it is costly, but i am glad i got it, it is very acurate, and easy to use once you manage to dump the packet in the cuvature.

I've been using this product for a few months and the only thing I could suggest is that Hanna make a liquid reagent available. Accuracy is right on with Salifert test kit.

This is a huge step up from trying to read different shades of a color. I just can't wait till they bring out other testers
More accurate way of testing By Don on 9/29/11

This unit is as close to lab results as you can get. Just 2 simple steps and wait the 3 minutes for the results. Much easier than matching a color to a card.
good product By Craig on 9/22/11

I totally like having a digital read out instead of try to match colors like the other test kits, but the Hanna Checker is a little hard to use. You have to be able to open a packet with a wide opening and pour it into a very small hole, in a short amount of time. It comes with two curvettes so I started using one for the "zero" and the other for the phos reading. I still don't like the packets though, it's hard to empty all the contents without spilling reagent powder.

The Hanna Phosphate Checker is a great product that makes testing phosphate so easy and accurate. I tested the unit against another more expensive product and it was spot on in three different tanks. Can't wait to get my Calcium checker and then the Alkalinity...I hear they are also releasing a Magnesium checker as well.

This was the first hanna I tried. I now want every hanna test kit that is available. This thing is super easy and gives you such a pin point reading, no more guessing!
Don't need to carry a card. By JoeSuff on 9/16/11

No faster than adding drops, but not having to guestimate or ask my wife what color is the match is far nicer.

It's Great By Grey on 8/24/11

Finally able to check something without mixing a bunch of chemicals. It's easy to use, and accurate. What more do you need? The only problem I had with my tester was that the tester flip top lid is very tight and difficult to open without using your fingernails, but I am sure it will loosen over time. I am just thrilled that about not having to pay 40 to 70 dollars for 25 liquid chemical phosphate laboratories anymore.
