The precise Macherey-Nagel Visocolor ECO carbonate hardness test is very well suited for aquaristic use and stands out in particular due to its long durability and the many possible measurements.
Determination method is titration with hydrochloric acid against a mixed indicator whose colour changes when the pH reaches 4,5 (basis for the reaction in analogy to DIN EN ISO 9963-1 C24)
The term "carbonate hardness" is used for the part of calcium and magnesium ions present in the form of carbonate or hydrogen carbonate. Normally, carbonate hardness is smaller than total hardness. It is only larger under very special circumstances, which need to be cleared up. It is e.g. possible that alkaline hydrocarbonates were added or that the buffering capacity is very high.
- Measuring range: 1 drop = 1° dH
- Sufficient for 100 tests at an average hardness of 10° dH
- Suitable for seawater: yes
- Not suitable for compact photometer PF-12
Safety information in accordance with GHS
Signal word: Danger
- H225 Highly flammable liquid and vapour

Sehr gute Ablesbarkeit der Verfärbung (Farbumschlag) bei sehr niedriger KH (zB bei 1,5°KH). Preis auf den ersten Blick hoch, jedoch bei Haltbarkeit und Testanzahl absolut in Ordnung.
Einziger Nachteil: Messbehälter bei doppelter Flüssigkeit (10ml) etwas klein.
