A good, reliable phosphate test kit should be accessible to any serious reefer. We have found the Milwaukee MI412 Phosphate checker to be one of the most reliable test kits to measure phosphates. Excess amounts of phosphates (PO4) can actually inhibit coral growth and coloration. The most notable addition of phosphates added in a reef tank will be from the food you feed, and their is media out there to remove phosphates from the water in the tank like GFO. When running any type of phosphate removal media you should have a test kit to know that it is actually working and when to change out the media.

Ehh By Jonathan on 3/24/2019Jonathan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBought one of these and couldn't get it to work, Took it my local LFS and they couldn't get it to work. Called BRS and they sent me a return shipping label. Took it to a 2nd LFS and they couldn't get it to work. Sent it back to BRS and they detected it was faulty.
I already have a Hannah tester and I got this one thinking it was like the Salinity tester Milwaukee has, but it's not. This is the same thing as a Hannah, You still have to get the sample, Test it once, Pour powder into the bottle, shake, etc, then get a reading. I was hoping it was quick and simple like the salinity but it's not. Same exact thing as the Hannah tester and a 1/3 of the price.
Save your money, Get the Hannah tester. You can even get the normal Hannah Phos tester and the Hannah ULR Phos tester BOTH for 2/3 of the price of this.
Fantastic By Jason on 4/3/2018Jason would recommend this product to a friendWhen I first purchased this I felt like maybe it was a mistake to spend so much on a phosphate checker, but after using it for a few weeks I'm SUPER glad I have it. It is so much easier to use and much more reliable than any other phosphate test kit on the market. Phosphate is one of those parameters that has a very narrow window to maintain good levels. The difference between 0.1 and 0.9 is HUGE and a very big deal to the health of your corals. So, having a tester that can accurately and reliably tell you where you are every time is an enormous benefit.
Very well made, comes with lots of extra test packets, couldn't ask for a better meter.
