This kit had different readings that my salifert which made me think it sucked at first however It made me try some other kits as well. They were all much closer to the red sea results. The more I read about salifert the more I question why I trusted them so much all these years.

This kit reads consistently but reads WAY HIGHER than Salifert using the high and low range test methodology. Salifert results are .25 while Red Sea shows between 2 & 4ppm...I believe Salifert.
Terrible kit By Mike on 11/22/2011

I have been very disappointed with this kit. The A bottle only drops between 2-4 drops before apparently getting clogged. Followed the instructions perfectly yet time after time the bottle clogged every time. Had high hopes for this as a premium alternative but very disappointed. I would not recommend.

This test kit is leaps and bounds better than any other Nitrate test kit out there. Easy to read and just overall well put together.

The kit is accurate and consistent as far as I can tell. I have been through a set of reagents and are using the refills. The colors between the .50 - .75 range do not quite appear to match the color wheel. I keep getting more purple than pink which makes it hard to guess the actual level. I test for trends instead of actual numbers and this test works well for that. Sometimes the cadmium that is present in reagent A gets lodged in the tip of the bottle and I have to shake and tap it on the table to get the required 8 drops to come out.

Ok, when i first got this and saw that it took 9 minutes for the color to develop, I got a little peeved. But when I saw how easy it was to select the color representing the nitrates ppm, I quickly dismissed how long it took. I test nitrates first, then go about testing mag, cal, phos, and alk. By the time I am done with all those, the nitrates are ready to read. if you can kill 9 minutes waiting for the test to complete, its well worth buying this product.
