    *** 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.

  • Must have for any Reef or fish only hobby By Kevin on 2/16/2015

    I have tried the cheap alternatives with varied results. Make the investment and you won't be sorry or guess about your salinity levels. Accurate and easy to use tool. Be sure to calibrate with the solution provided and routinely.
  • Great easy tester By Christopher on 2/11/2015

    Great and easy way to make sure your salinity is right where you want it, reasonably priced and simple to use.
  • much better than my hydrometer By kyle on 2/11/2015

    this is much more accurate than my hydrometer and it is easy to use. now mixing up and checking the salinity of my water is a breeze
  • Very Easy to Read By Jeff on 2/4/2015

    Easy to you. Cant beat the price
  • Top notch By Copper on 2/4/2015

    Everything BRS sells is the best, no junk here! Fast shipping and top notch service!
  • only way to go By Nate on 1/31/2015

    Don't bother with a hydrometer, this is way more accurate and a lot easier to use. Only complaint is that you need to calibrate before every use. That really only takes a few extra seconds though.
  • Works Great By Shawn on 1/30/2015

    This is very easy to use and has pinpoint accuracy. Once again, the service from BRS is unmatched by any other place. I don't even look at other places for any products. If BRS has what I need I order through them.
  • great product By Ol Crusty on 1/28/2015

    Get it you won't be sorry
  • 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!!!
  • Very nice By Andrew on 1/16/2015

    accurate and well built
