Hanna Instruments HI758 Marine Calcium Checker Test Kit – Saltwater Aquariums

Calcium presence in water supplies results from passage over deposits of limestone, dolomite, gypsum, and gypsiferous shale. Its concentration may extend from 0 to several hundred milligrams per liter, depending on its source and treatment. Calcium is necessary in plant and animal nutrition since it is an essential constituent of bones, shells, and plant structures. Calcium in water as carbonate is one of the primary components of water hardness which can cause pipe or tube scaling.
