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.

Charles River Algal Blooms Stop Swimming and Launch a Floating Wetland

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents. Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river. An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.

Harnessing the Gulf Stream for Renewable Energy

The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use. Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.

Buoys in the time of Covid: Delays to important information

In early 2020, Michigan found itself facing one of the worst outbreaks of Covid-19 in the country. Though it’s close to second nature now, businesses, schools and governments were suddenly forced to conduct business without close contact. Universities and research institutions had to pause some scientific research. Whatever was able to continue slowed to a crawl. Around the Great Lakes, a network of buoys monitors dozens of water quality parameters and lake conditions, reporting them in real time. This year, the monitoring season was cut a bit short as Covid-19 restrictions hit in the weeks before buoys were set to be deployed.
