ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- PH FRESHWATER

Regular monitoring of the pH-level is one of the basic tests necessary to note and to avoid any negative developments. ELOS AquaTest PH Freshwater, allows a determination of the pH-value with the help of a finely tuned color scale which shows a range of 5.8 to 8.3 pH-units.

The pH-value is a 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. If the acidic components are predominant, the pH value will drop below 7.

If the basic components predominate, the pH value will rise above 7. In fresh water aquariums (when not dedicated to Malawi cichlids etc.) the optimum pH value is between 6.2 and 7.2 which is the value found in natural waters. 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Easy-reading: "Real Color" technology.
  • High precision: thanks to the use of calibrated droppers
  • NIST validation: each batch of Elos reagents is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. ELOS test kits are not based on Toxic Reagents.
  • Fresh water (low range) pH Test (5.8 - 8.3)

ELOS AquaTest pH Freshwater, 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. 


Manufacturer Info

ELOS America is the USA branch of a time-honored tradition. ELOS has been in business in Europe for over 25 years, and is recognized as one of the most innovative leaders in the aquarium industry. In 1997, ELOS was the first to discover that in closed systems, some species of corals (mainly SPS) significantly benefit (better colors and more rapid growth) from a reduced addition of organic additives (dissolved organic material), but only when compensated by a selective addition of high quality nourishment. Based on our groundbreaking and innovative research, ELOS introduced to the market a "Trio" of products to feed our corals – Omega (Amino Acids), SvC (planktonic Coral Food) and Pro-Skimmer (Carbonate Source).

ELOS was also the very first company to produce LED lights for the aquarium, the first to produce a rimless tank, the first to use probiotics in our foods, and numerous other firsts. ELOS is committed to providing high quality products to the aquarium industry and customers quickly recognize our dedication to not only advancing the hobby through research and innovation, but also our dedication to elegant simplicity in design and use. With the addition of a dedicated staff and warehouse in the USA, we are renewing our commitment to provide our customers with the best possible solutions and products available.

REVIEW
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 ...Read More

REVIEW
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 ...Read More
