Test measuring well water
How big of a water sample do I need to use to test TDS, GH and KH?
I bought a 5 gallon bucket as well as a small air pump and stone, filled the 5 gallon bucket up to a couple inches below the rim and let the air stone run for a day. The water itself sat in the bucket for another day until the TDS tester arrived in the mail. I tested it and got 100ppm.
Unfortunately Drs Foster and Smith sent me the wrong test kit so I have to go to the store to buy the GH/KH kit before I can test that.
Is that pretty much all the prep work you need to do to test your water? As far as the TDS score, where does that put me in terms of water quality for the aquarium? Any adjusting needed or is it alright?
