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.
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.
Great kit, good price By Jason on 6/27/2012

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.
Very well put together By Matt on 6/23/2012

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.
