Full Details

Refractometers are one of the best pieces of equipment an aquarist can purchase. It not only ensures accurate measurements of salinity but it is also infinitely easier to use and read.

 

Comes with the following:

 

  • Dropper
  • Carrying Case
  • Screw Driver for calibrating
  • Adjustable eyepiece
  • Salinity Calibration Fluid. Calibrates to sg 1.026 (35ppt)

 

Steps to calibrate your unit:

 

1) Using the dropper place a few drops of the solution on the glass and close the lid.

2) Looking through the unit and turn the screw until the unit reads sg 1.026 (35ppt)

3) Screw the cap back on your calibration solution for storage. It is important that the cap is on tight or water will evaporate and ruin the solution.

 

*** Do not calibrate using RO/DI water as this will not give accurate readings***

  • Highly Recommend, Must have! By AsmoTiC on 1/26/2015

    Like many people I started off with a Hydrometer. Cycled my tank for a month keeping an eye on salinity, and watching levels.

    Once the tank was fully cycled, I bought this Refractometer and couldn't believe how easy and clean taking readings was. In addition, it showed how totally unreliable the Hydrometer's readings were.

    Took an extra week, to adjust my salinity before adding my cleaning crew. Wish now that I picked this up earlier in the cycle.

    Huge value in this tool. As a bonus, it comes with calibration fluid to get you setup from day one. Can't speak highly enough about this purchase.
  • love it By Nay on 1/19/2015

    I love this tool, accurate and easy to use. You must calibrate to 1.026 for reef aquarium.
    All this information available from BRS, SOOOO HELPFUL!!!
  • Very Nice Instrument By Frank on 1/19/2015

    Solid construction (not plastic). Easy to use. Instructions are great. Don't ignore the sticker telling you to calibrate to 35!!!

  • Great product, easy to use By Michael on 1/7/2015

    Being someone who is new to the hobby, I was a bit concerned that this would be too complicated to figure out how to use. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised that this was extremely easy to use and the calibrating solution provided by BRS made setup very simple!
  • Good buy. By Robin on 1/5/2015

    Had the old swing arm hydrometer for years now. Was not giving accurate readings. Got this refractometer on sale! Easy to calibrate and use. Very happy.
  • Great Product For A Great Price By Frank on 1/3/2015

    I've Found this Product From Other Suppliers For as High As 75.00 The Price Was Great & Product Works Great I Calibrated With Solution received With Unit. Check My Salinity With Standard Hydrometer, Found A Considerable Difference With Refractor meter I Purchased. Immediately Said Goodbye To Old Hydrometer Won't Use Anything Else But This Product. Went From A 10 Gal. Tank To 55 Gal. Tank Highly Recommend This Product!!!
