    Might be a stupid question but do you have fish? Lol only my experience says that some fishes will die if the gh/kh is too high so a test wouldn't do any harm. If it's naturally mid range you probably don't need to do it often

    So, kH is what keeps your pH from crashing, gH tells you how high the amount of dissolved minerals. While good for plants, I use the kH specifically for my fish...

    Gotcha thank you Jocelyn. The kit I seen was a combo gh/kh, I already have a basic water test kit so looks like I should get that one too. Thank you!
