Hanna Marine Alkalinity Checker

Hanna Marine Alkalinity Checker

Ideal for salt water aquariums and coral reef tanks. Designed exclusively for saltwater aquariums, the HI-772 checker offers a quick, easy and highly accurate method of measuring alkalinity in degrees of calcium hardness, commonly abbreviated as dKH.

Alkalinity helps to maintain a stable pH, a vital factor for most aquatic life. Corals also need an adequate level of alkalinity in order to support healthy growth: if levels are too low, corals cannot precipitate and form their skeletons; if levels fluctuate too much or too quickly, growth can become impaired.

The more precise and stable the levels, the better the results. With regular, precise monitoring, fluctuations in levels can be quickly corrected, giving your corals the best chance of success.

Key Features: 

Test Results in 4 Easy Steps
Quick results from a single button in 4 easy steps. First zero the Checker with an empty vial inside. Next place a 10ml water sample inside the vial and add the included reagent. Return the now full vial to the checker. Press the button and read the result.

More Accurate than Chemical Test Kits
The checker uses a Colorimetric method. The reaction causes a distinctive range of colours from yellow to green to blue to develop. The result given is accurate to ±0.3 dKH between 0 to 20 dKH. Most chemical test kits on the market are only accurate to ±1 dKH.

Hand-held Portable Design
Small compact size with a single button and powered by only one AAA battery (included) makes these Checkers from Hanna Instruments incredibly versatile and portable. Perfect for aquarists, aquaculturists, fish keepers, and even scientists in the field.
