    Quickly & accurately measures the level of ammonia in pond water, reading levels from 0 ppm to 7 ppm. Makes 75 tests. Determines the level of toxic ammonia in both new & established ponds.

    Ammonia is continuously produced from fish waste & urine, uneaten fish food & decaying plants & dead insects. Includes test solution, glass test tube w/ cap, color chart & instructions.

    How often should I test for ammonia?
    Regular testing is necessary to make sure the ammonia level is safe. Pond water should be tested for ammonia every other day when the pond is first set up, and once a week after the biological filter has been established (in about 4 to 6 weeks).
    The ammonia level should always be zero once the biological filter is established.

    My water garden has been set up for over five years and never had an ammonia problem. Now the ammonia test kit indicates an ammonia problem. Why?

    There are several possible reasons for an ammonia surge in an established pond.

    • Koi and goldfish grow every year. Each year they consume more food and release more ammonia than the year before. It may be that the number and size of the fish is too great for the pond’s ecosystem.
    • Check the pH. If the pH drops to around 6.0 the nitrifying bacteria will be inhibited. This will result in an increase in ammonia and/or nitrite.
    • Over-feeding a properly stocked pond will certainly cause an ammonia problem.
    • Make sure the filtration system is clean and running properly. A dirty filter can become anaerobic and release ammonia into the pond.

    Can the ammonia test kit be used with ammonia removers?
    Yes.
