Great Tool but can be wasteful By Europhyllia on 3/18/11

I like this checker. It works well. But I wish I could change the setting on the auto-shut off to last longer than 10 seconds.
It takes 3 minute to process. If I get side tracked and pay attention to something else I miss the 10 seconds in which the result is displayed. Then I have to use up another reagent package and start all over.

Always had trouble reading those color based checkers. This test kit defintely takes out most of the guesswork. Still takes some work to check but at least you know you are getting a good reading! One downside - buying all the refills could get pricey after a while.

Great little meter. Do read through the instructions first to get use to the symbols on the screen and the timing. You don't have a lot of time (but it's enough) and you will get use to it. Do buy an extra set of test reagents. The test is so much easier to perform you will actual do it so those first 6 test won't last that long.
I actually store one of the tubes inside the checker to make extra room in the case.
If I had any downside I would say the clasp on the case seems a little cheap, I think over time it might have issues. But none yet.
So easy to use! By June on 2/19/11

Purchased this along with the HC GFO. Will NEVER go back to a color chart test kit. When we used our other test kits for PO4, we had to walk through the house trying to get good light for an accurate reading. Now, all I have to do is read the meter while sitting at the table. Super easy to use. Makes me want to test more often since it's so easy. Also purchased the additional packets of reagent since this kit only comes with 6. A++

A great tester for the money. You do have to pay attention or you'll miss it. But once you get the hang of it, its easy. I would definately recommend it.
I love this thing! By Bob K. on 1/12/11

I've been struggling with Po4 test kits since I've been reefing. This makes it easy. It costs about the same as two high end test kits but the precision and readability of the results makes it worth every dime.

It works well and easy to use. Get the extra reagents you will want them down the road. Make sure you are watching it when its done as the reading only stays around for a short bit.
