Easy and Precise measurement By GUnit on 4/3/14GUnit would recommend this product to a friendThis is the easiest and quickest test kit for phosphate that I've used. I'm a sucker for precision and not having to guess at colors so this test kit is ideal for that.
The couple of recommendations that I would have for people buying/using this test kit are:
1) When doing the test use BOTH vials. This is key to avoid having the meter turn off on you while you combine the reagent with the sample (2 minute shake time vs 2 minute auto shutoff.... :( ) Fill both with the appropriate amount of sample. Set one aside with the cap on. Add the reagent to the second and begin the 2 minutes mix/shake. About half way into the shake drop the first non-reagent sample into the meter and calibrate. After you're done shake drop the vial with reagent in an get a reading!
2) Buy more reagent immediately (or shortly thereafter) as you only get 10ish reagent packets in the kit.
Awesome By David on 3/25/14David would recommend this product to a friendThis a great meter,I am color blind so these types of meters are a must.
Wow! By the shack on 3/22/14the shack would recommend this product to a friendthis is a great meter being in the wastewater industry this meter is just as good as any desktop meter you can buy. They must have reprogramed these meters because mine times out after three minutes which is more than enough time to analyze a sample. The packets they supply are hard to use, however, the reagents out of the box you can buy are fantastic. This is great easy way to measure phosphates accurately, affordably, and fast. Good bye I say to the days of guessing which color is closer for 60 dollars this and a box of reagents are the best invesment for the money you can buy for a sps tank.
Less Guess By Tim on 3/20/14Tim would recommend this product to a friendFinally a low range phosphate test that I don't feel I'm guessing with. I'm surprised the 25 count reagent box doesn't fit properly in the case.
Hanna phos checker By guy on 3/18/14guy would recommend this product to a friendBeats trying to compare to a color chart which you can not see a difference in. Digital readout is great
once again great phos test but not enough reagents By jeff on 2/28/14jeff would recommend this product to a friendeasy to use. simple to read.
but nowhere does it mention the lack of reagents on the info page. forget that for $50 they could toss in more tests. even if they toss in thirty tests and charge you $60, id be okay with it cus the test is worth it. but i placed a $400 order and could have got the additional reagents with free shipping if it just mentioned that it was needed. but now i had to pay for addition shipping.
just feels kind of busch league for such a great product bought from such a great company.
Outstanding By Ourisland42 on 2/20/14Ourisland42 would recommend this product to a friendUnbelievable! Best money spent. Spend the extra money you will not regret it. Yes the reagent packets can be difficult at first..... I just cut off one corner off the packet (small opening) and tap the powder into the glass container. Works every time for me. No more color wheel / charts! I keep the old color wheel around to remind me of the difficulty / guess work I previously had. When it is time to reorder reagent packets, one look at the color wheel and I don't mind spending the extra money on the packets. Buy larger quantities to save money. No more guessing. As always, LOVE the BRS experience!!!
Surprised By Mike on 2/19/14Mike would recommend this product to a friendI love having this tester. The other tester I used I had to compare colors. Now I just have to read the digital number. It gives me a more accurate reading then my guessing what color it is.
Easy to Use By Matt on 2/17/14Matt would recommend this product to a friendThe Hanna Phosphate checker is very easy to use and does all the work for you. Works for most, but be cautious if you are an SPS junkie and/or looking to run an ultra low nutrient setup, as this checker has a margin of error of up to +/- .04The actual piece of equipment is great, however the reagent is a different story. The packets aren't really user friendly and only six packets come with your order.
Very Simple to Use By Tim on 2/15/14Tim would recommend this product to a friendI can't really say much else. This just works. I should have purchased additional reagents.
decent By shane on 2/14/14shane would recommend this product to a frienddoes the job, may have fluctuations in readings. Only comes with three reagent packs.
Great, but buy more regent right away By Mtthbrook on 2/9/14Mtthbrook would recommend this product to a friendProduct works great and is easy to use but your going to need more reagent than they include so you may as we'll order the 25 pack from brs at the same time
