Quickly and accurately measures the pH of pond water, reading pH levels from 5.0 to 9.0. Makes 160 tests. Prevents the harmful effects of too alkaline/too acidic pond water resulting from minerals found in tap water, high ammonia levels in the pond, rain runoff or overstocking of pond fish. Includes test solution, glass test tube w/ cap, color chart & instructions.
How often should I test pH?
Regular testing is necessary to make sure the pH level is safe. Pond water should be tested for once a week.
When is the best time to check the pH?
The best time to check the pH is in the morning. As the sun comes up and the plants begin photosynthesis the pH will rise. If the water sample is taken during a sunny period the pH will always be high due to the temporary action of the plants. Therefore the best time to test pH is in the morning.
