Seachem Amonnia Alert Water Moniter
Seachem Ammonia Alert Water Monitor is helpful in detecting and continuously monitoring free ammonia in fresh water or marine aquarium. Using a suction cup, you can place it in the aquarium and know the ammonia level. While using this product, you don’t need any test kit or chemicals for detecting ammonia. This ammonia alert monitor lasts for over an year.
- Ammonia alert is an innovative color device for continuously detecting and monitoring toxic free ammonia.
- A sensor changes reversibly from yellow to green to blue, relative to the ammonia concentration.
- No test kits, chemicals, or procedures are needed.
- The device detects less than 0.05 mg/L (PPM) free ammonia and alerts.
- It lasts over a year.
- It requires marine or freshwater use.
- No sampling of water, chemicals, or test procedures are required.
- The presence of the free ammonia is detectable continuously with a response time of about 15 minutes.
Remove any algae growth from the sensor with a clean, soft material. Do not use bleach, soap, detergents or hard objects to clean the sensor. Avoid touching the sensor with fingers, since skin oils can damage it. Some dye medications may discolor the sensor.
Remove protective film. Then place the unit visibly anywhere in the aquarium or filter. In the absence of free ammonia the unit will assume a yellow or faint yellow-green color. It is normal for the dry sensor to have a greenish hue. It may take up to a few days for a dry sensor to equilibrate with the water. No sampling of water, chemicals, or test procedures are required. The presence of free ammonia is detectable continuously with a response time of about 15 minutes.
Response to decreasing ammonia is slower, requiring about 4 hours to go from TOXIC to SAFE on removal of ammonia. Sensitivity improves with age, provided the unit is not allowed to dry out, however, drying does not permanently impair the unit. For maximum sensitivity, the unit should be read under natural daylight or simulated daylight. Red enhancing light minimizes green and blue hues, decreasing the apparent sensitivity of the unit. The response of the unit may be checked by holding it briefly over the mouth of an ammonia bottle: color should develop rapidly.
