These KoiMedic Salt Testers have been specifically designed to measure delicate salt concentrations in a Koi pond. It is simple to use .. just switch it on and dip the tester into the pond water to measure the salt content accurately.

Common Salt, sodium chloride (NaC), is generally used in the health care and treatment of fish - it's particularly useful in treating parasites. Most fish have an internal salt concentration of 1.0 per cent or ten parts per thousand (ppt) which is higher than their water environment. Osmosis causes water to transfer from the lower salinity of the pond water into the tissues of the fish. The addition of salt will lower the osmosis pressure. This reduces the effort of the fish in eliminating the excess water. The saved energy is then available for use by the fish's own immune system to fight deseases. On the other hand, if the salinity of the water environment is close to the internal tissues of the fish, the osmosis pressure will reverse and cause the fish to die of dehydration.

Salt concentrations between 0.3%  and 0.5% (3 to 5ppt) will upset the osmotic balance of some parasites i.e. the parasites cells will dehydrate. Salt can also be useful in the control of algae.

Now we have a pH digital meter ...  easy to use - easy to read ... and easy on the pocket ....

Like the salt meters ..  you simply dip the end into the water to be tested - press the button and you will have a read-out instantly showing you  the pH value of your water ..
