Brand: Red Sea

The KH/Alkalinity Pro Test Kit from Red Sea is a sophisticated titration test which can be used in order to precisely measure buffers levels in your aquarium with an incredible precision of 0.05 meq/l (0.14dKH). The test can be used for accurate dosing of Reef Foundation B supplement, which is a component of the complete Red Sea Reef Care program.

The kit is good for 75 tests. The kit comes with an easy to use, highly accurate titrator, which can be operated by one hand. Also included are a durable, chemical resistant plastic case and analytical grade glass vials.

In order to use the KH/Alkalinity Pro Test Kit, you will need to place exactly 10 ml of water into the glass vial using the syringe provided. Screw the glass vial onto the bottom of the titrator. Check so that the dispensing tip is on the 1 ml titration syringe and fill it with 1 ml of Alkalinity Pro titrant. Now insert the syringe into the center of the titrator and add 0.4 ml of titrant while gently swirling the titrator. This would be the equivalent of 2.0 meq/l – 5.6 dKH. The sample should turn to the start color shown in the instruction card. Continue slowly adding more titrant and gently swirling afterwards and note the color changes. When the color begins resembling the end color shown on the instruction card, start adding only one drop at a time and continue swirling until you finally achieve the end color. If you have added the entire 1 ml of alkalinity titrant without reaching the end color, this means that the alkalinity in the aquarium is more than 5 meq/L (14 dKH). In this case refill the syringe and continue adding titrant until you reach the end color.

Once the end color is reached, note the quantity of titrant used and calculate the alkalinity in the water using the table provided. Afterwards you dispose of any unused alkalinity titrant.
