Test high resolution for determination of carbonate hardness
The alkalinity characterizes the capacity buffer, ie the capacity necessary to maintain the pH of seawater. It is formed through the amount of hydrogen carbonates present in the water and with the increase of the pH value also by the hydroxide ions. A quantity of hydrogen carbonates too low can result in a decrease in the pH value, dangerous to the lives of many fish and invertebrates.
Aquarium seawater alkalinity should range between 8 and 12˚ dKH (German degrees of carbonate).
The new test KH Professional Tropic Marin is one of the most precise and allows you to determine the value of kh with a resolution up to 0.1 ° dH.
L 'high accuracy is given by' using a 1 ml syringe with a graduated scale marked in values 0,01ml. The color changes rapidly from turquoise to pink and is easily visible.
The content is sufficient for about 100 test at a resolution of 0.2 ° dH in water with 10 ° dH or 50 tests at a resolution of 0.1 ° dH in water with 10 ° dH.
Measures to be taken in case of unwanted values:
There are several ways to soften the water when the carbonate hardness is too high (above 18 DKH). Consult your dealer in aquarium. When the values are too low advise Tropic Marin Triple Buffer to adjust optimally the alkalinity and pH of seawater.
