Nitrate Profi-Test When there are insufficient areas of a tank which are deprived of oxygen (anaerobic zones) or denitrification is not taking place properly, nitrate will build up. This can also happen in an aquarium where the biological loading on the system is causing an imbalance e.g. if there is excessive livestock for the aquarium volume or over feeding is occurring. The build up of nitrate can result in unwanted algae growth and the slowing down of coral growth. The nitrate concentration in a reef aquarium should be lower than 1 mg/L, although fish only aquariums would usually have a higher concentration. Just as with nitrite, many nitrate test kits are prone to amine interference which can make the levels of nitrate appear much lower than they actually are. The Salifert test kit does not suffer from such interference and gives accurate and quick results with a total testing time of less than 3 minutes. The test kit's range goes from a very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.2 - 100 mg/L as total nitrate). Sufficient for 50 tests. This test offers two ranges:Low range: 0.2 - 10 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.Medium range: 2 - 100 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.Clean test vial and scoop after use. Store this kit in a dry place.Warning!KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Disinfection of drinking water is one of the major public health advances of the 20th century, however, the disinfectants themselves can react with naturally occurring materials in the water to form unintended byproducts which may pose health risks. A major challenge for water suppliers is balancing the risks from microbial pathogens and disinfection byproducts. Contaminates are in our water supply, some not regulated or adequately controlled, posing immediate health problems. People turn on their taps to drink, shower, bathe, cook, wash dishes and clothing, assuming it is safe. Bacterial contamination causes severe digestive problems, fever, nausea, diarrhea and sometimes even death. According to the EPA, total coliform and E. coli bacteria testing is recommended twice a year. Fecal coliform bacteria are mostly found in drinking water that comes from private wells and small water systems. This is partly because private water supplies, small rural public water supplies and private wells are not required by law to be tested. The PRO-LAB comes with an Optional Lab Analysis. On the petri dish the test will show columns - if you have 0 - 5 columns indicates clean water. Over 5 columns you should send in for full analysis, this kit will need to be mailed inside the included pre-stamped envelope to Pro Lab Inc's. There is a charge of $30 for the testing. Pro Lab Inc guarantees the fastest turnaround time in the laboratory testing industry!
