This test strip is for the rapid and reliable determination of alkalinity or carbonate hardness in water. The easy dip-and-read-procedure provides a reliable result within 30 seconds.
Carbonate hardness or alkalinity is a measure for the waters pH-buffer capacity. If the Carbonate Hardness is higher, addition of acids or bases will have a lower influence on the resulting pH. Sudden and rapid pH-changes of the water are avoided.
QUANTOFIX® Carbonate hardness is used for the quick and easy control of water in swimming pools and aquariums.
