    Wonder if we can get them local, well the US$ price I saw was $59 which is about R500, so an accurate test I wouldnt mind paying that...
    there are other testers also.

    This checker is great i have the PO4 and is ama zing. I paid R850 ex VAt then you still need to get the reagents for about R80 I have just ordered the Cal and Mag from the states. I will post pics as soon as I get them.

    I got my Po4 from hanna sa you can talk to Lucy her email is ct@hanna.co.za she will sort you out. But you can get 2 checkers from the states for the same price as you do for one in south africa. and yes they have the Cal, Kh and No2 checkers available. They are really really accurate i have seen a comparison between the hanna photometer and the checker and there is nothing in it the results are the same. The only problem is you need to follow the instructions to the last full stop or it will not be as accurate. Fingerprints and undiluted reagents will also affect your results.

    Oh and you need to order it, pay or it in full then you wait and wait and wait some more. I had to wait almost 6 weeks for the PO4 checker. oh and when you call and ask what is happening they say call head office.

    So I have just ordered it from the states and it will be here next week.
