ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- CARBONATE HARNDESS

The alkalinity of a solution refers to its capacity to buffer against drops in pH. It is a measure of the concentration of various negatively charged ionic compounds (anions) such as carbonates, bicarbonates, borates and hydroxides in the aquarium water. The concentration of these ions determines the buffering capacity of the water to maintain proper pH. If the percentage of the hydrogen carbonate and carbonate ions is too low, the pH value of the water may drop severely (acidity drop) causing a life threatening condition for many plants, invertebrates and fish.

The ideal value of KH in a saltwater aquarium is 7-10 dKH° and for a planted freshwater aquarium is 3-7 dKH°.

Because of the importance of KH, it is necessary to keep the proper KH level by testing it with an accurate test kit. ELOS AquaTest KH, as well as all the other titrimetric test kits of this line will grant very high precision thanks to several procedures like the use of calibrated droppers with constant and predefined drops of 0.05 ml each, the validation of our reagents through NIST (National Institure of Standard and Technology) validation and the careful stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • High precision: thanks to the use of calibrated droppers
  • NIST validation: each batch is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples.
  • High number of test per kit: up to 60 test (with a standard level of 10 dKH)
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

    Great kit! Product Review by RYAN HELMUTH (Posted on 5/20/08)

    Comments: Great test kit. Never can go wrong with elos!!! With the way the instructions read, you get a alk value in whole numbers. If you want more accuracy, all you have to do is double the amount of water, and then each drop is worth half as much!

    Comments: This is the best KH test kit I've used. It's inexpensive,
    easy to use, easy to read and accurate. For most tests, the full 1 degree result is OK and can easily be
    converted to 1/2 degree. I now use one test for both my tank and my calcium reactor.

    Comments: Was having hard time locating Salifert test kit, so Elos was recommended by a friend. This kit imo is better than Salifert. Easy to use & accurate.
