Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?

The Hanna Phosphate checker is an awesome little tool that will give you accurate easy to read results.  If you have bad eyes or have a hard time with color change test kits, the digital read out on the Hanna checkers is super nice and easy to read.  The biggest key with Hanna checkers is keeping the vials nice and clean for consistent results.

Three simple steps to results. The Hanna Phosphate Checker bridges the gap between simple chemical test kits and professional instrumentation. Accurate, affordable and easy to use. First, zero the instrument with your water sample. Next, add the reagent. Last, place the vial into the Hanna Phosphate Checker, press the button and read the results. Done.

Hey Mark,
The phosphate checker itself comes with enough reagent for 5 tests. Reagent refills are sold in packs of 25 and can be found right here:

Does this meter require periodic calibration with some kind of calibration solution?
Question by: Eric on Jun 19, 2014 8:50:00 PM
Hi Eric,
One of the first steps every time you test is to zero out the meter, then you add reagent and test the actual sample. This is done every test but It does not require any sort of extra calibration procedure on top of that.

  • Not for Reefers By ReefDoc on 10/29/2015

    First and foremost, if you are a reefer, this is not the checker for you. The ULR is the right one for a reefer. This will measure to an accuracy of +/- 0.04 but as a reefer you want 0 to 0.03 so that makes this useless. Oh and the packets of reagents are not good at all, come on Hanna get the proper reagents made already.
  • Love that you get an exact readout. By Matthew on 10/26/2015

    This would be the ultimate tester if the reagent was alittle easier to manage. You are trying to poor powder from a little pouch into a tiny cylinder you think you got it all then you realize there is still powder stuck in corner of pouch... Then you ask is my test result accurate?? They need to come up with a better solution to adding the powder even if just a bulk buy option that comes in a container with a little scooper like the nyos or salifert powders come. And to top all of that of you are on the clock when you are trying to get this powder into test tube you have three minutes to get powder from pouch to tube without spilling then you need to get it completely mixed into water without air bubbles or finger prints or the machine turns off then you are left to recalibrate machine with different test tube of source water then test water powder is in... Is it accurate???? Exactly hate questionable results but once you get hang of can definitely get a number and much more accurate then any color matching test out there... Just need a better delivery system for reagent and problem solved.
  • Effortless By Onnie P on 10/5/2015

    Works like a charm for me. I'm a bit color blind, this really helps.
  • Works fine By Carmen on 7/21/2015

    Like others said, the packet is awkward. I got around that by after cutting the top of the foil off, I pry open the top of the packet with sissors until it creates a point, then carefully tap the foil on the edge of the vial until all the powder falls in. I do, however, have a lot to say about the calcium test...
  • okay product By palm162 on 7/20/2015

    it is a good product and accurate but beware the packets of powder are really difficult to get into the tube. other than that good product.
  • Hanna- do right to your customers and fix the packet!!! By Mrod on 6/27/2015

    Hanna needs to redesign their packet design. If you like stress and frustration this is for you. Bottom line the packet design is a joke that outweighs anything else that is positive.
  • Easy By Bill on 6/16/2015

    Very organised and accurate
  • Seems okay By Homebrwr on 5/31/2015

    This is the first Phosphate test kit I have owned. Simple to use but as others have stated getting the powder out of the package is very tedious and not sure how accurate the reading is if the exact amount is not added...
  • Simple fast accurate testing method. By RAMON on 5/17/2015

    I used this tester for the first time yesterday , and was surprised how easy and accurate it was. Testing water can already be a long dreaded task, but this hannah checker makes it a snap!, and its accuracy was great as well
  • Good Investment By Pipe Doctor on 5/16/2015

    This device takes the guesswork out of trying to associate a color shade with a number, however, the test cover does not fully close and they only give you 6-7 reagents for testing. So out of the box you (1) have to hold down the top cover when a vial is inside and (2) limited to only 6-7 tests before you need to buy more.
  • Small Complaints By Stephen on 5/6/2015

    It seems to test well but the tester lid doesn't always snap closed properly. Also the packets of test powder are a little hard to get the powder out easily.
  • Good tester By Russell on 5/4/2015

    This tester is so much handier than the API test. It gives you an actual number instead of guessing at a color. It is also way more sensitive than the API tests. The downside is trying to get all of that reagent from the packet into that little vial without spilling it all over the place AND doing it within the time given. If it takes you too long, you have to start over. All around, a good device with a couple of quirks.
