Water test Kits and Equipment

The Kusuri “One Off” Range

Testing your water is extremely important.

The water parameters can change over night - be aware of this if you don't want to go down to the pond to feed the fish etc and find that you have a major problem on your hands .. make it a rule, even if you believe that all is well - to test your water on a regular basis .. that way you will be alerted to any changes as they actually happen and be in a position to do something about it.



The Kusuri range of visual test kits all feature Palintest® technology components, they are the very best in visual test kits. All kits feature and easy to colour match plastic acetate card and are supplied with non-degradable foil sealed tablets.

Each kit will do 30 tests.  The “one off” range Principle is exactly that!  Buy it once, and you can replenish your kit with refill tablets or any other components required, and of course we put plenty of water quality information in our kits, so appropriate action can be taken if results are not as anticipated.

The trouble with visual test kits is matching the colour to the sample to ascertain a reading.  These kits feature an accurate plastic acetate colour strip which, when held up to daylight, is far easier to compare than a paper printed chart.
