    awt salt analysis

    AWT, owned by aqua-medic, recently tested many synthetic sea salts to see how they compared to one another. although there are obvious flaws in the testing, it’s still very interesting and something worth looking at. check out [AWT’s results] to see how your salt stacks up against the rest.

      Im afraid there results are of limited use, I dont think may aquarists add x grammes to y volume and leave it at that regardless of salinity. We continue to add until salinity is right so those samples that were low on slinity (likely had absorbed atmospheric moisture) are not representative of results the aquarist could expect.
      Further little reference is made on any of the tests to NSW values. They can be obtained with some work but they could have given quoted values. Where they are provided (Bromine) they are in different SI units from the results.
      My grading – could do better. From a testing company I would expect Much better.

      Well said gnarly. It seems every salt testing has significant flaws…
