Details

Aquaculture has developed into a highly sophisticated field that uses scientific techniques to maintain the water where aquatic plants and animals live. The ability to optimize parameters affecting water quality is important for efficient production, and sensitive and accurate testing methods are essential. The Hach aquaculture test kit is designed to meet this need. The kit includes chemicals and apparatus for the determination of 10 important water parameters.

Acidity, alkalinity, carbon dioxide, chloride, dissolved oxygen, and hardness tests are conducted with the Digital Titrator - a compact, accurate dispensing unit that replaces a buret. Ammonia nitrogen, nitrite nitrogen, and pH determinations are colorimetric tests. Results are obtained by matching the developed color of the sample to a precalibrated color disc. The kit also contains a rugged, armored thermometer for temperature readings.

With this aquaculture kit, the analyst can obtain the data necessary for making the right management decisions. Packaged in a durable, portable case, the kit can be used for measurements in the field.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
When measuring for Chloride, how can I convert my answers to mg/L sodium chloride?
Results may be expressed as mg/L sodium chloride (NaCl) by multiplying the mg/L chloride (Cl–) by 1.65.
When measuring for Nitrite, how can I convert my answers to mg/L nitrite?
The test results can be converted from mg/L nitrite nitrogen (N) to mg/L nitrite (NO2–) by multiplying the final reading by 3.3.

Too Close for Comfort: About Half of Fracking Wells 2 to 3 km From Domestic Groundwater Systems

If you live in a city, you may take the safety of the water that you drink for granted, although recent developments in Flint may have changed your mind about that. But for 45 million Americans who drink water that comes from private wells, drawn from groundwater and unregulated by a public utility, the question of what's in that water is an even bigger unknown—a potentially dangerous one. In 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report indicating that supplies of drinking water near hydraulic-fracturing or fracking sites are more likely to be affected by contamination events. Scott Jasechko and Debra Perrone, Researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara, wanted to find out just how many privately-owned groundwater wells might be at risk.

In-Home Water Testing: A Talk With the Creator of Tap Score by SimpleWater

In the wake of various water quality crises from Flint, Michigan and Puerto Rico, there is a growing interest and demand among consumers for home water testing. Enter DIY water testing kits like Tap Score by SimpleWater . Tap Score in particular was conceived of and launched by former UC Berkeley grad student John Pujol and co-founder and CTO Julio Rodriguez. “In 2015 we began testing small and rural communities for arsenic in their water,” Pujol explains. “We found it much more frequently than we expected, and also discovered that people in these towns greatly appreciated someone telling them what was in their water and how to fix it.

Hidden Underground Nitrate Pollution Threatens Groundwater Worldwide

For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.
