I live in central Oklahoma and I am seeking some advice on where to obtain a water test kit.
Water is clear and can see 2 foot down. However it hasn’t been this clear since I bought the property.
Before I found this forum and subscribed to pond boss magazine I read a article by the Oklahoma Department of wildlife conservation. The article suggested that putting straw barley hay bails in the pond upto 5 bails, and let it do its thing. Well that’s what I did back in May and now it’s super clear.
I would like to keep it that way and so I would like to get a good test kit and learn how to maintain good water chemistry.
Any guidance would be great.
Thanks, Daniel

Hach makes test kits. Hach water test kits

They make water test kits that will test 1 or many of parameters.

Off the subject, do you know anyone in that area with the last name of LeMaster?

Did you get your water tested?

Theres a few options besides a HACH test kit, besides it also gives you a Quality Assurance to have an outside test done. Noble Foundation,Oklahoma Sate University Extension, or local water authority can help give you the QA test.
