Save your money. I get more accurate results using API phosphate test and its significantly less money. Measures ppm just like API however the Hanna checker shows 0.00 and API shows 0 to 0.25 ppm. Even contacted Hanna to see if it was broke and their first response was to buy the HI736. So they seem to be aware that it's junk. Also, once you open the box it's yours. Bulk reef supply does not except returns on opened items. A little hard to consider buying a second piece of equipment when the first one doesn't work as it should. Also bought the HI758 calcium checker that works flawless. Watch the YouTube video as the instructions are not clear.

'Reagent packets are difficult to open and pour into vial without spilling any. Otherwise it works great.
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.

Works like a charm for me. I'm a bit color blind, this really helps.

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...

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.

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...
