Key part of my testing regime By wholland on 11/2/2012

This is an excellent and easy to use kit. There are some Red Sea products that are so so, but these testing kits take things to a whole new level. I really like the accuracy of the titration system, and it provides for a LOT of tests. Really important when setting up your two part or calc reactor.

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.

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!!

Highly accurate and easy By Lance on 8/10/2012

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.
I love this test kit By jonathan on 8/9/2012

Very easy to use compared to some of the crazy kits out there. The best part about this kit is that it allows you to share the water while you are mixing the reagent because it have a piece that attaches to the top of the bottle and it squirt the reagent.

Red Sea does it right and the quality is quite easily seen. Don't settle for less. Red Sea is pure quality and BRS offers wonderful customer service.
Great kit but very tedious By Benjamin on 7/12/2012

This kit is great, but be prepared to take your time when you are doing these tests. The method used (titration) should be very accurate if you perform the tests as stated in the manual.

Easy to use test kit. Everything seems much higher quality than my previous API and Salifert kits. The multi test package really makes for a good value.

Given the importance of these parameters you'll want a reliable test kit that ensures accurate results. That's what I wanted and exactly what this kit offers. The test for each mineral is straight forward and can be done quickly. The equipment included provides for pretty specific readings...not some overly vague result "range". The ability to order reagents separately after they've been depleted is a nice option and welcome money saver.

Just did my first test last night and was very impressed. I have been using salifert which is very good but not nearly as good as red sea. I love the fact you can buy the refill kits for these. It comes in a nice case with everything in its seperate place. Very well constructed product.

This Test kit works great and comes with easy to follow instuctions along with a lot of helpful tips and hints inside the user manual. Very helpful for anyone new to chemistry. I love the titrator that comes with the kit makes testing easy. Testing card instructions and case are all water proof and provides an easy to read color chart for test results.

Great price LFS i have found sells theses for around 80-90 dollars for the exact same thing you get here. So if you need a tester don't overspend in your local store get it here so you can spend more on your tank instead of the other stores.
