Tropic Marin KH Saltwater Test Kit

TP4121

This item has been discontinued.

Tropic Marin For the determination of the carbonate hardness or the alkalinity in seawater.

The carbonate hardness or alkalinity corresponds to the buffer capacity of the aquarium water and therefore determines the stability of the pH-value in the water. With these tests the carbonate hardness and alkalinity can be measured with precision in °dKH. The test liquids show a pronounced and obvious color change and are sufficient for approx. 100 tests.

Tropic Marin
Tropic Marin: A strong foundation in science and hobby: The successful methods and techniques of today`s marine aquarists are the result of a close collaboration between serious hobbyists, scientists and specialists at public aquariums. Tropic Marin came about in exactly the same way over 30 years ago! This close cooperation resulted in one of the first complete one-part synthetic marine salt mixtures that provided the optimum natural environment for the professional as well as the private aquarist.

alk test

REVIEW
I would rather have a glass test tube with 5 & 10 ML marks than to use a syringe. Luckily I have one from another kit. The actual test works very well and is easy to do.

Dropper is the worst

REVIEW
The kit is good overall, the color change is spot on and easy to read. The bottle leaks so some drops my stray when turning the bottle over to drop into the vial. Once the first drop leaks out, the others are a little easier to manage.

Great Test Kit

REVIEW
Alk is really important in a reef tank. Especially an SPS dominated tank. Low or swinging Alk can cause poor colors. This is an easy to use test kit so it makes the chore of testing your Alkalinity easy.

GREAT

REVIEW
SUPER easy test. I normally use the Elos but since I lost my job I have to save money where I can so I tried this and I will be staying with it, even when I get a job. Color changes are instant and extremely east to see. The change from green to red is as drastic as a stoplight.

Easy to use but...

REVIEW
This test kit is incredibly easy to use but it only measure DKH in increments of 1.0 DKH. This would be perfect of they let you measure DKH in increments of at least 0.5 to ensure a more accurate reading.
