Aquarium Nitrate Filter Testimonial This is the testimonial of my good neighbor Jeff. I sold him an Aquaripure Nitrate Filter (aka denitrator) when I moved next to him about 2 years before this was shot, around the beginning of 2009. He offered to do a video testimonial for You Tube. He is not affiliated with Aquaripure and will not benefit monetarily in any way from his testimonial ... although I might keep an eye on his house if he goes out of town ; )

SED - Nitrate Removal Nitron is the largest Israeli private water company. We are interested in finding end users and partners for our unique and proved solution of Nitrate removal for municipalities and manufacturing facilities within the international markets. Nitrate removal is a major issue when treating ground water. The existing methods used are IX and RO and have problems such as low recovery rate, environmental contamination, expensive maintenance and Brine (concentrate) treatment as well as high energy consumption. Nitron developed a solution that provides good answers to the challenges mentioned above. Nitron is currently managing 15 BOT nitrate removal projects for various Israeli municipalities. Reports shows that Nitron's installations save the municipalities between 40% to 50% of their previous cos
Drummond water has toxic levels of nitrates DRUMMOND - The DEQ is offering free nitrate testing. Only 15 people live in Drummond, and their surrounded by farmlands. That's why their wells are so high in nitrates. "We're collecting samples to look for nitrates. We're looking for other information as to where the nitrates for this well are coming from," said Flint Hall, a DEQ Hydrogeologist. Today's tests revealed the water in this Drummond well were close to 30 milligrams per liter. "Elevated levels of nitrate interfer with the body's ability to use oxygen," said Hall. Nitrate levels are so high in Drummond that no one drinks out of the wells. Instead everybody buys water bottles for their drinking water. "Can't drink out of the water because the nitrates have always been above 10," said Drummond Mayor Shirley Ellis. 10 milligrams per liter is the maximum amount of nitrogen that is considered safe to drink. Mayor Ellis Shirley has lived in Drummond for 6 years now, and he's not once dared drink straight from his well.
Aquarium water test kits compaired ammonia nitrate nitrite This is just MY comparison of the two aquarium water test kits I have. They are both sold/manufactured by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals, INC. I have called the blue bottled test strip type API and the glass tube box type Aquarium Pharmaceuticals for ease of understanding which one I am referring to. Hope this is of some help to many people testing aquarium water quality with any of the two test kits I have used. This was my test and my point of view. If you have any suggestions or if you have a different view of how any of the test results work for you, I would be pleased if you ask questions or leave comments. Thanks for viewing.

Goldfish Tank - Bamboo Nitrate Filter & DIY Overflow / Sump 55 Gallon Tank with 7 goldfishes. This Bamboo Filter helps bring down nitrate levels. But make sure to continue with water changes because the bamboo is not a one stop solution. You can put any freshwater plant in your tank and it will do the same job of consuming some of the nitrates. However, nothing beats frequent water changes. I built the Dracaena Bamboo Nitrate Filter by combining these ideas: and this: I used the DIY PVC Overflow concept from here: I feed the Goldfishes gel food (mixture of green peas, carrots, spinach, sardines, freeze dried bloodworm & Knox gelatin) and New Life Spectrum Sinking Pellets. ***When you purchase the Bamboo shoots, make sure to 'quarantine' first for a few days. Do not install into the aquarium system until you've made sure there are no SNAIL eggs attached to your plants or they will hatch and multiply like crazy. I found 3 snails in my tank and disposed of it.

Ashton water rates doubling to fix high nitrate levels ASHTON - Water rates in Ashton are likely to double. The City Council has just completed a study on water contaminants, and is asking for public input in the next couple of weeks. Ashton has had borderline levels of nitrate in it's drinking water for some time, but a just completed study shows that in recent years the problem has gotten worse. High levels of nitrate hurt oxygen levels in the bloodstream, especially in babies and the elderly. This graph shows that the Department of Environmental Quality maximum allowed nitrate levels is being breached, especially in the last 2 years. "We've been given a consent order by the DEQ to take care of the problem," said Ashton Mayor Teddy Stronks. Ultimately that will mean the cost of Ashton water will more than double. Marvin Fielding, one of the engineers involved in the study says implementing water treatment to clean the water up is the route to go. He also says that digging a new well wouldn't solve the problem, because most of the ground water in the area is contaminated. "There are a number of contributing factors to the nitrate problem. Farming is one. The acquaifer is sensitive, there is a shallow soil column that overlies the basalt. Any nitrate that is applied on that upper layer, travels down into the water really easily," said engineer Marvin Fielding. Eileen Calonge has been living in Ashton for 67 years. Recently she stopped watering part of her lawn to save money, and while she doesn't want to pay extra for her ...

How to Test if Fertilizer Has Nitrates in it In this video we show you how to test if a fertilizer has nitrates rather than urea or ammonia as its nitrogen source. The idea is quit simple, in a strongly acidic solution the nitrates will behave like nitric acid and dissolve copper metal releasing nitrogen dioxide gas. Looking for this gas is a strong indication for the presence of nitrates. WARNING: these reactions produce toxic nitrogen dioxide gas, this must be performed outside or in a fume hood. To perform the test, simply mix some of your fertilizer with water to dissolve the nitrates and then mix it with hydrochloric acid. Then add in some copper metal. The reaction is very slow to start up unless you heat it. A nerdy way of heating it on the spot without using a heater is to add a small ball of aluminum metal, don't use too much or it will go out of control. Stir the mixture as the aluminum dissolves to distribute the heat evenly. After the mixture is heated, place a glass container over the mixture to keep the gases in. If nitrogen dioxide is forming the distinctive brown nitrogen dioxide will fill the container. And that's how you can tell if there are nitrates in your fertilizer. If you want to test for ammonia (in case you have ammonium nitrate) just mix some fertilizer with half as much sodium hydroxide and add a little water to cover it. If it starts bubbling and releasing ammonia gas then it contains ammonia. Our website For more information on the chemistry visit the web page at sites ...

