Proper dissolved oxygen levels are essential for aquatic ecosystems. A dissolved oxygen level of 5 mg/L or greater will support healthy growth of most fish species. Other applications include monitoring in waste water treatment plants, determination of BOD and COD. This test kit uses an adaptation of the Winkler method to determine dissolved oxygen. Includes 100 tests.
This parameter is important in determination of the corrosive properties of water, caused by carbonates, bicarbonates as well as dissolved salts. Testing alkalinity is important in the treatment of drinking water, waste water, swimming pools, heating and cooling systems, food and beverage systems, and soil and environmental testing, as well as in agriculture, farming and fish farming. Includes 110 tests.
