Ask a question
i was wondering if this ammonia checker although it is stated that is for fresh water, can it work with saltwater as well?
would it be as accurate?
This ammonia checker is only compatible with freshwater. Its generally used by people with saltwater aquariums who want to check there tap water for ammonia content (which would be indicative of chloramines being present in the water).
Easier to use and more accurate than chemical test kits.The HI 700 from Hanna Instruments uses an adaptation of the ASTM Manual of Water and Environmental Technology, D1426-92, Nessler method. The reaction between ammonia and reagents causes a yellow tint in the sample. Auto shut off after 10 minutes of non-use.
Dedicated to a single parameter
Two sample cuvettes and caps. One bottle of reagent A and one of reagent B.

Great Ammonia Test Kit! By Dean on 12/8/2014Dean would recommend this product to a friendHaving become frustrated with three or four different Ammonia test kits I made the plunge and got this one. Accurate, yes. Ease of use, yes. Results that I can count on, yes. Repeatable results, yes. Okay it is a little more expensive but I was getting so many mixed results with the other brands of kits by the time you add up the costs and frustration it is well worth it. Now I wish I would have bought this one first and saved lots of wasted money on the less expensive kits.
