Marine Phosphate Ultra Low Range Colorimeter – Checker HI774

Marine Phosphate Ultra Low Range Colorimeter – Checker HI774

Introduction

The HI774 Ultra Low Range Phosphate Checker HC (Handheld Colorimeter) is a cost-effective solution for measuring phosphate levels in marine systems, specifically reef tanks. Testing for phosphates is a crucial practice for saltwater aquariums as it provides valuable insights into the water chemistry of your reef tank, ensuring the long-term health of corals. Excessive phosphate levels can hinder calcification, skeletal formation, and growth of coral species, especially SPS or small-polyp stony corals. Additionally, high phosphate levels can lead to nuisance algae growth, which can be detrimental to the overall health of your reef.
