When to test.
An established pond with healthy fish should be checked every month. It is only when you notice something out of the ordinary, and possibly during seasonal changes, that an additional test or two might be prudent.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A simple test, at the right time, can prevent a minor problem from becoming a catastrophe.
When starting up a new pond or Bio-converter system, daily tests may be required until the converter comes on line, then weekly for a couple of months until the system has stabilized.
