Hanna Phosphate Checker HR (High Range). Is an electronic instrument which measures phosphate (as PO4) in water in the range 0 - 30 ppm (0-30000ppb) displaying the results as ppm on a liquid crystal display. The instrument is battery powered (1 x AAA provided) and easy to use. 1 x Reagent A bottle and 20 x Reagent B sachets are provided.
Ortho-phosphoric Acid is added to mains water by water companies in the UK so as to suppress lead from leaching into water from old lead pipes in our houses. Over time this breaks down into organo-phosphate which is the primary nutrient for both algae and bacteria. By removing phosphate and maintaining the level around zero ppm/ppb algae cannot grow and bacteria development will be inhibited.
In the UK the phosphate levels in mains water is frequently more than 1000 ppb (parts per billion or 1 part per million as PO4) which is sufficent for algae and bacteria to thrive. Your reward for removing phosphate is that less sanitizer will be consumed which saves money and is better for the health of bathers.
Accuracy +/- 1ppm - +/- 5% of meter reading @25 Deg C
