    *** Do not calibrate using RO/DI water as this will not give accurate readings***
    All my water is from RO/DI water, how do you calibrate this?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Larry,
    You calibrate it using the included 35ppt/1.026 calibration solution. The solution is a known standard, so you put that on the slide and then adjust the refractometer to 35ppt/1.026.

    Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

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.

  • satisfied By JOEPIT on 4/23/2015

    just happy with the product .
  • Great product By Happy reefer on 4/21/2015

    It's easy to read and use; I liked that it came with calibration fluid.
  • Good item for the price By Clmarti78 on 4/18/2015

    We had been using the hydrometer for the last couple years and it seemed to be doing well. We got this due to all the things we have read about the accuracy being better with a refractometer. Unit was easy to calibrate and works as it should. I do have a little bit of a hard time reading it but my wife has a better time with it so it could be my eye sight. If I knew another brand would be easie to read I would definitely spend the extra to have it. But over all for the price great buy for a step up from the other reader we had.
  • Great Refractometer. By onefang on 4/15/2015

    This is well built, holds calibration ( BRS is cool enough to throw in some calibration fluid). I purchased a more expensive unit and it wouldn't hold calibration.. this one is rock solid. Buy it!
  • Works Well By Tim L on 3/31/2015

    Bought this because I have 2 Hydrometers that don't agree and needed a measuring device I can trust. This is easy to use and clean.
  • Accurate Salt Readings By Gabriel on 3/24/2015

    Good value, nice that they include calibrating solution and a nice case, straight forward instructions. Really every marine tank should utilize one of these and at this price its almost half what my lfs sells them for.
  • Accurate and Affordable By William on 3/24/2015

    I can't add much to what's been said. I'm very happy with this purchase and I am sure you will be too.
  • Should have purchased long ago By madweazl on 3/16/2015

    Simple to use, easy to read, and fairly inexpensive. I should have purchased one of these years ago. I have been using a Coralife Deep Six for years and tested it against this refractometer and got the same results. They both had the same results.
  • REFRACTOMETER By James on 3/10/2015

    This is the first time I order anything from BRS I was very impressed..fast shipping and a very nice Refractometer for the price
  • Pleased By Captain on 3/9/2015

    The directions included in the protective case had so many typos I was concerned about the instrument. So far so good and Ive been happy with the performance, my hydrometer was way off!
  • Great product By Rumzy on 3/8/2015

    This Refractometer makes reading the salinity as easy as 1,2,3....I never have to worry about bubbles on a needle!!!!! The refractometer is also very easy to calibrate.
  • Good product By Laura on 3/3/2015

    I am very happy with this refractometer easy to use and seem very accurate.
