    Look what arrived after a 4 week wait. :thumbup: Hanna Iodene, Calcium and Alkalinity Checkers. Ordered extra reagents as well.
    Hope it is all worth-it! Now for understanding how they work.

    Ordered them on E-bay from NIS (National Industrial Supply) USA. Excellent service. The package entered the country within 4 days, but then SARS got hold of it on OR Tambo. Waited 4 weeks to be cleared!!!!
    That aside, I'm very chuffed!!!!

    Although I bought it through E-Bay from NIS you can check the products out on their website as well. www.nissales.com
    What I really like about them apart from their excellent reputation on E-Bay, you can pay with an International Credit Card or Paypal and they ship worldwide.

    I did not order the phosphate checker. Just ordered the checkers of the tests I find most tedious to do :blush:
    Gonna use these 3 Checkers and see how they work. Would love to buy the Magnesium Checker, but theyre not available yet.

    They do have the phosphate checker...$47,49 with 25 sachets of reagent or $37.50 without reagents.

    Apparently they are almost double the price of the ones people have brought in themselves. Perhaps we could organize a GROUP BUY amongst the people that are interested.