Make Europium and Dysprosium Nitrate salts. In this video we make europium and dysprosium nitrate salts we'll need in upcoming videos. Instead of buying the salts directly from our chemical supply companies we decided to make them entirely using chemicals anyone can buy online or make themselves. In this case europium metal and dysprosium metal with nitric acid. The europium and dysprosium metal were purchased online from: The nitric acid was produced in our nitric acid video: The procedures for both salts is rather simple. First, obtain 2.5 grams of europium. Europium comes in mineral oil so it must be washed off with toluene. Then the europium is placed in a beaker where a total of 10 mL of water is added in small portions. This is added before the acid for safety reasons. After all the water is added and the reaction seems to have slowed down 10mL of concentrated 15.6 molar nitric acid is added. The solution is then heated to ensure complete reaction of all the metal bits. For dysprosium: 5g of dysprosium can be directly added to a mixture of 20mL of water and 20mL Nitric acid. Once again, heating the solution ensures complete reaction. Both nitrates are allowed to dry in the desiccator bag we made last week: Afterward, the nitrates are transferred to vials for storage and labeled. The europium salt produced will be Europium Nitrate pentahydrate The dysprosium salt produced will be dysprosium nitrate pentahydrate. We're going to use these nitrates for some cool ...

Test Stump Remover for Chlorate, Nitrate or Metabisulfite How to test tree stump remover for potassium chlorate, potassium nitrate, or sodium metabisulfite. All of these chemicals are useful and stump removers can be an easy to obtain source for them. The stump remover SHOULD be labeled. But if it isn't you can perform these tests. First mix an equal portion of sugar and stump remover and add sulfuric acid. This might cause the mixture to catch fire (add more acid if it doesn't go at first). If it does, it's most likely potassium or sodium chlorate (usually potassium). If it doesn't light with sulfuric acid, then try torching it. If it starts to burn on it's own, then it's potassium nitrate. To be absolutely certain, you can run the nitrate test we already showed in a previous video: If it's sodium metabisulfite, it won't burn with sugar under any circumstances. To confirm it's metabisulfite, in a separate container of 10mL of water add 1gram of the stump remover and 0.5 grams of iodine from one of our previous videos: If it is sodium metabisulfite it will fizz and dissolve as seen in the video. Once you've identified the stump remover you can start doing experiments!

Make Cobalt and Manganese Nitrates We show how to make Cobalt nitrate and Manganese nitrate needed to make manganese dioxide electrodes. WARNING: These are heavy metals and toxic if mishandled. In addition cobalt is carcinogenic. You MUST wear gloves and preferably additional safety equipment like dust masks and lab coat. A fumehood is recommended too. Making cobalt nitrate is very easy, just get cobalt carbonate from a pottery supply store and mix it with twice its mass in water. Then add nitric acid until it stops fizzing. That's all! The red solution can be dried to make cobalt nitrate crystals for storage. Making manganese nitrate is a little more complicated. Manganese dioxide is mixed with oxalic acid, water and nitric acid to produce manganese nitrate. Alternatively you can bubble nitrogen dioxide directly into the manganese dioxide. If the solution is yellow it's because there is some iron contamination. But this is not a problem for making manganese dioxide electrodes.

How to Make Ammonium Nitrate In this video we make ammonium nitrate from various off-the-shelf chemicals. Note: This is not cheaper than buying it directly, once again our objective is to explore the chemistry. Warning: The chemicals are corrosive and ammonia has a horrible smell, work outside or in a fumehood and wear gloves. First get 138 grams of sodium bisulfate and add just enough water to dissolve it, usually 300mL. Then get one mole equivalent of a pure nitrate salt. Some common salts include: Sodium nitrate: 85 grams. Potassium nitrate: 101 grams. Calcium nitrate: 118 grams (if using tetrahydrate) Dissolve the nitrate in a minimum of water, then mix the two solutions together. Neutralize the mixture with ammonia (using a pH meter to determine the endpoint). Filter the mixture to get rid of any insoluble materials if needed, then boil until sodium sulfate begins to precipitate. Then cool the mixture to 0 Celsius and filter. Dry the filtrate to obtain ammonium nitrate mixed with some leftover metal sulfates. For higher purity the solids can be mixed with 500mL of methanol which selectively dissolves ammonium nitrate. Filter again and evaporate the filtrate to obtain pure ammonium nitrate.
Controlling Nitrates in a Sal***er Aquarium Nitrates can kill every fish and coral you have in your tank if they aren't kept in check.

Global nitrogen pollution: nitrate build up from soils to the sea (by Philip Taylor) The creation of nitrogen fertilizers have greatly benefited humans by increasing crop yields and ensuring food security in many areas of the world. While some places need more fertilizer, like much of sub-Sahara Africa, many places are rife with nitrogen. The overabundance of nitrogen, particularly nitrates, creates a host of environmental problems, including dead zone formation, elevation of infectious disease, drive harmful algal blooms, enhance greenhouse gas emissions, among other negative consequences. The challenge ahead is maximize the obvious benefits while minimizing the damaging effects of nitrogen use. Here, I briefly describe findings presented in a paper published in the journal Nature ("Stoichiometric control of organic carbon-nitrate relationships from soils to the sea", April 22nd issue, 2010) that explains how nitrate accumulates from soils to the seas across earth's biomes. Our findings represent a new framework to understand the fate of nitrate in ecosystems worldwide, which could help management strategies targeting nitrogen pollution. Visit and http for more information on nitrogen related issues. Also, visit my personal website, for more detailed information about my work in nitrogen pollution.
