Professional mixture of pure salts without chemical additives, present in seawater in a the concentration >0,1 mg/L
Xaqua DNA salt is a unique product. The study, the research and the tests conducted in laboratories and in our marine systems, have brought Xaqua to develop an innovative product with unique characteristics. The quality and the correct composition of salt water are the essential conditions for a proper maintenance of a coral reef aquarium.
The formulation of this product is obtained following accurate research criteria. The chemical structure of Xaqua DNA Salt is perfectly balanced. Formulating a sea salt with different values from the natural ones leads to a wrong ionic balance with important consequences on the stability and the maintenance of chemical values. Quality and use of certified raw materials are the first requirements of Xaqua for the production of all its products. Xaqua salt is a mixture of qualified salts of analytical pharmaceutical grade, with a percentage of certified pureness higher than 99.5%.The use of pure raw materials allows to obtain a final product of excellent quality, with constant physico-chemical properties and always unchanged chimical values.Thanks to the purity of the salts used (they do not contain chemical residues and contaminants), Xaqua DNA Salt allows you to get pure sea water, free of deposits. Dna salt is ready to be used with all types of fish and corals. Thanks to the perfectly balanced chemical structure, the solubility of the product entering in contact with water is immediate.The solution that you will obtain is clear, free of deposits and of calcareous precipitations, deriving from an incorrect relationship between the salts and from the presence of chemical additivies such as silicon dioxide.
The Preparation of Xaqua salt is made in the laboratory, using high precision weighing and mixing tools, at controlled temperatures and humidity. To garantee the quality of the product and the same chimical values, the mixing of the salt is made inside each single package. Only this procedure ensures an homogeneous product with constant chemical values. The package is made of double layer of aluminium coated by a protective film and is closable with a special hermetically sealed system which guarantees the correct preservation of the product until the last use. To guarantee an excellent product, the packaging is done in a controlled atmosphere.
Dosage 36-38 gr per liter of water, depending on the desired density.
Prepare the quantity of osmotic water that must be treated in a well cleaned container.
Bring water to a temperature of about 23-25 ° C.
It's important, during the preparation of the solution, not to subjecting the salt to thermal stress. Turn off the heater before dosing the salt and avoid that the pump sucks the salt in suspension into the rotor.
Use a blade stirrer or a small pump to allow a rapid and proper mixing of the product with water, then dose the amount of salt which is need to obtain the desired solution. When the salt will be completely dissolved and the water will be clear, after about 15-30 minutes, turn off the pump and use the water within the next 12 hours.
The utilization of 38g/L of Xaqua Salt allows to obtain the same values to those found in nature in most of the tropical seawaters:
Carbonate hardness 6-7 ° dKh
Calcium 420 mg/L
Magnesium 1350 mg/L
Potassium 380 mg/L
Strontium 8 mg/ L
Boro 4.6 mg/L
Sulfur 885 mg/L
Fluoride 1.3 mg/L
Bromo 6.5 mg/L
To compensate for the rest of the missing salts present in tropical seawater in a quantity < 0,1 mg/L it is necessary to use the liquid product called Xaqua DNA MINERALS. A quantity of this chimical values > 0,1 mg/L doesn't garantee the homogeneity of the product.
