Get a fast, accurate reading of your pond’s water condition with API's Pond 5-IN-1 Test Strips. Routine pond maintenance is the key to keeping the water condition as close to your finned friends' natural habitat as possible. Safe for both freshwater and saltwater, these strips measure pH, nitrite, nitrate, carbonate hardness and general hardness with a single strip. With distinct color variation on the strips, the results are easy to read. And there’s no need for separate test vials—just dip a strip into the water and use the precise color charts to determine each level. A special liner inside the container keeps the test strips dry until they are ready to be used.

    I wanted to try the Pond Test Strips in conjunction with the API Pond Test Kit to compare the results. SPOT ON READINGS for PH and Nitrites with Nitrate, KH & GH testing that the Kit didn't have. So between both I can rest assured that my water parameters are Exactly where they need to be for MY FINBABY'S!
