    Default Phosphate Meter

    Anyone near by have a Hanna Phosphate Meter I could borrow, or stop by and have my water tested?
    Most every online vendor is out of stock currently with no clear idea when more will be back in stock.
    I need to have my water checked as I have never truly gotten a baseline on where I stand with this element.

    Unfortunately, not much of a swing as a trek! But thanks for the offer. Too bad I didn't remember my water at MMC. I nagged the shizz out of you to bring the meter, then I forgot!

    Mark, I appreciate you allowing me to borrow the meter. I know have a base line idea of where each tank stands!

    With that said, Im more confused than ever. The tank with the "algae problem" had less of a reading that the other??? Not what I expected at all.

    Well you can bring the family over for a bbq and swim...get your wife convinced to get that pool project going and get your phosphate checked at the same time.

    Rob, Infact thats how it should be. The algae is consuming your phosphate to grow and hence you dont see much of them in your water column.

    Your right Manoj, I was expecting to see differently in the test having not thought the whole thing through completely.
