Best Alk test kit By Morgan on 2/6/2015

I've used API, Red Sea, and now the Salifert. I like the Salifert the best, with the Red Sea test a close second. Syringes are very easy to use, results are very consistent.

I got tired of dealing with the API conundrum of "the tube color really isn't any shade on the chart". I finally made the switch to Salifert and I'm not looking back. The Alk test is actually pretty easy to use once you get the hang of the syringe. I really appreciate the accuracy that Salifert delivers.

kH is the easiest of the tests, color change is obvious. Can be a bit slow if you are trying to be very accurate.
for testing your levels this is the brand to go with By Chris on 3/21/2013

i have tried other kits on the market , and this is closest to a hanna checker with out the extra cost for a digital test. took a couple times to make sure your read the instructions close... on the money test.

Great testkits. I have tried many other brands of testkits, but I always come back to Salifert. They are easy to use and accurate. With the KH testkit you can use the low resolution and usually get more than one hundred tests.

I have been using this test kit for about 6 years. Never had any problems. Seems to be accurate and easy to read. I would note that I can only compare it API test kits however.

I love this kit. You can pinpoint your exact reading. No more guess work. The only problem is the ink does wear off the syringes fairly fast and makes it harder to read.
Accurate and noticeable color change. By jlemoine2 on 10/24/2012
jlemoine2 would recommend this product to a friend
I've always enjoyed the accuracy and granularity of measurement that the Salifert test kits provide. Although, I do generally despise the watching for a color change while dripping-and-swirling, it is not so bad with the Alk kit.
With some test kits, namely the Salifert Calcium kit, the color change seems to be a little more gradual, making it at times difficult to spot when the color changed. The Alk kit changes from blue to red in a much more noticeable fashion... so I never dread using this particular kit.
With the Salifert kits, you trade speed for the accuracy. So doing one of these tests (Alk and Calcium) takes a bit longer than doing one on a Hanna checker. However, the Hanna Alk checker reads high, so I use this Salifert kit as a sanity test every so often to "calibrate" my Hanna meter.

For some reason I just dont trust the Hanna checkers yet, i dont stray away from salifert. Sometimes the process is a pain but you just very accurate results, and that really all that matter.

As we all know, the easier a test kit is to use - the more apt we are to use it.
That being said, this kit makes KH testing a breeze. It literally takes longer for me to clean the syringes and test vial (ALWAYS with RO/DI water!) than it does to actually do the test!

My old salifert kit expired so I purchased another set. These sets last years and I test about 2-3 times a month. Since my last purchase time the test has changed and is easier. In about 5 minutes this test is ready to go. Much easier than other brand magnesium test kits as well.

The dyes have been made bolder making the kit far easier to read. Only thing I don't like is the cardboard box it comes in gets ruined pretty easy by nature of working around water and dye dropper is a little on messy side as it dispenses easy. Overall highly recommend.

Only Salifert for me By Richard on 7/30/2011
Richard wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Have tried other brands and keep coming back to Salifert. Reliable kits, easy to use. My only gripe is that the kit states it has a low resolution mode that uses less reagent for more tests per kit. I have tried this mode numerous times and found it to be unaccurate and unusable. Not sure why. But in normal resolution mode it is highly accurate, reliable and economical. Recommend.

A very solid kH/ALK test kit. Easy to use and I find it to be very consistent and reliable. Just make sure you put the cap on tightly IMMEDIATELY after you draw up the reagent. Evaporation will cause future test to read off.

This was one of the easiest tests to use on the market and accurate too. I have several other alk test kits and they are totally confusing and not accurate. Wish I had bought this one first, I could have saved alot of money on the othe kits which I could have used to buy more equipment.

Alk always tests high By Jim on 3/7/2011
Jim wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I like Salifert products and I used to use their kits exclusively, until I realized the dkh almost always tests high. Test against ELOS or Hanna, the Salifert is always showing 1dkh higher than other test kits. Stability is key so you can still use this kit with great success, but know that your dkh is a bit lower than what its actually reading. At least that was from my experience

This has to be the easiest and most simple test kit out there today. It takes me more time to check for simpler things in my tank like Nitrates and Ammonia then it does for me to check the Alk. No confusing colors, just a simple blue to pink change, which is easy to see.

This kit provides a very large number of tests for the money, and the accuracy seems to be spot-on. It's very fast and easy to use. The kit provides a free calibration solution to validate your technique and the kit's validity, which is a plus. The endpoint is very easy to determine. My one complaint is that the ink tends to wear off of the measuring syringe long before one runs out of reagent.
