Elos Aqua Test Kit - pH Freshwater Information

Product Manuals & Documentation


The ph-value or acid value indicates how acidic or alkaline the water is. It is the measure of the concentration of the acidic or alkaline components in a hydrous solution. Pure water will react neutral and has a pH value of 7.0. If the acidic components are predominant, the pH value will drop below 7.0. If the basic components are predominate, the pH value will rise above 7.0.

In freshwater aquariums, when not dedicated to Malawi cichlids etc., the optimum pH value is between 6.2 and 7.2 which are found in natural water. Many organisms are very sensitivity to large variations of the pH-value, so large swings should be avoided.

ELOS AquaTest pHD, as well as all the other colorimetric test kit of this line, grant very high precision thanks to several procedures like the use of “RealColor” technology, an accurate system to calibrate the color chart compared to the reagents; the validation of each reagent with NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples and the careful stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch.


  • Easyreading: “RealColor”technology.
  • High precision: thanks to the use of calibrated droppers
  • NISTvalidation: each batch of elos reagents is validated using NIST(National Instituteof Standardand Technology) samples
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

    Comments: The PH Freshwater seems to be accurate, but I have not verified the testing. The one problem that this testing kit brings is the lack of a scale in the higher range. Some of fish that I keep have a need for a PH above 8.3, which is the limit of this particular testing kit. This is the reason that I have not given the Elos Aqua Test Kit for PH a five star rating. Other minor problems that I have encountered with this test is that the water drawing syringe is hard to read, and there isn't a marked level on the test tube. The test kit is also a little expensive. Basically I am satisfied with this company and the test kit.

    Comments: There are a small ton of pH test kits on the market, and most of the low to mid-range priced kits are about the same. This one, however, has the added bonus having a gradient chart that is easy to use as a reference. The "blue" charts are sometimes hard for me to see, and have a smaller scale to test between. This one is very clear, very easy, and works as advertised. The only thing I don't care about is the cap they include. It doesn't fit very well, and is a pain to get back off the tube. Beyond that. Perfecto!
