Overview

* Professional calcium test kit favored by reef aquarium hobbyists
* Use to accurately measure and monitor aquarium calcium level
* Precision calcium test kit measures in 10 ppm increments

Precision calcium test kit for laboratory grade results. Favored by champion reef aquarium hobbyists, Salifert Calcium Kit offers convenient and accurate measurement of calcium. Unlike other test kits, Salifert is not affected by magnesium to provide true test results. Use the Salifert Calcium Test Kit to measure calcium level for proper calcium supplementation. Measures in increments of 10 ppm. Use for marine and freshwater aquariums as well as water garden ponds. 50-100 tests.

The Calcium test can be used for testing:

  • Marine Water
  • Fresh Water
  • Garden Pond Water
  • Freshwater Aquarium

Warning: Ca-2 reagent is irritating. Contains <2% NaOH.
R36/38: Irritating to eyes and skin.
S26: In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Keep out of reach of children!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add with the syringe 2 ml of water in the test vial. For a lower resolution and more tests per kit, add 1 ml instead of 2 ml.
  2. Add 1 spoon of Ca-1 (low-resolution approx. 1/2 spoon), do not mix yet.
  3. Add 8 drops of Ca-2. The low resolution mode requires 4 drops. Swirl (do NOT shake) for 10 seconds.
  4. Put the plastic tip firmly on the 1 ml syringe. And draw into the syringe the CA-3 reagent (ensure that the end of the plastic tip is constantly submersed in the Ca-3 reagent) until the lower end of the black part of the piston is exactly at the 1.00 ml mark. There will be some air present just below the piston. This is the air, which was present between the end of the plastic tip and the piston. This will not influence the test result.
  5. Add drop-wise with the 1 ml syringe the Ca-3 reagent to the water in the test tube. Swirl after each drop a second or two. Continue with this until the color changes from pink-red to a clear blue color. Tip: If you know approximately the needed amount of ca-3, then add up to 80% of that all at one and mix for 10 seconds and then proceed by adding drop by drop. This will allow fast testing.
  6. Hold the syringe with the tip facing upward and read the position of the, now the upper end, black part of the piston. The syringe has graduations of 0.01 ml. Read the calcium value from the table.

If you have chosen for the lower resolution mode, then multiply the calcium value from the table by 2.

Natural seawater contains 425-450 ppm calcium.
