Description: pH Drop Test Kit
One bottle of concentrated reagent for fresh water pH tests
Only one drop per test.
800 tests per bottte
pH scale included range 4.5-10.
Ideal for fresh water aquariums.
Regular testing and maintenance of water parameters is very important for the health of aquarium or pond fish, plants and corals.
Our Quick Drop Test Kits make it easy assess and balance a range of organic and trace compounds helping to maintain a healthy aquarium.
It is a result of normal biological processes that the water in fish tank becomes more acid (low pH over a period of time and the level of phosphates and nitrates increase.)
The pH scale measures how acidic or basic a substance is. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH less than 7 is acidic. A pH greater than 7 is basic.
The pH scale is logarithmic and as a result, each whole pH value below 7 is ten times more acidic than the next higher value. For example, pH 4 is ten times more acidic than pH 5 and 100 times (10 times 10) more acidic than pH 6. The same holds true for pH values above 7, each of which is ten times more alkaline (another way to say basic) than the next lower whole value. For example, pH 10 is ten times more alkaline than pH 9 and 100 times (10 times 10) more alkaline than pH 8.
Pure water is neutral. But when chemicals are mixed with water, the mixture can become either acidic or basic. Examples of acidic substances are vinegar and lemon juice. Lye, milk of magnesia, and ammonia are examples of basic substances.
