Not bad By Paul on 6/28/2015

Actually, these tests work well, now that my lfs gave me some pointers. Instructions could be better regarding timing of the drips and what to watch for with the color change.

The 1 ml titration syringes have different color tips, but I still labeled them to make sure I only use a certain 1 ml syringe for each test. Easy instructions to follow.

This test kit is great. It features easy to read results and the test itself is very easy to administer. The one thing is that I wish it had a larger case to keep everything in.

This is priced perfectly for beginner reefers. Three very important tests and very easy to perform. Hanna checker is the way to go long term, but if you need a cost effective way to test for CA, ALK, and MG, I can't think of any better test kit.
Very nice kit By Dan on 3/13/2015

I've been using this kit for a year or so and like it a lot. The cons that I list don't really take much away - they're mostly nit-picky. The kit is still very good.
-very accurate, end of titration is easy to see within a couple drops
-I like that refills are available
-Good value for three kits
-Nice plastic box to hold everything in - good for water environment.
-Instructions are clear and printed in color on heavy, glossy cardstock - good for water environment.
-The box is a little small and everything is pretty jammed in there
-The small syringes work well, but the labeling wears off within a year of bi-weekly use.
-The titrator handle thing is really not very useful. I'd rather swirl the solution with one hand and add drops with the other so I skip the titrator.

Los colores son muy facil de leer mucho mejor que API definitivamente la unica razón por que le doy 4 estrellas es porque uno de los frascos se quebro de la punta cuando lo enrosque en la pipa no tengo idea porque pero son muy fragiles pero es muy buen kit. muy recomendable. :)

Much more exact measurements than the API kits everyone starts with. I can't believe it took me 8 years to find this level of accuracy.

It was intimidating when i first opened it but once i red the instructions it made a lot more sense and was pretty simple. Wish it was color coded and the container was a bit bigger, but besides that a great test kit to get started.
Accurate but needs better syringes. By Schplitter on 11/3/2014
Schplitter would recommend this product to a friend
I have been using this combination of kit for six + months now and I like them. I like how accurate they are. If I ever doubt the results I can go back and do the test again (more slowly) and get the same result almost 100% of the time. Once you watch the YouTube videos and get into the habit of things this is a very easy kit to use.
Now to the negative. The syringes are junk. the 10 ml syringe is not easy to read, it's not accurate at all and the worst part is the measurements on the outside wear off quickly. They just rub off with normal use. The 1 ml syringes do the same. If you use the titration tool you will find out that the measurement lines on the syringes will disappear quickly because the syringes are pressed into it. After a month of use (testing twice per week) I had to find new syringes.
They should color code each test. Make all the labels, syringes, vials of each separate test a certain color. I labeled all of mine so I don't accidentally use a solution from another test while testing. It's very easy to mix them up.
How to improve the product:
1. Better quality syringes.
2. Color code each test (CA, ALK, MG) separately.
3. Make the box slightly larger as it's a pain to pack everything back up.

Well thought out test kit, important that these three are grouped together. Not the most simple tests I have use, but more accurate, and readable results. Once you get through the instructions on the first test, they are easy to do.

When i first opened the box i saw syringes, vials, bottles, mixers and booklets. My first thought was "Great, now I have to get a chemistry degree", but that's not the case! The instructions are very easy to read, they come in a written form and little cards that are very self explanatory. Test are accurate and refills are very affordable, the box it comes in is a durable plastic, can be kept around water without breaking, compact. Over all great low budget test kit!

This is a very easy to use test kit that is very accurate. So easy that I taught my 5 year old nephew who helps me with tank maintenance to use it. Also great price for many test.
Clear instructions, complete package By John on 7/7/2014

Good test kit containing everything need to do quality tests. Three separate vials for the three tests. I labeled each vial so that I do the same test in each vial. The titration tool makes the process easy. Would be nice if the chart and the titration tool matched scales. What you read on the titration tool is how much is left in the tool but the chart shows how much solution caused the transition. You must take the result of (1.0 - reading on tool) before looking up the number in the chart. This is not a big deal, just a minor inconvenience.

A bit of a pain to use and more so to get it back in the box. Seems reasonably accurate but that's dependent on reading results which is not always the easiest.

I have been using this brand of test kit for nearly 2 years and am completely happy with it. You get a good number of tests for the money and it has lab like equipment that makes titration very easy. Individual refills are also available at a good cost. Youtube has additional videos released by Red Sea that shows the tests step by step.
Buy a hannah checker By Brennen on 3/26/2014
Brennen would recommend this product to a friend
Its a good test kit if your upgrading from API junk. The main challenge with this kit is the color reading. It is often easy to have trouble identifying the finishing point. Especially for alkalinity, the test end color is easy to pass up if you go for red. Also the calcium if you are not quick enough it turns into purple quickly after it changes to the blue end point. For this reason I regret buying it I feel like photometers are worth every penny. I hate this kit but it works for the price, If you are building an SPS reef or a ULNS this test kit is not for you. Accuracy is important if you want amazing color.
