Ever wonder how exactly the Hanna Alkalinity Checker works? The folks at Hanna have released a simple video tutorial putting the handy little product through a test. The Checker line is an affordable way to get a digital, professional reading for the hobbyist without breaking the bank.
Even low-end, professional-grade photometers cost several hundred dollars and having an affordable and accurate digital product for testing your parameters is a huge step in the hobby. The best titration and traditional test kits currently on the market are subjective to the tester’s perception of color. Throw in outside factors such as lighting, viewing angle of the test, forgetting your drop count and all the other pains we experience will cause plenty of head scratching just trying to deduct a precise measurement. The Hanna Checker line is a breath of fresh air taking all the guesswork out of the equation.
The Hanna Alkalinity Checker retails for $49.50 for this unit and 25 packets of reagent will run you $9.
