The JBL ProAquaTest Pond Check pH/KH provides an easy to use test kit for accurately determining the pH and KH values within the pond. Carbonate hardness or KH indicates the sum of carbonates and hydrogen carbonates with in the water. These minerals can bind acids and bases and thus stabilise the pH value in the desired range. With KH values below 4°dKH, the pH value is not stable and fluctuates greatly between 6 and 12. These strong fluctuations affect all organisms in the pond.
The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and plants in the pond. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. Poor water quality parameters can result in disease, algae issue and even fish fatalities. To maintain a healthy pond with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.
Why is Testing Needed?
The well-being of pond dwellers and the growth of aquatic plants depend to a large extent on the pH level being kept as constant as possible. Many substances dissolved in water are also liable to changes caused by the pH level. Fluctuations in the pH level, in particular, ought to be avoided.
Fill the measuring tubes with pond water, add 5 drops of reagent to each, swivel gently until the colouring stabilises, wait 1 minute, compare colouring on colour chart.
