I dont have the kit but I would assume most KH/GH kits are the same # of drops represent degrees of hardness. So KH is 7 and GH is 6

The Hagen KH/GH kit measures in ppm and not degrees.

For GH, you multiply the numer of drops by 20.

For KH, you multiply the number of drops by 10.

Your GH is 6 drops x 20 = 120 ppm

Your KH is 7 drops x 10 = 70 ppm

To convert ppm to KH or GH, you mulitply ppm x 0.056.

GH = 120 ppm x 0.056 = 6.72

KH = 70 ppm x 0.056 = 3.92

You can email Hagen with your address and they will mail you a replacement manual.
