  • Get it By on 11/19/2016

    I can't believe I've been mixing water for 2+ years without this. Not that my salinity was way out of whack but this is just so easy to use. Now if only they made a Nitrate tester......
  • Love it but don't trust it yet By on 9/14/2016

    I got this because I have a hard time seeing where exactly the blue line is on the standard units. So I love the digital reading but I haven't had long enough use to speak to the reliability over time.
  • Must be consistent, then there are no issues! By on 7/10/2016

    Even though this meter is digital, you must follow a consistent process to test your water. For instance, if you have a difference in temp between your calibration fluid and the test water, AND YOU DONT WAIT FOR THE METER TO ADJUST THE TEMP, you will have inaccurate readings. Also, the calibration solution is not accurate. I believe mine to be 1.024 - I use my RO water to calibrate and then test tank water and it has been very consistent. I like this because it is much easier for me to read and any variance I feel is far less with this meter than me reading a fine line refractometer.
  • Tolerance of .002 By on 6/8/2016

    If your happy mixing you water to 1.025 and finding out that it can be plus or minus 0.002 then this is the unit for you.

    If you actually care to know exactly what your water is at buy the standard refractometer and calibration solution and check your calibration often.

    Don't even think about contacting Milwaukee for service unless your unit is out of 0.002 variance. They will give you some long excuse how not every unit is make perfect and it's within specs sorry. I will be selling this piece of junk.

  • It was good at first but... By on 5/11/2016

    I had this product for almost 5 months now and for the few months it worked well. Then after that I've been getting inaccurate readings from the unit. It kept saying that my salinity in my tank is 1.024 when its really at 1.026. I tried calibrating it with steamed distilled water and the calibration solution that came with the kit but it was still giving inaccurate reading. The calibration solution is at 1.025 and it reads 1.024.
  • GREATproduct By on 4/7/2016

    Very accurate and very easy to use.
  • works great and calibration is simple By on 4/7/2016

    just go this three weeks ago so longevity not known but definitely easy to use and calibration is simple. Only negative thus far is power on/off button ok but a little quirky thought I had a bad battery and put new battery in and still would not power up so pushed a little firmer and came on, not the way a great quality switch works.
  • Nice and easy By on 3/28/2016

    This is great calibrates easily and fast accurate readings. As I get older my vision is fading and trying to read a sight Refractometer is getting hard, this has nice bright and big numbers for me.
  • Awesome addition! By on 1/2/2016

    I love this thing. It's super easy and super fast. I calibrated it the first time I used it and haven't had to recalibrate it since (2 months). I can take it anywhere and did I mention it's super easy and super fast?!?

    I do wish the case had more room to store the test solution and pipet.
  • a must have for simple reefing By on 1/1/2016

    this is by far a must have for reefers its extremely accurate and instant so can't go wrong with that
