  • po4 test kits

    I have the salifert po4 test kit. When you guys report your results are you doing the lower sensitivity or higher sensitivity tests. When I do the normal test I get zero But when I do the higher sens. test It' s a little blue but I can only narrow it down to maybe three of the choices. Hard to tell. Should I go by the high or lower sens. results. I think I'm going to go with the hanna are you guys still doing that group buy. Does it give a digital result or is it a color comparision? How does it work ? I guess I would need regents and cleaning curvettes too. How does the the group buy work( check , money order, cc.)Who would I send it to?

    Just tested mine today. If you use the high res, pick the color closest to what the test vial indicates and cut it in half for the actual measurement. You have to use the high res if nothing is indicated in the low mode. HTH

      The Hanna reads the color for you and shows it on the display as the actual value.

          Steve, I believe Madison is now doing the group-buy & he's waiting to hear back from his source regarding availability. Bob

              regarding the group buy.

              there are only so many of these at the US hannah location. I have asked for 10 but it looks like we might need more. They have a few right now and those could get shipped out quickly, then it might be 2-3 weeks before the next shipment goes out and so on. Also we are competing with other vendors that order from them also. For somereason, I don't get all of them

              Price is $146 per unit if I remember correctly. I haven't even asked yet, but I presume this does not include the reagents.

                I'm in no huge hurry, just put me on list somewhere. I can wait. But I do want one.
