NT LABS Pond Water Mini Test Kit

When to use?
The key to successful fish keeping is excellent water quality. The Pond Water Mini tests three water parameters: pH, Nitrite and Ammonia.

Ammonia:
What is ammonia?

Ammonia is excreted by fish as a waste product. It is extremely toxic to fish, and is broken down into less toxic nitrite by the beneficial bacteria in the filter of your pond.

Nitrite:
What is nitrite?

Nitrite is produced by the beneficial bacteria in the pond and filters as they break down harmful ammonia excreted by fish. Although not as toxic as ammonia, nitrite is still very damaging to the health of the fish. Nitrite itself is broken down into nitrate which is significantly less harmful to fish.

pH:
What is pH?

pH is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of the water in your pond.  The pH scale runs from 0 to 14. Very acid water is pH 0 and very alkaline water is pH 14. Neutral water that is neither acid nor alkaline is pH 7.

How do I do the tests?
A full instruction leaflet is included in the pack which talks you through each parameter, what it should be, and what you should do if the readings are incorrect.

Oase AquaActiv Quickstick 6 in 1
Oase AquaActiv Quickstick 6 in 1

The Oase AquaActiv Quickstick 6 in 1 Water Test Kit from Oase provides a quick and easy way to test for 6 of the most important water parameters in your pond environment.

Water quality is a crucial factor for the biological balance within a pond and the health of fish and other pond inhabitants. Consequently, from time to time it is recommended to check the water parameters and take corrective action if necessary. With Oase AquaActiv Quickstick 6 in 1 you can quickly and easily check six of the most important water values in just over a minute.

Unfortunately, these days tap water is not always suitable for fish and plants. For example, excessive nitrate or chlorine values in tap water are no longer rarities and can be harmful or disruptive to the pond Eco system. Thus from time to time you should also check your tap water that you use to fill your pond.

Oase AquaActiv Quickstick 6 in 1 Tests:
– Chlorine (CL2)
– pH
– Total hardness (GH)
– Carbonate hardness (KH)
– Nitrite (NO2)
– Nitrate (NO3)

Description :

  • Fast and simple analysis of the 6 most important water values
  • One minute is all it takes
  • Easy to use
  • Suitable for testing approximately 50 water samples (300 parameters)
  • Tests for Chlorine, pH, Total Hardness, Carbonate Hardness, Nitrite and Nitrate

Instructions:

  • Dip the test strip in the pond water for one second
  • Shake off excess water
  • Wait for one minute then compare against colour chart

Colombo Ammonia Pond Test Kit

Colombo Ammonia Pond Test Kit

Ammonia (NH3) is excreted by fish directly into the water, and is also released from the breakdown of solid waste and uneaten food. Ammonia is highly toxic to fish, but is usually removed from the water by the bacteria which live inside the filter.

The only way to know what the ammonia level is, is by testing the water with an Ammonia test kit. Regular testing, especially in new ponds, will prevent damage caused by ammonia poisoning.

Colombo Ammonia Pond Test Kit contains 40 tests.

Colombo KH Pond Test Kit
Colombo KH Pond Test Kit

Colombo KH Test Kit will help you ensure the correct Carbonate Hardness (KH) is maintained in your pond.

For clear pond water and healthy fish and plants you need to monitor your KH and pH levels.

KH is a measurement for the total amount of dissolved carbonates in the pond water.

When the KH is too low the pH can fluctuate which is very harmful for the aquatic life.

Colombo KH Pond Test Kit contains 25 tests.

Koi Medic Digital Salinity Tester
Koi Medic Digital Salinity Tester

Koi Medic Digital Salinity

The Koi Medic Digital Salinity Tester is the ideal way to test the salinity levels in your Koi pond. This technically advanced device gives fast and accurate results every time. It is very easy to use, simply dip the sensor into the water and read the result.

Using the Salinity Tester each time you add salt to the water will ensure that the water levels have just the right level of salt. It’s important to ensure that the salinity levels are optimised to ensure good fish health and to eliminate parasites in the water.

The Tester uses 4 x 1.5v batteries and has over 150 hours of life. It conserves energy too, thanks to an automatic shut off after 15 minutes.

Please note:

It is strongly advised that you do not add salt directly into the water in large amounts. This may burn the koi. Also check the salinity levels of the water regularly as it can be affected by wet or dry weather conditions.

Key Features:

  • Simple, easy to use sensor
  • Accurate results
  • Over 150 hours of continuous life
  • Shut off feature to save energy

Ammonia Test Kit
NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit

NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit

Ammonia is released by most living organisms as part of the break down of organic matter. Fish waste contains a high level of ammonia, and they also secrete the substance at the gills.

Ammonia is very detrimental to fish health; it disturbs osmoregulatory function, irritates the gill and skin surfaces, destroys the protective mucous coating of the fish, causes internal and external bleeding, damages the brain and central nervous system. Even at levels below 0.01 ppm ammonia has been shown to depress the immune system of the fish.

Thus it is essential to regularly check the concentration of ammonia using a NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit, in your pond, to ensure that the bacteria are functioning correctly and all toxic waste ammonia is being removed.

Ammonia is excreted by the fish as a waste product, too much ammonia will cause major health problems for fish so test for it regularly.

Nitrate Test Kit
NT Labs Nitrate Test Kit

NT Labs Nitrate Test Kit

Nitrate is produced by the beneficial bacteria in the pond and filters as they break down the fish’s toxic waste products (Ammonia and Nitrite). Nitrate is not toxic to pond fish.

This process forms the biological filtration system and is called the Nitrogen Cycle. Nitrate itself is relatively non-toxic, and will not cause troubles at low concentrations. However Nitrate can cause problems as the level rises.

Monitor the level of nitrate in your pond using a NT Labs Nitrate Test Kit on a regular basis. When the level becomes too high for your particular system perform a partial water change to lower the nitrate concentration.

Nitrite Test Kit
NT Labs Nitrite Test Kit

NT Labs Nitrite Test Kit
Nitrite is produced by the beneficial bacteria in the pond and filters as they break down the harmful waste ammonia excreted by the fish. Nitrite can affect the health of fish but is now as toxic as ammonia.
As well as irritating the surfaces and gills of the fish the main factor leading to nitrite poisoning is the corruption of the structure of haemoglobin, the oxygen carrying agent of blood. Nitrite causes the addition of a methyl group to haemoglobin, forming methhaemoglobin which cannot carry oxygen, thus asphyxiating the fish. This disease, called meth-haemoglobinaemia can be recognised as the fishes blood turns from red to brown.
Check the nitrite concentration of your koi pond using a NT Labs Nitrite Test Kit. The nitrite level of the water should always be zero. (Unless just starting up)
The appearance of any colour in this test indicates a warning that the filter system is not working perfectly.
