    AFAIK the only "Marine/saltwater" Henna Checkers that are availibly are the Alkalinity, Nitrite and Phosphorus (which I beleive can be converted to Phosphate)

    can someone confirm this?

    to convert phosphorous in ppb to phosphate in ppm you multiply by 3.066 then divide by 1000

    That's right Preshan, you do get a phosphorus in Marine, but not the phosphate. Adee was taking about a phosphate checker? Which does he have phosphate or phosphorus?

    Preshan, how have you found the accuracy of it vs the common test kits?

    this site will give you all the info
    Hanna Checker Ups Resolution with HI736 Ultra Low Range Model


    lighty i hadn't used a common test kit before purely because they too expensive and the readings are not to accurate.

    Hi Guys,

    Just want to confirm which of the Hanna test kits we need for Phosphate. Is it the Phophate ,Phosphate LR (Low Range) or the Phospherous ULR (Ultra Low Range).

    If anyone knows the difference with the above or the reason for so many ranges please share, it will be super to understand why.

    Phosphate checker

    Hi guys. Also bought my phosphate checker from Hanna Instruments based in Bedfordview. If I remember correctly, plus minus R1 300 (VAT included) as well as 25 reagents. Idol Marine advised me to take the high range (up to 2.5ppm), the other one is too low. Works very well.

    Are you not suppose to get Liquid Reagents with these Checkers? Thought they phased out the powder sachets! Seen a Video from Mr Saltwater the other day and he mentioned something like that!
