Decent for the price. By Joe on 2/21/2013

I don't know why so many people are having a hard time getting powder from a package to a vile. A little common sense goes a long way. The unit is fairly accurate, sufficient for most. It seems to be time sensitive, as I do find variations of .01 testing the same solutions a few times in a row. The glass vials also came with abrasions, not sure if this affects accuracy. Regardless of everything said, it beats any vial placed next to a color chart while being held up to the light.
I will be upgrading to the low range unit.

Watch the hanna video on youtube. Cut the pack at an angle (corner to corner) then give it a little squeeze. Think milk carton.

Pain to use. Get a funnel and it is easy. Great hanna product.

Reagents for the Phosphate checker come in little foil packs. They are a bit of a pain to work with. A solution I have found to get all of the reagent into the test vial is to use a very small chemistry / test tube funnel. I understand the foil packs are easy to produce, but Hanna should really come up with a better solution. (Like including a chemistry funnel - HINT HINT!) I buy a new pack of reagents every time I buy more GFO, that way I never run out!

If you are currently buy a hanna checker be sure to get at least one box of this. It will take a few tries do find the best way to get the reagent out. So the more the better!

The Reagents packets can be a pain trying to get all the Reagents in the test tube vial may be getting a funnel to ensure that the entire Reagent goes into the test tube. 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 would recommend getting this the same time as the test kit. The test kit comes with only 6 packets from what i remember.

After some trial and error, I cut the packet at an angle, open it a bit, then lightly tap the contents into the glass vile until empty.

The product is perfect! Getting it into the vile is not. Buy a funnel and save yourself some grief.
Better get these with the checker By Bob on 1/26/2011

You fly through the test packets fast, so get a box of 25 when you get the checker, you'll need them soon anyway.
