How To Use a pH Testing Kit

  • Remove the top 5cm (2″) of soil and place to one side
  • Break up the soil underneath to a depth of approximately 12cm (5″)
  • Place some of the lower level soil into a container and remove all stones and debris such as leaves and twigs
  • Break the soil up and leave to dry naturally
  • Once dry add the soil to the test tube up to the 1ml mark
  • Add one scoop of barium sulphate and add the pH test solution up to the 2.5ml mark
  • Put the cap on the test tube and shake. Leave to settle for 10 minutes
  • If the solution is taking too long to settle add another scoop of barium sulphate
