Water Analysis

Water Quality Testing

 IK Caldwell use the Aqua Sure test for the analysis of hydroponic and irrigation water samples. Analysis can help you answer the following important questions.

Irrigation Water
  • Is your water suitable for irrigation?
  • What effect is it having on your soil nutrients and their availability?
  • Is it locking up or leaching essential nutrients?
  • Is it affecting soil salinity (EC), or pH?
  • Do you need to consider water nitrate levels in your crop nitrogen budget?

Analysis conducted - NO3, P, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, B, S, Cu, Mn, Fe, Na, Mo, Cl, pH, E.C., SAR, RSC, HCO-3, CO -2

Hydroponic Solution
  • What is in your nutrient solution?
  • Is your nutrient mix balanced?
  • Are pH, hardness and electrical conductivity (EC) correct?
  • How is recycling the run-off water affecting the nutrient balance?

Analysis conducted - NO3, P, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, B, S, Cu, Mn, Fe, Na, Mo, Cl, pH, E.C., hardness
