Product Description


The iDip® 486107-MA-K 570 Marine Starter Kit comes with:

  • 4 tests pre-installed from the app-store, including pH, Free Chlorine, Combined Chlorine (Chloramines) and Total Alkalinity
  • test strips to test 25 water samples for Ammonia (486654), Total Alkalinity (486680), pH-BT (486657), Calcium, Magnesium (calculated), Total Hardness high range (486656), Nitrate (486655) & Phosphate (486814) (does not include in-app purchases)
  • This kit includes the new reagent called BT-pH, which has an extended range which is better for salt water

To carry out tests, you need:

  • to download & install each test from the app-store from £4.95 each (prices do vary depending on exchange rates). This is a one-off cost, once a test has been downloaded onto your smart device from the app-store it can be used indefinitely
  • Purchase the reagent/test strips for that test, for a complete range.

New tests are constantly developed - making this a testing device which can grow with your needs and requirements. It also makes it very efficient, as the user only pays for what they actually uses.

Data is seamlessly transferred between the two devices when paired with the eXact iDip® 570 photometer using Bluetooth® wireless technology that syncs and transmits test results in real time. The application stores the test results history of multiple water sources. Data can be shared via email and the built-in GPS feature allows for easy retrieval of water testing locations.

Suitable for: water quality testing of salt water in aquariums and marine life (Please note, NOT suitable for cloudy water)

To test water from taps, wells private water supplies etc,  we recommend using eXact iDip.

Testing Range: between 1 and 0.01, please see table below

For a complete range of potential testing parameters please see the table below. Reagents for each parameter have to be purchased separately - details in the table below. Please contact us to find out more or ask for other reagents which may not yet be available online.

Automatic calculation of Mg2+ if you do Calcium Hardness and Total Hardness. Calculated Mg2+ range from 437-1425 ppm as Mg2+.

To obtain results for Magnesium Hardness (Mg):

  1. Complete tests for Calcium Hardness UH Marine and Total Hardness UH Marine.
  2. Press Results, values for Mg will be calculated automatically and displayed on the Results page of the app.

NOTE: Default units of measure for Calcium, Magnesium and Total Hardness are set to CaCO3 when you first download the app. If you prefer to have the results in Ca2+, Mg2+, DH or other values - please change the setting in your app. Go to Profile-> Preferred units of measure and choose for each parameter separately. If Magnesium Hardness is not showing in the list, do at least one test and hit results, so Magnesium Hardness is calculated. Then you can go into Profile and change the setting. Even if you enter Calcium and Total Hardness values in Manual entry, it will do the trick and you will be able to change preferred units.
