My pond seems to be dying.
I think I need to have my water tested.
Where is a good place to get water tested and what do I test for?


I work so I can buy things, give things & do things...

Texas A&M of course! Just had mine tested. Go online to pay and print the form. There are several choices but I believe the basic will cover your needs. It does not tell you dissolved O2. Preferably you can provide a surface sample and lower level sample from away from the shore. There's a charge per sample though. Rinse out a water bottle thoroughly using pond water fill and mail your sample in. Testing takes 5-10 days. The results are provided in ppm along with a score.

Yep, that's it. If you're in an area of pollution risk you may want to test for other stuff.

What do you mean dying?


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.
