Water Test ”For Dummies“

While the title of the well-known book series may suggest the opposite, these books are actually full of excellent explanations for complicated facts. And that’s exactly what we also want to try and do, because the subject of water test/water chemistry puts a lot of people off.

JBL PONDCHECK

In only a few minutes this rapid test will help you to determine whether your pond water is stable (carbonate hardness, if there is sufficient mineral content) and within which range the pH level (acidity) is. For this simple test you don’t need to have studied chemistry to check two important water parameters, whether their values are okay or not.

JBL Phosphate Test Koi

Phosphates dissolved in the water promote unwanted algae growth. With the help of this water test you can find out within 5 minutes how high the phosphate content of your pond water is. For values over 0.25 mg/l you require a phosphate remover to lower the phosphate content. While using the phosphate removers, continue to monitor the results.
