Salifert Phosphate Test Kit

$19.99 


Item #: SF1133


Temporarily Out of Stock


Salifert Phosphate Profi-Test
  • If phosphate is present in too high a concentration there may be an increase in growth of undesirable algae and if the phosphate level is higher than 0.04 mg/L the growth rate of corals and calcareous algae may decrease by as much as 90%.
  • Washing fish food (a rich source of phosphates) after thawing can significantly reduce the input of phosphate, and using a high grade, phosphate free activated carbon can also help to keep phosphate levels as low as possible.
  • The Salifert Phosphate test kit detects, in less than 5 seconds, the level of phosphate present.
  • There are two different ranges within the kit: a low range for phosphate-phosphor from 0.01 - 1 mg/L and a medium range for phosphate-phosphor from 0.02 - 2 mg/L.
  • Sufficient for 60 tests.
  • Can be used for marine, fresh and garden pond water

The best one

Pros: Easy, quick and accurate

Cons: The color result could be a little confuse...

This is the best and easy test in the market for phosphate...if you have some issues looking a liitle light colors variation ..maybe this one isnt for you, but for me , super good , quick and accurate...like all salifert test kits

clumpy

Im happy with the quality of the Salifert test kits, but on the one I received, the PO4-2 was real clumpy and hard to get a scoop, even after shaking and trying to break it up.

Waste of money

I bought this to double check the accuracy of another brand of low range tester. The light blue at the low level is impossible to see and I tried many different light sources.

Vague and inconsistent

I needed a low range test consistent and clear to help with algae and coral growth, this was not it, after trying more than 5 times i got results that were inconsistent and not even the right color, the test was shades of blue and i got some odd green color. Stating it does low range was misleading as well, they just tell you to double the dose then divide by a number to get the low rate which is still tought when i cant even understand what shade and color the original color was. When i guessed it was at 0.10 I bought the Hanna colorometer instead and it tested 0.38 instead! which made more sense because i still saw algae and slow coral growth.

Simple Test

This test is simple to use...very clear directions. Also a low range test, however the scale is hard to read. If you have glasses, wear them, because you"ll need them to distinguish between the very similar shades of blue....one thing for sure though, you can definitely tell if your phosphates are TOO high. I would recommend this for the hobbyist that needs a general idea of phosphates...if you need very clear accurate results, don't buy this test.

Get a Hanna Phos Meter

I works well if you dont have any algea or cyno. it will read undetectable when you obviously have a phosphate issue. Spend the extra cash and get a Hanna Phosphate Checker.

So, So

I like that it provides phosphate levels between 0 and 0.25 mg/L unlike API test kits that give you 0, 0.25 and higher. The color chart is a bit difficult to read due to the light shades of blue. I prefer a liquid form of reagents, but this one has one powder form. Kind of a downside to the kit.
