    They do make one that is in ppb instead of ppm. Personally I think I will buy the ppb in the future.

    That's what I was looking at online tonight. The Hanna meter. What is the ppb?

    Also why if they are no good, does API make a po4 liquid test. I tested the water running outta the tap tonight and the reading was .25 while my tank water read between .25 and 0.0ppm. Isn't the levels we're looking for 0.5?
