Product information

Healthy aquariums with conditions modelled on nature
The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and plants in the aquarium. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. With poor values diseases or algae can appear in the aquarium. To maintain a healthy aquarium with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.

Water analysis using your smartphone – the new generation

Fast diagnosis - precise results
Download the JBL app free of charge, follow the app’s instructions, immerse the test strip into the aquarium water, position the test strip on the JBL colour chart for the analysis, scan colour chart, values will be determined, individual solution recommendations and tips will be transmitted.

The JBL ProScan app is available in the following languages: de, en, fr, nl, es, it, pt, ru, cs, pl, tr and ja.

Note: The test strips are only suitable for one measurement each. A repeated scan of the strip will lead to different values, since the strip goes on reacting indefinitely.

During the analysis "aquarium freshwater" and "water" the current CO2 content in the water will be calculated as an additional bonus. Depending on the analysis results in the sections “Aquarium Freshwater” and “Garden Pond” individualized recommendations and hints will be transmitted as to which JBL products will help to set the ideal/optimal water values.

FAQ
Why can't I register / log in to the app anymore even though my data is correct?

Please use your username and password to log in to the app. The email address will not be accepted as username. Make sure beforehand that you have already created a myJBL profile.

The measurements are not transmitted - error during data transfer

If your new measurements cannot be successfully transferred, it is probably because your access data has changed. Each measurement is linked to its user's record on the creation date. If the measurement is not transferred (missing Internet connection) and your access data changes (password changed), this error occurs. Solution: Please delete the app, confirm the removal of the locally saved data and reinstall the app. If you now log in, your profiles will be downloaded and with the first addition of a new, further measurement you will also see your old measurements in the app again. On the JBL website you can view and compare all the measurements you have saved at any time under myJBL --> My analyses.

The latest measurements on your smartphone after the initial setup

If you go on our website to view the profiles online under myJBL --> myAnalyses, you will find all the measurements here. As soon as you log yourself in again with your smartphone and add a new measurement to the relevant profile, the 4 latest measurements will also be downloaded from the cloud and will be available again on the smartphone.

After using the ProScan app my JBL account is locked

Please log out from the ProScan app. Either ask the help desk to unlock your account or change your password. Now you can register again to return to the app.
Why did it happen? Old unsynchronised measurements are being transferred with the old access data. The app offers a data reconciliation in the background. After repeated data reconciliation attempts your access gets blocked for security reasons. Please do not change your data until all the measurements have been transferred from the app.
The easiest way to prevent such problems when changing the access data is to log out from the app.

Can I print out my ColorCard myself?

Unfortunately it is not possible to print the ColorCard of ProScan yourself. It is produced by means of a special printing process and afterwards tested on a special device for colour fastness.
Only this way can we guarantee the high accuracy of measurements made with the ProScan test kits.
