Italian term or phrase: grado solfidrometrico
Hi folks,
I am checking a cosmetics text describing some kind of spa water in a spray delivery system. Grado solfidrometrico (H2S 6,2)seems to be a specification used for spa waters with sulphur contents but I can find no equivalent in English.
Thanks in advance to all those expert chemists and spa bathers out there...!

hydrogen sulfide level
Explanation:
From a site about drinking water:

"Paula P's well water, on the other hand, has significant levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). H2S is not a dissolved mineral, it
is a dissolved gas....it smells like rotten eggs..."

6,2 would be 62 cc H2S per liter.

Don't I wish I were at a spa bath:-)
