The Söll ammonia alarm is a long-term test for the continuous monitoring of ammonia (NH3) in salt and freshwater aquariums. In the middle of the colour scale there is a sensor that changes its colour from yellow and green to blue depending on the ammonia concentration in the water. When used correctly, the sensor has a service life of at least one year. Thanks to the suction cup, the attachment is very easy.
Ammonia alarm already shows ammonia levels from 0.02 mg / L and helps to notice critically high values.
Place the card clearly visible in the aquarium. When used for the first time, it can take several days for the sensor to adapt to the water. If there is no ammonia in the water, the sensor film turns yellow or pale yellow-green.
The ammonia alarm continuously detects ammonia in the water with a time delay of about 15 minutes (when the pH value drops after about 4 hours). Light sources with a stronger red component reduce the apparent sensitivity of the analysis unit.
As little as 0.02 mg / L ammonia (NH3) is enough for the sensor to turn green.
Occasionally remove algae from the sensor with a soft cloth. Avoid touching the sensor with your fingers as it is damaged by contact with skin oils. Do not use bleach, soap or sharp objects to clean the sensor. Certain ornamental fish medication can discolour the sensor.
