Repco Brake Fluid Tester

The Repco RST239 Brake Fluid tester quickly identifies the percentage of water in brake fluid, letting you know the condition of your brake fluid and prompting to change your brake fluid if it's been compromised by water. This is a great tool for looking after the variety of cars in your garage, keep it in the tool box along with all your other specialty automotive tools. Water accumulates in brake fluid over time due to being hydroscopic. The problem with water in the brake fluid is it brings down the boiling point. Bringing the boiling point down results in drastically reduced braking performance after every stop. Just 3 percent of water in your brake fluid can bring the boiling point down 100 degrees. Not only is water bad for brake performance, but it also begins to corrode your braking components internally, and if not maintained correctly can cause you to replace your master cylinder, brake lines and rebuild your calipers. The RST239 Repco Brake Fluid Tester is suitable for DOT 3, DOT 4 and DOT5.1 brake fluid. The Colour coded LEDs show the level of water in the brake fluid.
