What does it measure?

  • Carbonate hardness (KH) - Represents the hydrogen carbonate concentration which acts as a PH-buffer. A stable buffer capacity will be achieved by KH values >= 6&degdH. It's very important for stable water values to prevent a sudden drop in acid content. Treatments are available to help stabilise the KH and PH levels.

  • Phosphate - Build up of phosphates are an ongoing cycle in ponds and aquariums due to fish food and the decomposing process of organic matter. A partial water change is required if levels are too high. Treatment is also available to prevent levels getting too high. levels of < 2mg/L is desirable

  • Nitrate - An organic substance derived from nitrites which originate from fish excrement and decaying food. Nitrate can promote algae growth when found in quantities greater than 50mg/L in aquariums and 10mg/L in ponds. Good plant growth can help reduce nitrates. A partial water change should also be carried out if values are high. Aquatic plants are a good way to naturally reduce nitrate levels.
