I had used this product in the past and I loved it. Unfortunately, Red Sea had changed the color of the titration solution. The coloration turns from a light blue to a orange/yellow mix. It's a very mild transition and I find it difficult to judge if there was a change or not. The diagram of the instructions displays red as the color of titration. Red Sea... Why did you change a good test kit?

First of all i purchased the Red Sea kit with the Ca, Alk, and Mg tests. Everything was great except for the Alk test.The color change when doing the titration on this product is not very discernible. Possibly i received a dud, however, i have read about a lot of people experiencing the same thing on the forums as well. When doing the titration you add the red reagent your vial of 10ml water. Initially it turns blue and as you progress the color is supposed to turn to red. Well with my test the color slowly fades from blue to a peachy yellow color. During this there is no point where you completely know when the color has changed. I have experience with multiple college chemistry classes, this isn't my first encounter with a titration. Hope this helps. I have since purchased a Hannah checker for my Alk test and it works wonderfully.

Have been using the red sea line of products for five years. their test kits are just one of their outstanding products. they give good results and there are vids to help you use them correctly. I am a firm believer in red sea.

The shipping was fast and test kit was fairly easy to use. I was a little confused on determining the results at first but was able to figure it out. Overall a good product.

I've used Salifert kits for over a decade, but decided to try something different. This is a very good kit and the plus for me is the color change and chart provides more of a contrast.
My problem with many of the Salifert (and other makers) is the contrast of colors is so slight I have a difficult time reading them. I am color blind, so I need more contrast than other users.
I ran this against the Salifert results twice so far and both have produced the same readings. I would recommend both test kits, but if you are color blind I would spend the extra on this kit.

I have been using this test for a while and find it simple to use. The results are relatively clear and easy to read. When I compared the results to a Salifert test they were exactly the same.

I hate testing my water almost as much as I hate testing kits. They are never easy to use or read. This kit is actually kind of fun to use, and it's super easy to read. There really isn't an "iffy" area of the test. The water is either the end point color or it isn't. There is no real guessing involved, and it's not a messy kit.

So I have purchased these test kits before and the strangest thing the color is yellow Not orange. Going to have to call tomorrow and see if they can refund me and send me a new one!! But all in all a great test kit first time ever receiving a faulty product! Maybe just my luck??

Same titration method as the popular Salifert Test kits. I believe it is a easier to use than the Salifert Kit. Fast results!
