Starting at: $12.99
JUNK By Adam TJ on 7/17/2014Adam TJ wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is the WORST tester I have ever used. It's sad they put Hanna name on it. It reads 540+ when my calcium was under 300 (because I kept turning my dosing pump down then off). The instructions are clear and easy to read use RODI, reagent, and tank water in said order; bla bla bla.
I wish some one would give me $20 bucks for it only used it 3 time now I use Red Sea and love it. Salifert is ok too.
Varied results also By stream on 7/10/2014stream wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSame issue here with the varied results.. Not sure I can know its accurate.
Accurate results with patience. By Chris on 5/9/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this tester along with my salifert test kit and the results are spot on if you are precise with the way you do the test. Any deviation from sample and regent measurements and this test will be thrown off into left field. I have compared the results of this tester with the salifert test kit and it is very accurate. I recommend this product to anyone who takes there time testing, if you like to fly through your tests then do not purchase this product. Also you need to use RODI water for your calibration, so with that being said if your RO system has depleted carbon blocks and filters then forget it. Great product!!!!
East testing By Charles on 4/25/2014Charles would recommend this product to a friendI have been using the Hanna checker for 3 months now. I don't think I could ever go back to any other type of test kits. I love the repeat illite of the test results. This is the second of 3 testers I have bought.
Not accurate By Zach on 4/5/2014Zach wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI tried this one for some time. Never had accurate or consistent readings. A little surprising because the phosphate checker and alk checker work great and are highly recommended. I use those weekly with great results. They need to go back to work and improve the cal checker.
Varied Results By Andrew on 3/28/2014Andrew would recommend this product to a friendI tested my water 10 times within a 1 hour period and literally had 10 different results. The range was from 400 ppm to 600 ppm. I then tested a known calcium level in my Reef Crystal Pro salt mix at 1.025 which ranges from 455-475 at that salinity level. The results were varied as well, from 420ppm to 500ppm (3 tests) The idea is nice but the execution is lacking. I followed the instructions exactly and used the exact amount of tank water. Watched the videos to ensure I was doing it right.
Great idea, poor results By Led on 3/27/2014Led wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI agree with others, it is all over the place.I have had mine for six months and have tried a new reagent and still no consistency.
Okay By sh55 on 3/10/2014sh55 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendResults are varied, I am not able to get a stable result and when compared to my Salifert Ca kit this kit reads 30-50 points higher.
I recommend watching the video Hanna posted on Youtube for more precise instructions and pointers.
When the instructions tell you to add .1ml of the sample, it is referring to your tank water not the mix in the cuvet or RODI.
Buyer beware not accurate By Rolando on 3/1/2014Rolando wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis product in my option should not be on the market until it is improved, just took three reading of the same water sample first 381 ppm second 449ppm third 495ppm using the same method, I have the Havana alk tester it's great, also the phosphate it's also very good. But don't spend your cash on the calcium tester if you do you'll be sorry you did.
Never the same result twice By Todd on 1/26/2014Todd wouldn't recommend this product to a frienddirections are a bit complicated (compared to other Hanna checkers) and it seems that I never get the same result twice. I have gone back to my previous CA test kit.
Good product By Keith on 1/14/2014Keith would recommend this product to a friendToo many steps involved for my liking and doesn't always seem accurate but overall I think it's better than most other tests.
7 out of 10 By Jordo on 12/8/2013Jordo would recommend this product to a friendThis isn't what you would expect from Hanna. The read out is great to have but the directions are a bit complicated. As a Nurse I am very used to small dose syringes and using precise lab equipment and this is kind of a pain for me. I have tried 3 tests on the same sample of water and got 3 different reading approx 30-40 points off. I'm still getting used to this test so maybe It will get better. I am a little disappointed =(

does the hanna checker come with the reagents, or do I need to order regents separate?
