    Hi SIMS, do you want the local La Motte supplier or info on an alternative machine.

    I saw one once on animal planet / discovery being used by Aus Aquarium where one simply add reagent to a vial of water, put it in the machine and press the relevant button. That would be cool.

    I will see if she can assist

    :LOL: Pete where you been...thats how people do business in SA.

    Frans I'm looking for a units as you mentioned. The Hanna ones seem great BUT the SA agents don't seem to know their products and are not too interested to work for their money. They just said...ah I dunno if it will work in salt water. When I said "well maybe tou can find out?" the guy said "perhaps - can I get your number"

    I have now started dealing with guys overseas as 1. they want money and 2. they know how to do business and in almost all my shopping I land up saving money.

    Nice tester but the NO3 range is not good enough - 0-13mg/l and PO4 is 0.0-1.5mg'l
