FW/SW Phosphate Test Kit

FW/SW Phosphate Test Kit  
Item #:199700
Availability:Usually ships in 2-3 business days

Phosphate enters your aquarium through tap water, fish waste and decaying food or organic material. Phosphate promotes unsightly algae and green water blooms. In salt water, phosphate can also inhibit the growth of corals and other invertebrates.

This kit allows you to easily and accurately measure the phosphate level and maintain a healthy aquarium or pond. It does 150 tests. Kit contains: two dropper bottles for accurate dispensing of test solutions, easy to read instructions and color charts, one non-staining glass test tube with snap-tight cap. Range is as follows for freshwater and saltwater: 0.0 PPM, 0.5 PPM, 1.0 PPM, 2.0 PPM, 5.0 PPM, 10.0 PPM.

  1. Fill the test tube with 5ml of water to be tested (to the line on the tube). Add 6 drops from Test Solution bottle #1 to the test tube, holding the dropper bottle upside down in a completely vertical position to assure uniformity of drops added to the water sample.
  2. Cap and shake the test tube vigorously for 5 seconds.
  3. Add 4 drops for Test Solution Bottle #2 to the test tube, holding the dropper bottle upside down in a completely vertical position to assure uniformity of drops added to the water sample. Bottle #2 has very thick solution and may require increased pressure while squeezing to release drops.
  4. Cap and shake the test tube vigorously for 5 seconds.
  5. Wait 3 minutes for full color to develop.
  6. After the 3 minutes, read the test results by matching the test solution against the appropriate Phosphate Test Color Chart. The tube should be be viewed against the white area beside the color chart.
  7. Color comparisons are best made in a well-lit area. The closest match indicates the PPM (mg/l) of total phosphate in the water sample.
  8. Rinse the test tube with clean water after each use.
