Works well after initial tests By Jack on 12/11/2013

The test is presented very well and mostly intuitive. The only issue I had is that it wasn't obvious how to pull the solutions into the titration syringe. The gap that is always there between the end of the plunger and the water line is suppose to be there. I wasn't aware of that until recently after some searches. Just be aware of that when using but I think it's a good product so far. I haven't compared the tests w/ another brand though.

I was using the API test kit and was sick of comparing colors that all look the same. This test kit is well made and easy to ready. Instead of comparing different shades of yellow you just need to wait until the red turns to blue. Easy!!! This kit is also very well made. I feel like a professional scientist when using it. I actually enjoy testing now. It helps that I trust the results I'm getting it. If a digital reader is ever made I will buy it until then this is the best on the market hands down.
Pretty Good Test Kit By James on 12/3/2013

I'll admit it's a bit tricky at first, but after using the kit for a few times it becomes pretty simple. Color changing tests always seem to mess with your eyes, but so far this one has proven to be very accurate in all tests. I'd recommend it to anyone

Hands down the best test kit I have used. A little pricy at first but well worth the professional lab style kit.

This is a well-constructed kit with clear instructions and an easy-to-read results chart. My only complaint would be that it may take a bit longer to do the tests than for some other kits out there, but the accuracy definitely makes up for it.
Would highly recommend for anyone looking to keep corals.

My only thing about this entire kit is the syringe tip, if it doesn't seal well you can't get an accurate amount of titration solution. Giving you off results. But other then that miner thing it's awesome product. Plus the fact that they are packaging them together gives us reefer's more savings for more corals....

I went with this test after watching the side by side comparison from BRSTV. I'm happy I did and will be sticking with these tests for a long time.

I have tried many tests and this one is the best out there. The color change is unmistakable. Easy to use and accurate. I have the digital testers and still use this instead.

I've been using this kit for several months now. I've found it to be very easy to use and produce very reproducible results. Since all three measurements are based on titration, there is no matching the color problem.

I like that this comes in a nice sleek container. The Alk test is super easy to do. The Ca and Mg test take a little more time but being able to titrate so easy is nice. I like that it tells you how much each mL is to the end result so if you have super high values you can keep going with a refill of the syringe. You just have to calculate it.
I also like that the refills are not that expensive AND you get BRS points for purchasing them. It's nice to get something for purchasing your everyday products like this! Will continue to use and purchase from BRS!

I started off using API because they were cheaper and I thought that was all I needed. After a month or so I decided I wanted to check on my Magnesium levels. I went with the Red Sea test because of good reviews.
I love the way that you titrate the solution because you don't get messy like with the API. The color changes seem to be noticeable and watching the videos made by Red sea are a must just to double check the actual color you want to be seeing. The packaging of this test is also really nice. Compact and sleek 3 tests don't take up a lot of room under your tank! I will likely continue using the Red sea because you can get the reagents only and withe BRS you get nice regular bonus points for purchasing them!

After using API for cycling purposes I purchased the Red Sea Pro Foundation kit. I am currently on my second kit since I used up most of the components of the first one and will continue using these kits. The results compare pretty close with the API kits but are more accurate. For example API measures CA and Alk by drops, you can not divide a drop by more than 1 so you get a larger range, RedSea uses mL where you can calculate per mL and get a smaller range.
The only test I hate performing is the Mag. It is not difficult or inaccurate, but is time consuming since you have to add each drop and swirl for 15seconds rather than adding all 5 at once. Not terrible and I prefer accuracy over ease of use.

Easy to use and water resistant! Laminated cards and plastic case will hold up to numerous refills. Results corresponded to other kits I had, so I'm confident of the accuracy. The titrator, which allows for single hand mixing, might be awkward for small hands. Other than that, it's a great product and part of my weekly regimen.
