LaMotte Calcium Test Kit

This is a very high quality, accurate and easy to use test kit. I am very happy with all my LaMotte test kits. In fact if I could afford it, all my test kits would be LaMotte or Hatch kits -- they are the best kits.

This is a pretty easy test to perform. 1ml of tank water is added to the vial, then diluted to 12.9ml (fill to line) with deionized water. Add 6 drops of reagent and swirl. Add a color tablet and swirl to dissolve. Fill syringe with titration liquid and perform the test.

These kits are not cheap, but once you buy them, you only need to buy refill kits which are very cheap.
