Phosphates are particularly important for the growth and development of plant roots, and hence are one of the most common fertilizers used in agriculture. In addition, phosphates are usually utilized in detergents and are needed, in small quantities, for heating systems. However, high concentrations of phosphates can cause environmental pollution: they are for example a primary cause of eutrophication. For these reasons, it is necessary to closely monitor the phosphate levels present in both civil and industrial waste water.

Experience Level: Intermediate

Low Range Phosphate Meter

It is not clear from your catalog that Hanna Instruments Low Range Phosphate Meter w/ Kit, Case, and Standards does not include any reagents required to operate the meter. I found out after receiving my meter that reagents have to be ordered separately. This has caused a delay in my use of the meter. That reagents to use this meter are not included and have to be ordered separately should be made clear in your catalog description of this Hanna product.
