    Do you use this test for PO4 ?

    hello guys,

    I want to buy a hanna phosphate checker, do you use exactly this model? http://www.ebay.com/itm/COMBO-HANNA-...item4843afd8e6

    or exist another model with lower measuring range?



    what about this for test alkalinity? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hanna-HI-755...item5642cd7a3a

    I believe that is the phosphate checker other people have. You'll want to get extra reagent packs, because 25 will not last long at all.

    Yes I use both of those. Both are great.

    Some say the Hanna P checker can give you vastly different results in back-to-back tests. I have not experienced this myself.

    There is a Phosphorus checker that measures in parts per billion and then you convert over to phosphate using a multiplication factor (as there is a fractional relationship between phosphate and phosphorus) that test is supposedly more accurate or something. But the grand daddy is the Milwaukee kit.

    I use that tester, and like it.
    Results vary a bit, but not badly. No surprise, reading such a low value.
    Note that for the normal phosphate PO4 values, you need to take the phosphorous pbb, and multiply by 0.003
