About this product

The kit combines the Marine pH & Alkalinity, Ammonia and Nitrite & Nitrate kits into one kit. MultiTest Marine Basic performs over 75 tests and contains a reference sample for validation.

pH

  1. Fill sample pipette to base of bulb and dispense to a test cavity of the test plate.
  2. Add one drop of Marine pH Reagent and stir briefly.
  3. Read pH from chart.

alkalinity

  1. Fill sample pipette to base of bulb and dispense to a test cavity of the test plate.
  2. Hold the alkalinity pipette vertically and add 1 drop of Alkalinity Reagent. Stir briefly. Continue adding drops (count the drops) and stirring until color turns from blue to yellow. Just before going to yellow, a lime green color will appear. The final drop is usually one drop beyond this point.
  3. Each drop is is equal to 0.5 meq/L. The number of drops to get to yellow divided by 2 is the total alkalinity.

free ammonia

  1. Fill sample pipette to base of bulb and dispense to a test cavity of the test plate.
  2. Unscrew the cap from the sensor container and remove a sensor using the supplied forceps, rinse with clean water, and place in the test cavity containing the sample. To avoid damaging sensors, do not handle with bare fingers. Use the supplied forceps to manipulate sensors. Avoid excessive pressure.
  3. Read after 10–15 minutes from bottom scale (less sensitive) or after 30 minutes from top scale (more sensitive) in mg/L.
  4. On completion of tests, rinse sensors, and return to their container where they will regenerate within a few hours.
