Essential Hydroponics Water Test
Recommended by SimpleLab™ for basic water quality testing to assess overall suitability for use in hydroponic agriculture and aquaculture. In particular, this testing package analyzes for key nutrients required for successful hydroponic gardens, including NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) as well as common contaminants and concerns like heavy metals (arsenic, lead, and strontium) and minerals. This testing package also includes a self-test strip for on-site testing of free and total chlorine.
This Tap Score test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a water sample for certified laboratory testing. The results will include detailed analysis of common water health concerns for hydroponic gardens.
