  • Hanna Instrument Testers

    Looking for feedback on the Hanna testers.

    I have a really hard time interpreting the Salifert and other color comparison type kits, especially the PO4 when trying to measure low levels.

    Please LMK your experiences and opinions,

    Mark

    I use the Alk regularly. I've used the Ca but I have heard it's not accurate at all.

      i use the alk regularly. with the ca im not sure ive noticed any accuracy issues, but they are a little confusing to use which could be an issue, alk is extreamly easy to use and the reagents arent that expensive either

        I have the phosphate, alk and calcium. I love em. I double checked them all with different test kits and have no problem with inaccuracies.

          i use the ulr phosphorus as i never get any reading on the phosphate but you can convert it over to po4

            I just started using the Alk one (as in Sunday was the first Hanna test in my house), and I was really impressed with how easy it was. It was the same as the Salifert I've been using, but so much easier.

            I have never gotten any Phosphates show up in my Marineland kit, which I know does not have the best reputation for quality, so I started thinking about getting Hanna's Phosphate one, maybe I'll hold off.

              I'd go with the ulr phosphorus if you do, that actually shows up when my salifert reads 0, not to mention po4 is hard to read on tests

                I know the phosphorus test reads PPBillion vs the PO4 which 'only' does PPMillion but at some point low is low enough and it really doesn't matter if it's below Zero PPM does it?

                  I use PO4 and Alk.
                  Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
