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.

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...
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

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.
