Kent Marine Superbuffer dKH Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Description:
Kent Superbuffer-dKH is a specially formulated pH buffer and alkalinity or carbonate hardness (KH) builder, designed to adjust the pH of saltwater aquariums to the range of 8.0 to 8.3 and build the KH. Superbuffer-dKH is the finest buffer available for either fish only or reef type marine aquariums and is designed to mix clear with little or no cloudiness or precipitation. Will not flake on your corals as other competing products can! Compatible with and designed for use with Kalkwasser Mix, Concentrated Liquid Calcium, or Turbo-Calcium by Kent Marine.

Directions:
Dissolve one teaspoon of Superbuffer-dKH in a glass of fresh water. Add directly to tank or sump for each 20-30 gallons (80 liters) of tank capacity each day until the desired pH and alkalinity (carbonate hardness or KH) are reached. Wait 1 hour to remeasure alkalinity, but wait 24 hours for pH to stabilize, before re-measuring (full pH increase and stabilization may take up to 48 hours!). This product is designed for reefs and may be used in fish only marine systems also.

Considerations for use:
A pH of 8.0 to 8.3 and an alkalinity of 2.9 to 4.0 meq/L (8 to 11 dKH) is recommended, with 3.4 meq/L (9.5 dKH) being optimum. (Fish only tanks should maintain 3.5 to 4.5 meq/L (or 10 to 12 dKH). After target pH and alkalinity are reached, use at 2 week intervals to maintain values. Use Kent Marine Essential Elements weekly to provide proper trace minerals. Kent Marine Zoe added to food will supply needed vitamins. In reef systems, use Kent Kalkwasser Mix, Concentrated Liquid Calcium, or Turbo-Calcium to provide calcium and Strontium and Molybdenum Supplement or Turbo-Strontium to provide necessary strontium for the invertebrates.

Precautions:
Contains carbonate, bicarbonate, and borate salts. Do not taste, swallow or breathe.

First Aid: If in eyes, immediately flush with water for 15 minutes. If ingested, drink water. Call a physician immediately! Contact with skin may cause dryness or irritation. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN!

Comments: The instructions say to put an appropriate amount into a glass of water and add daily. I wanted to use a dosing pump to do that, but the buffer precipitaed out of solution. I had to put a small Rio pump into the container to keep it mixed up. Seems to be working.

Comments: Kent Marine Superbuffer is a solid product. I have been adding a small dose daily to my reef tank for the last 6 years, and the water chemistry has always been solid (no fluctuations). I'm very happy with this product, and will continue to use it for years to come.

Comments: Busy people don't always have time to do all the maintenance that fish tanks take to keep up high quality water. This stuff makes it so easy to maintain good water pH and keep it there with minimal effort. Been using it for years in fish only and reef tanks. Great stuff!
