I really like the change in color! Very easy to use By Shawn on 10/9/2012

I've used just about every test kit on the market including some of the digital test kits. The saying "You get what you pay for" really applies to these kits. While you'll pay a bit of a premium price you'll find that the accuracy of these kits and method of dropping liquid is far easier than most other kits. You'll have to sacrifice a bit of time (about 1 minute per test) over other kits but if you own a reef tank the wait is well worth it.
Important note: The syringes used in this kit come in three pieces. The plastic tip, housing and plunger. Make sure the plastic tip is firmly (not too tight or you'll break it) pressed on the housing or you'll drop liquid everywhere but in the vial. Its actually pretty simple but I learned the hard way by trying to be too careful.
Quality and Accuracy, ditch the API By DormReefer on 10/5/2012

After using API for years I was convinced that they were good enough for hobbyists. That is until I got into serious reef keeping and my corals weren't looking their best. I purchased this kit to test my Calc/Alk/Mag and found that my levels were no where near what API had told me. I drove to my LFS and had them confirm with their kits (Salifert and Hanna Digital) and I was sold on why these a necessity. They give accurate tests time after time and are very easy and effective. RedSea also has fantastic customer support!
I found the colors to be a bit confusing By Keith on 9/28/2012

I had trouble with the color matching on this kit. The colors on the card is not the color that the water ever turns.Once you get this figured out it is ok.

The quality and accuracy of this test kit was better than anticipated for the price point. I am very happy that the kit will last through refill packs and not just need to be replaced. Thanks Red Sea!!

I purchased the Red Sea Reef Foundation Pro Multi Test Kit to replace my Salifert test kits.
Overall pleased with these new test kits. The Alkalinity test does take some getting used to. (Thanks for the help Lue.)
And only needing to purchase refills makes this line of kits more economical.

This testing kit from Red Sea is the best test kit I have used on my reef tanks yet. I have used Salifert test kits along with various other kits, but I recently switched to the Red Sea pro kit and I wont be switching back anytime soon! If you're not familiar with how to titrate chemicals, it can be tough, but very easy to learn! It's also very accurate and I highly suggest it!

First test kit for me and provides good results. Fairly easy to follow and use. Haven't had the leaking issues that some people have talked about.

this test kit is well put together and easy to read and follow. It is worth the cost and they have replacements to add later. Comes in a nice container and instructions on plastic cards so your can read them even if they get wet.
Great price for a complete kit By Paul on 8/31/2012

This kit is very well put together and the instructions are easy to follow. It's a relatively quick process... just pay attention to detail and you'll get exact results. Better than a monitor that may loose it's calibration.
One of the tips on the syringes was cracked and BRS replaced it pronto!!

Before I go into this review I would like to mention that I've never used a salifert or a hannah tester so I can't make any comparisons between them.
Well I just picked this test kit up, and I can say its pretty accurate. There's only a few problems with it, for example, the test kit/s requires you to subtract the amount of reagent left over in the syringe from the original amount in the syringe(1.0 ml.) The other and only real problem, because the other one is a nuisance, is with the alk kit. The endpoint is not supposed to be orange like what the card says it will be; the endpoint is actually purple with a tint of orange not purely orange.
The good parts are that this is fast 2-3 minutes for the longest which is mg. This kit is as accurate as I can believe, which I can't prove without a doubt mainly because I have only used API test kits. This kit is also more reliable than the ones I have used before.
Also this is neither a pro or con, but I think they use some strong acids or bases in their test kits because it made my hands feel soapy when some of the Ca fluid landed landed on my hand, so keep some baking soda nearby to neutralize the chemicals if you get any on your hands.
