Packet design needs to be changed!!! By Mrod on 6/27/2015
Mrod wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
The reagent destroys the experience, ease of use and sometimes accuracy. It is not easy to dump the packet in even after watching how others have tried to make it work best. For such a good checker it's a shame Hanna cant offer pre-packed plastic tubes for the reagent and charge more as an option for those who would be willing to pay extra as the paper design is just terrible.
Excellent! By Keith92 on 6/18/2015

I highly recommend the Hannah Checker. I like being able to purchase 25 instead of 90 test. Would be better if it could be a solid pill type reagent instead of powder
useing the packets By Jerry on 4/9/2015

The packet for the regents takes some time to get the 'hang' of how to use them. I fumbled a few. It would be nice if Hanna had a cleaner way of delivering the contents so that it all goes easily into the bottle for testing.
Definitely worth every penny By Ozzie on 4/2/2015

Let's face it, phosphate testing is not fun, it's too hard to read the card colors. This takes all the guesswork out of the equation. The only caveat is that sometimes it's difficult to get all the powder in, so what I do is open the packet and pour it out onto a piece of paper thats folded in 1/2 (preferably colored) and then pour it in from there.

A must have for your meter! By Josh on 12/12/2014
Josh would recommend this product to a friend
Well, not much else to say other than you need these to perform the test. Kind of a pain to get all of the powder into the sample but it's much better than performing a color match test! BRS has basically everything you need and can answer any questions.

The title says it all. If you've got a Hanna 713 you'll definitely need to pick these up. The reagents should should last a little while too since you get 25. I don't mind retesting or testing more frequently because they're cheap. I'd recommend buying them at BRS because they treat their customers like gold.

Really nice product just takes time to pour the reagent but it's worth not trying to match colors

Works very well. Had one bad reagent (empty pouch) come in. Called hanna and they replaced the whole box. Very accurate and super easy to use.

I have used these for years with great success. Good company. Any issues just contact Hanna. I called once to question the reagents. They sent out a new batch no questions asked. A complete box. They also asked what batch number I was using. Seems they track to see if any ate bad or having issues.

No more color wheel!
Buy in larger quantities to lower your overall cost. I just cut off one corner that is about the opening of the container and tap the powder in. Excellent product, will reorder......... BRS is great!!!!
Worth it, for accurate results. By Felixpaws on 12/20/2013
Felixpaws would recommend this product to a friend
If you can get these with points, on sale or both, I'd recommend getting these. The Hanna checkers aren't more convenient, but more accurate than regular tests. For the price, you could get a Red Sea or other name brand reliable test kit, and compare results. Taking the middle ground on the numbers would be safer than just trusting one kit over another. Test with three good test kits, compare results, choose the median, and go from there. Easy peezey.

Takes a little extra time, but knowing you are getting an accurate reading and not a false sense of security makes it worth it.
I finally know what my phosphates really are. By bdmyers on 12/17/2013
bdmyers would recommend this product to a friend
Yes, it is a bit of a pain to use, but knowing I'm getting an accurate measure makes it OK. I'd rather make the extra effort and get a real reading than do it the easy way and get a false sense of security.

Best Product for testing Phosphates By Kenneth on 11/9/2013
Kenneth would recommend this product to a friend
This is the best product for testing Phosphates. I have taken all the guess work out of doing your phosphates test. No quest on how much chemicals to put, no guess on what color does the solution match. It is fool prof.

It's always a pleasure to use the Hanna phosphate checker and reagents.It's quick, efficient, easy ,inexpensive and accurate.. The guesswork and difficult color matching are taken out of the equation.

Decent for the price. By Joe on 2/21/2013
Joe would recommend this product to a friend
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.

Great product, but need s improvement By Rich on 9/24/2012
Rich would recommend this product to a friend
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!
Nice back ups By Nicholas on 6/1/2012

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.

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