Water Quality Testing
A.G.A Group will undertake a number of specific water quality tests to enable the confident assessment of any water quality issues you might have, be it in a pond or river and offer guidance and prescriptions on how to remedy the problems. We will test for a number of key water quality parameters to accurately identify specific deficiencies.
Because fish perform all their bodily functions in water and fish are totally dependent upon water to breathe, feed and grow, excrete wastes, maintain a salt balance, and reproduce, understanding the physical and chemical qualities of water is critical to successful management. In many respects and to a great extent ‘water quality’ determines the success or failure of the successful management of the aquatic environment; this is especially true where fish are concerned.
The main parameters tested for in water quality are: Dissolved oxygen, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, phosphate and hardness.
