 Hi  All,
 
 I  have  access  to  the  ground  water,  tap  water  (from  municipal  water  supply)  and  RO  water;  I  would  like  to  measure  the  PH  and  TDS  for  these  three  water  samples.
 
 Can  somebody  point  out  to  the  right  source  which  is  quite  economical  for  getting  these  water  parameters  measured.
 
 
 Regards,
 Sashi.

 for  pH  you  can  get  the  test  kit  from  most  LFS  (try  the  shops  in  Rezimental  Bazar).  TDS  I  guess  you  need  to  go  with  the  meters  available  in  the  market.
 
 I  will  PM  you  details.

 Well  you  have  to  get  a  pH  and  TDS  meter  to  do  the  job  for  you.  
 
 However,  I  don't  understand  what  difference  will  it  make  to  measure  the  parameters.  Normal  aged   tap  water  with  daily  water  changes  are  enough  for  any  discus.  You  donot  need  to  worry  about  TDS  and  pH  for  them  unless  they  are  wild  caught.
 
 Even  wild  caught  ones  can  be  kept  at  a  high  pH  of  8.  
 
 Its  better  to  hav  a  constant  pH  rather  than  a  varying  one  for  it  does  more  harm  than  good.

 is  the  ph  and  carbonate  hardness  the  same  thing?
 
 I  have  a  test  kit  that  measure  carbonate  hardness  in  DKH
 
 Is  that  the  same  thing?
 
 Please  advice

 Ph  and  carbonate  hardness  are  not  same,  although  they  are  linked  to  some  extent  but  there  is  no  direct  relation.
 To  test  ph  either  get  a  ph  test  probe  or  ph  test  strips.
 pH  test  strips  are  quiet  cheap  and  will  be  available  at  any  store  that  sells  lab  chemicals,  they  are  available  at  LFS  also,  but  would  be  a  bit  costlier.
