ppm is considered the maximum level for child safety in the event of ingestion.
You can use our bleach dilution calculator to correctly calculate the amount of bleach & water needed to prepare the ppm levels indicated above. This calculator will allow for any concentration of chlorine bleach to be used to prepare a sanitizing/disinfecting solution but in this instance the video shows an 8.25% solution diluted to produce 650ppm (the midway point of 500-800ppm for disinfection as shown on the color chart).

Note(1): If vial is properly stoppered, strips have a 2 year shelf life.

The following table shows how much bleach is needed to make up different concentrations of disinfectant based on an initial concentration of 5% (most store bought bleach sold in North America is rated at 5.25% but loses strength with time).
