Finally an easy to use easy to read phosphate meter that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I have tried different brands in the past and all the results were very hard to read. This unit reads it in digital versus me trying to read the colors which are usually very faint. I would recommend this Phosphate meter to anyone looking for a simple to use accurate reading.
Very happy By Aaron on 1/22/2012

Wow, this product is outstanding. No more reading shades of blue. It's accurate down to 0.01.
The only complaint I have is that you have a 3 minute time limit to mix the water and get the bubbles out., just to save the battery. The first time I tried this, I didn't make it in time. Be sure to have your reagent packet open and ready to pour. Also, limit yourself to the recommended 1.5 minutes regardless.
Good tester By bobby on 1/22/2012

I like the Hanna phosphate tester, you will need to be quick adding in your Reagents into your test tube because the monitor will turn off automatically and you will waste Reagent. I had issues with the monitor readings not reading correctly a couple time but overall this is a good tester get it I lover it. Overall the price at BRS is cheaper, the Quality is top of the line they really know there products and there knowledge is sure impressive they do there research too that’s why I love to shop here Shipping is super fast.

I was surprised when the tester arrived there was only enough reagent for 4 tests???
Would have been nice to know that when I got it so I could have ordered more.
there was some plastic ratteling around inside of it and whatever it was fell out while installing the battery. the unit didnt work to find out that the supplied battery was dead.
replaced batter, works like a champ!
easy to use, easy to read...
I think Steve has a valid point in his review 12/26/11

Spot on readings By Antole on 1/4/2012

Its one of the easiest test kits I have used. It takes 3 minutes and you have a perfect reading. I have used manual test kits but this one can be done over and over with the exact same results.

no more guessing on color!
Not as accurate as the HI-376 By Steve on 12/25/2011
Steve wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I wish I had done a bit more research about this before buying it. This Hanna model (HI-713) has an accuracy of +/- .04ppm when target levels for phosphate are usually considered < .02ppm. I would much rather have purchased the HI-736 Phosphorus Ultra Low Range Tester by Hanna. Too bad BRS doesn't stock both and explain clearly the difference between the two.
Poor Quality Build By AJ on 12/20/2011

I've had this for about a year, but only used it about 20 times. It broke due to a manufacturing defect. The Hanna customer service would not stand behind their product. Despite the defect, they indicated warranty was only 6 months and they wouldn't do anything.
Fantastic By Brian on 12/20/2011

Fantastic product, no more trying to compare colors with those horrible color cards. The only down side is the powder reagent, hopefully Hanna will develop a liquid reagent.

The Hanna Checker Phosphate PO4 Colorimeter is very easy to use and only takes a few minutes to make sure that your tank is where it needs to be! I have spent so much money on frags, fish and equipment - the cost of this item is well worth it! Make sure to add the extra packets to sve yourself from running out.
I plan on getting the other Hanna checkers for my tank
