With its high accuracy and low level detection at the touch of a button - the Hanna Phosphate Checker is revolutionising water chemistry for marine and fresh water fish enthusiasts.

Phosphate directly inhibits calcification by corals and coralline algae - even at low levels. The health of plants in freshwater aquaria will also be impaired by raised levels of phosphate in the water.

The optimum phosphate level - particularly for reef tanks - is often quoted as zero or 0.05 mg/L (ppm). Most chemical test kits will however find it very difficult to either detect or give accurate readings at these low levels.

With its ability to register the presence of phosphate in salt and fresh water at extremely low levels, the new Hanna Phosphate Checker offers a real ‘must-have’ addition to the fish lover’s equipment chest.

The City of Toronto also adds phosphate to our water supply, yet another reason to monitor: https://www.toronto.ca/services-payments/water-environment/tap-water-in-toronto/lead-drinking-water/corrosion-control/

Easy to use. The built in battery saver timer function often shuts off the checker before you complete the test. I use the 1st testing vial as a blank, and use the second for the reagent reaction. Discovered I have a phosphate problem triggered by fish foods (nori/two little fishes) that was leading to hair algae problem. Rowaphos is lowering the phosphate slowly..... Also discovered downtown Toronto water (with RO system in place) has a phosphate level of 0.19ppm, contributing to problem. I'm now running Rowaphos as polisher for RO water and in the main tank.
