Monitor the health of your saltwater reef aquarium with the Reef Professional Kit for Calcium, Alkalinity, & Phosphates.

Water quality is the most important aspect of a healthy reef aquarium. Remove subjective results and guesswork by confidently testing with Hanna Instruments. Bridge the gap between simple chemical test kits and expensive instrumentation with this convenient, professional kit.
  • Digital equipment for accurate results.
  • Complete kit includes everything you need, so you can start testing today.
  • Specifically chosen for use in saltwater reef aquariums.
The Reef Professional Kit includes:

Hanna Marine Alkalinity (dKH) Checker® HC - HI772
The HI772 Checker® HC (Handheld Colorimeter) provides a simple, accurate, and cost-effective way to measure alkalinity in degrees of carbonate hardness, commonly abbreviated as dKH. Critical to marine environments, alkalinity not only provides the carbonate ion concentration required for skeletal formation and growth of many coral, but also acts as a pH buffer against large changes in acidity.

Hanna Marine Calcium Checker® HC - HI758U
The HI758U Checker® HC (Handheld Colorimeter) provides a straightforward way to measure calcium. Required for the development of calcium carbonate skeletons of coral reefs, calcium is a crucial component of marine waters. Accurately testing calcium levels is critical for everyone from coral reef hobbyists to aquaculture farms and research facilities. Updated to include the HI731339p mechanical pipette for better accuracy.

Marine Phosphate Ultra Low Range Colorimeter - HI774
The HI774 Ultra Low Range Phosphate Checker® HC (Handheld Colorimeter) is a cost-effective way to measure phosphate in marine systems, including reef tanks. Testing for phosphates is standard practice for saltwater aquariums and provides valuable insight into your reef tank's water chemistry to help ensure long-term coral health. Phosphates are one of the many forms of phosphorus compounds found in marine waters. Excessive phosphate levels can prevent calcification, skeletal formation, and growth of many coral species, particularly those referred to as SPS or small-polyp stony. In addition, high phosphate levels can cause nuisance algae growth in your reef tank. This can become problematic because algae often outcompetes sessile organisms for light, nutrients, and space, jeopardizing long term coral health in your reef.

Marine Salinity Tester - HI98319
Designed to bring simplicity to salinity testing during the any process, the HI98319 Marine Salinity Tester measures conductivity (EC) to determine the salinity of natural and artificial seawater. Within seconds, the salinity and temperature are digitally displayed on the LCD.

Phosphate Ultra Low Range Reagents (25 Tests) - HI774-25
The HI774-25 are the reagents for the HI774 Phosphate Ultra Low Range Checker® HC. These high-quality reagents are manufactured in our state-of-the-art facility and are clearly marked with the lot number and expiration date on each packet for traceability.

35 ppt Salinity Calibration Solution Sachets (25 x 20 mL) - HI70024P
HI70024P is a premium quality 35.00 ppt salinity calibration solution that is NIST traceable and contained in portable single-use sachets. Each sachet has the lot number and expiration date stamped on it and is made of light block foil ensuring freshness each time one is opened. Hanna's line of calibration solutions have been specially formulated to have an expiration of 5 years from the date of manufacture for an unopened sachet.

Deionized water (230 mL) - HI70436M
Deionized water for your water quality testing needs. Air-tight seal to ensure the quality of the solution and marked with lot number and expiration date.

Our HALO® Wireless Field pH Meter has a durable PEI body and spherical sensing bulb. All readings are transmitted directly to your Apple or Android device or the edge®blu.
  • Take laboratory grade pH and temperature measurements using your smart phone or tablet.
  • Easily connect to the Hanna Lab App at the press of a button via Bluetooth wireless technology.
  • Group your data by time or notation. Email it for storage or share it with friends or colleagues.
  • Great for aquariums, education, environmental, and more!

The HALO® Wireless Field pH Meter incorporates Bluetooth® Smart technology with an application-specific design. There are several features that make it ideal for taking pH measurements in the field.

PEI Body
PEI is suitable for a wide range of applications and excels in field measurements due to its durability. The shielding around the spherical glass tip minimizes breakage due to accidental bumping or dropping of the electrode. PEI is a high-quality plastic that is chemically resistant to many aggressive chemicals.

Built-In Temperature Sensor
HI12302 features a built-in temperature sensor for temperature measurement and compensation.

Spheric Glass Tip
The spheric bulb is for general purpose use within laboratory environments and applications that measure aqueous solutions due to its large surface area.

Real-Time Data
Display of pH and temperature updated every second. Readings are automatically saved to a history file every hour, limited only by the available memory on the device.

Fluid, Dynamic Graphing
Measurements can be displayed alone on the display, with tabulated data, or as a graph. The graph can be panned and zoomed with pinch-to-zoom technology for enhanced viewing.

GLP (Good Laboratory Practice)
Displays date and time of current calibration, offset, and average slope, along with calibrated buffers, mV values, temperature and slopes between each buffer.

Calibration Reminder & Measurement Alarms
The Hanna Lab App alerts you when HALO needs calibration or if a measurement threshold is exceeded.

Log & Share Data
Saved log files may be annotated with measurement-specific information. Data is easily shared via email in CSV or PDF format.
