The pH value or acid value indicateshow acidic or alkaline water is.
It is a measure of the concentration of the acidic or alkalinecomponents in a hydrous solution. Pure water will react neutral and hasa pH-value of 7.00 . If the acidic components are predominant, the pHvalue will drop below 7.00. If the basic components are predominant,the pH-value will rise about 7.00.
The SaltWater aquarium pH-value is considered between 8.1 and 8.4 pHwhich is the value found in natural seawater.
Many organisms will react with high sensitivity to very smallvariations of the pH-value. An overly drop or rise should be avoidedabsolutely. Most of the organisms reacts sensitively (or die) on apH-level, which is constantly far away from the requested value as wellas on gravid modifications.
Therefore, a regular check on the pH-level is elementary necessary tonote and to avoid any negative development.
ELOS AquaTest pHM, as well as all the other colorimetric testkitof this line, grants an high precision thanks to severalprocedureslike the use of “RealColor”technology, an accurate system to calibrate the colours chart comparedto the reagents; the validation of its quality, thrugh NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples, in order to grant accuracy and constant results; the carefull stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the most actual and fresh production batch.
ELOSAquaTest pH M shows arange of 8.1 / 9.0 pH-units.
Highprecision: thanks to the use ofcalibrated dropper
NISTvalidation: each batch isvalidated using NIST(National Instituteof Standardand Technology)samples
"Safereagents": reagents and testingprocedures are based on Low Risk Reagents.None of our test kit are based on Toxic Reagents.
