When you hear the word 'buffer', what do you usually think of? You might think of a physical barrier that lessens the impact of something, so that the result is less harm for everyone involved, with the buffer taking most of the force.
Chemical buffers work more or less the same way. They keep the pH levels at a constant value -- or at least, as nearly constant. In an aquarium where so many things can affect the alkalinity of the water, it's important that you have a buffer like the Kent Marine Super Buffer DKH to come in the middle and get the balance back.
The Kent Marine Super Buffer DKH Pet Store is especially formulated to keep pH levels within the range of 8.0-8.3. It also builds up KH levels, which is the measurement for carbonate hardness.
When mixed with the water, this buffer does not leave residue in any way. It doesn't make the water cloudy. It also doesn't harm corals or any other aquatic creatures. It's completely safe to use in marine aquariums. It can even work with other Kent Marine's chemical products at the same time. It doesn't react to the presence of other chemicals in a harmful way.
Description: Kent Superbuffer-dKH is a specially formulated pH buffer and alkalinity or carbonate hardness (KH) builder, designed to adjust the pH of saltwater aquariums to the range of 8.0 to 8.3 and build the KH. Superbuffer-dKH is the finest buffer available for either fish only or reef type marine aquariums and is designed to mix clear with little or no cloudiness or precipitation. Will not flake on your corals as other competing products can! Compatible with and designed for use with Kalkwasser Mix, Concentrated Liquid Calcium, or Turbo-Calcium by Kent Marine.
