Maintaining good water quality is essential for profitable fish production. In many cases, availability and cost of "crop" insurance is directly related to testing programs. This kit utilizes drop count titration and color disc methods to deliver the fast, accurate results you need.

  • Titration Methods:
    Alkalinity (0–100, 0–400 mg/L CaCO3)
    Carbon dioxide (0–100 mg/L CO2)
    Chloride (0–150, 0–600 mg/L Cl–)
    Dissolved oxygen (0–4, 0–20 mg/L O2)
    Hardness, total (0–342 mg/L CaCO3)
  • Color Disk Methods:
    Ammonia (0–3.0 NH3–N)
    Nitrite (0–0.4 mg/L NO2–N)
    pH (4–10 pH units)
  • Observation Method:
    Supersaturation: (Qualitative)
Includes seventeen reagents, one measuring tube, clippers, one color comparator box, one BOD bottle, one mixing bottle, one dropper, two plastic tubes, three color discs, one thermometer, instructions, and a carrying case.
Questions & Answers
Do you offer a reagent refill kit?

We do not offer a refill kit, however, refill reagents are available individually under the Accessories tab.

What are the 9 basic water quality parameters that can be measured by this kit?

The Hach Freshwater Aquaculture test kit measures for ammonia, nitrite, pH, temperature, alkalinity, carbon dioxide, chloride, dissolved oxygen and hardness.

When testing for Ammonia, my sample has a slight yellow color. Is my sample contaminated?

No, the Nessler reagent gives even pure water a slight yellow color. This small color is negligible unless measuring a small amount of Ammonia. When measuring a small amount, add 3 drops of reagent to 5mL of ammonia-free water to use instead of the untreated sample in the left top opening.

When testing for carbon dioxide, what is the ratio between carbon dioxide and Sodium Hydroxide drops?

Each drop of Sodium Hydroxide Standard Solution is equivalent to 5mg/L of Carbon Dioxide.

Environmental Dredging and Remedial Construction

Though dredging is often painted in a negative light, dredging initiatives and projects are often conducted to improve environments, begin recovery periods for water beds contaminated with toxins, and reinvigorate ecological systems and habitats. Many of the technicians and engineers who plan and execute dredging projects are dedicated to balancing the economic benefits of dredging with protecting the environment. Sevenson Environmental Services Inc.  provides sediment remediation as one of many key services offered to help restore natural environments. Steven Shaw spent more than a decade working as an engineer on various dredging projects before finding his way to Sevenson eight years ago.

Caring for the Chesapeake: Supporting the Iconic Bay Starts with Good Monitoring Data

The Chesapeake Bay is enormous: the Bay and its tidal tributaries have 11,684 miles of shoreline—more than the entire U.S. west coast. It is the largest of more than 100 estuaries in the United States and the third largest in the world. The Bay itself is about 200 miles long, stretching from Havre de Grace, Maryland, to Virginia Beach, Virginia. But the Chesapeake Bay isn’t just enormous--it’s enormously important. The  Chesapeake Bay Program  reports that its watershed covers about 64,000 square miles and is home to more than 18 million people, 10 million of which live along or near the Bay’s shores.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.
