Hydroponics and aquaponics equipment and testing equipment

Carbon dioxide control

Modern farming systems often require carbon dioxide (CO2) supplementation. We supply flowmeter regulators and solenoid valves for this application. These commect to the CO2 cylinder and allow flow control between 1 and 25 lpm. Suitable for growrooms, green houses, aquariums, algae production and hydroponics.

Test kits for hydroponics and aquaponics

Hydroponics test kit

The hydroponics kit tests for pH and three key nutrient factors: nitrogen, phosphorus and  potassium. It allows the hydroponic hobbyist to maintain proper nutrient balance and to achieve optimum growing conditions in soil-less  cultures. Reagents sufficient for 50 tests per factor and complete  labware are foam-mounted in a sturdy carrying case. Instructions and  75-page hydroponics handbook are supplied.

Aquaponics  water quality management equipment options

In an aquaponic setting, total nitrate is added to the list of general water chemistry parameters that are monitored most frequently in aquaculture applications. Plants in these systems are often limited in iron, calcium and potassium.

So parameters to measure:

  • Water temperature (F or C) (meter)
  • Dissolved oxygen (D.O.) (meter)
  • pH  (meter, test strip)
  • Total Ammonia-Nitrogen or TAN (test strip, kits)
  • Total Nitrite
  • Total Nitrate
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Iron

The range of testing and meter options ranges from test strips to professional meters.

 

Oxygen (dissolved oxygen (DO)) is best measure with an oxygen meter. There are however chemical methods for reading DO.

Selected kits with a Range/sensitivity of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 1.0 ppm NO3--N; 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 1.0 ppm PO43- are suitable for aquaponics. The same applies to the ammonia and nitrite levels that are suited to aquaculture applications.

multi-meter water monitor

pH, EC, CF, TDS, ORP, Temperature

aquaponics-multiparameter meterMultiparameter meter for water quality testing and monotoring. Measures siz water quality parameters - pH, C, ORP (mV), EC (uS), CF and TDS (ppm). The 6 in 1 water monitor is a user friendly monitor which can be used  in aquariums, pools and for hydroponic purposes. The unit can be run via a re-chargeable battery or by power supply. (If run via 220v ensure to  ground the reservoir). The Screen is back-lit making it easy to read.

Accessories:

  • Wall brackets/suckers/velcro for easy installation
  • one small screwdriver
