Hi all,

tried searching but haven't found it. How much do you dilute a test by to get a finer reading? Read it somewhere I'm sure.

My Hagen PO4 :006: test kit's lowest reading is 0.25. Currently under that and want to fine check it.

Cheers

It will depend on each individual test kit, it should say on the instructions.

Thanks y'all

About to run out of the PO4 tests anyway LOL(or swear - whichever)

Will check out the deltec stuff.

What digital meters are there? Not being funny, but I"m border-line tone blind so really battle with all these colour scale tests. The Tunze PH meter has been a God-send. Are they REALLY expenzive? What brands?
