Nitrites are salts of nitrous acid which occur naturally or artificially in ground water. They are released in water from Fertilizer runoff water, sewage and mineral deposits.High levels of Nitrite are toxic to mammals and other lower forms like marine species. They disturb the oxygen delivering ability ofhemoglobin in the bloodstream.
Also, large blooms of Algae can grow due to high Nitrite level leading to hypoxia. Hypoxia dead zones created are deadly to almost all marine species.
Therefore, regularly monitoring of Nitrite levels is very essential and needs to be done judiciously in both marine and fresh water.
Our AQUASOL Nitrite Kit elaborates a range of 0 – 5.0ppm. This is based on color comparison and the colors on the comparator are clearly discernable, making the kit very easy to use. This kit is available for both Fresh Water and Salt Water.
