In the box of the API – 5 in 1 Test Strips (Pond), you will receive 25 Test Strips.
The API® POND 5-IN-1 TEST STRIPS provide accurate results for your pond’s water conditions using a highly precise color chart for easy-to-read results. Measured parameters include pH, Nitrite, Nitrate, Carbonate Hardness, and General Hardness. Snap-cap container keeps unused strips protected and dry, maintaining product stability and extending the shelf life of the product. No separate test vial is required – simply dip a test strip directly into your pond for easy reading of your pond’s levels. Testing your water has never been so simple!
It is important for aquarists to provide a healthy pond environment by approximating the water conditions of the natural habitats of their fish. This requires routine water testing to make sure that conditions are correct for the fish being kept. API – 5 in 1 Test Strips (Pond) are the quick and easy way to test 5 of the most important measures of aquarium water quality: General Hardness (GH), Carbonate Hardness (KH), pH, Nitrite (NO2-) and Nitrate (NO3-). These 5 parameters should be tested weekly, since natural materials in the pond, such as fish waste and decaying food, as well as water changes and evaporation can cause these levels to shift over time.
1. Dip strip directly into aquarium.
2. S WIRL 2 TIMES .
3. R emove horizontally with pads face up.
4. DO NOT SHAKE OFF EXCESS WATER .
5. Compare to the color chart on the tube.
6. Starting with the pad closest to your hand, immediately read General Hardness (GH) and
Carbonate Hardness (KH).
7. Wait 30 seconds, then read pH, Nitrite (NO2-) and Nitrate (NO3-).
