Carbonate Hardness Test KitThe level of Carbonate Hardness is the basis for the value of the pH in a given sample of water.
Carbonate Hardness of water must be maintained for a stable pH.
Easy test to perform in 10 or 20ppm steps and also very accurate as most will use steps of 17.9ppm which also makes it harder to calculate.
A Carbonate Hardness test is a test of the carbonate and bicarbonate extent contained in a sample of water. It affects all aquarium both salt and fresh.
The Carbonate Hardness of water is an important measurement, because the level of Carbonate Hardness is the basis for the value of the pH in a given sample of water.
A strong Carbonate Hardness reserve in water can mean a very stable pH and the bonus of an alternative supply of carbon dioxide for plants and algae if supply runs short. This applies equally for marine or freshwater environments.
