To remove child safety cap push red tab left with thumb of one hand while unscrewing cap with free hand Fill a clean test tube with 0.2 oz. (5 mL) of water to be tested (to the line on the tube) Add 5 drops of Indicator Solution holding dropper bottle upside down in a completely vertical position to assure uniformity of drops Cap the test tube and invert tube several times to mix solutions; do not hold finger over open end of tube as this may affect the test results Determine the pH reading by matching the colour of the solution against those on the pH Colour Chart; the tube should be viewed against the white area beside the colour chart The closest match indicates the pH of the water sample Do not allow Test Solutions to get into aquarium. Read directions thoroughly before testing. A reading of 7.0 is neutral above 7.0 is alkaline and lower than 7.0 is acidic; an acceptable pH range is between 6.8 and 7.6. The best time to check the pH is in the morning. As the sun comes up and the plants begin photosynthesis the pH will rise. Minor fluctuations in pH level throughout the day are normal and will not harm pond life. Extremes in pH however can stress fish and plants. Rinse the test tube with clean water after each use. Colour comparisons are best made in a well-lit area.
