How does the Hygen pH Test Kit work?

The Hygen pH Test Kit works by using a drop tester system to measure the pH levels of your garden or plant's water. It consists of a pH indicator bottle, a colour chart, and a test tube. The kit tests a pH range of 4.5 to 7.5.

How do I use the Hygen pH Test Kit for accurate results?

To use the Hygen pH Test Kit, follow these steps:

1. Fill the test tube provided with the water sample you wish to test.

2. Add one drop of the Hygen pH Test solution to the test tube.

3. Shake the test tube gently to mix the solution with the water sample.

4. Compare the colour of the water sample with the colour chart provided to determine the pH level.

How many tests can I perform with one Hygen pH Test Kit?

The number of tests you can perform with one Hygen pH Test Kit depends on the size of the pH indicator bottle. One drop of the pH test solution is required for each test, so the number of tests is determined by the number of drops in the bottle.

Is the Hygen pH Test Kit suitable for testing other liquids besides water?

The Hygen pH Test Kit is designed to test the pH levels in a range of water-based environments, including plant water, aquariums, and ponds. However, the kit may not provide accurate results when used to test non-aqueous solutions or fluids with a high concentration of certain chemicals.

How often should I test the pH levels in my garden or plants using the Hygen pH Test Kit?

Regular pH testing can help you maintain optimal conditions for plant growth. It is recommended to test the pH levels in your garden or plant's water once a week for the best results. However, the frequency of testing may vary depending on factors such as plant type, climate, and any changes made in your garden, like adding fertilisers or new plants.

How do I know if I should adjust the pH level in my garden or plants?

Different plants have different pH requirements for optimal growth. By comparing the pH level found when testing with Hygen pH Test Kit to the ideal pH range for a specific plant or the normal range for gardens (usually between 5.5 to 7.5), you can determine if adjustments need to be made. If the pH level is not within the ideal range, consider adjusting it with appropriate soil amendments or water treatments.
