Bye Bye Hydrometer By Brandon on 2/2/2012

If you want to be certain of your salinity, get a refractometer. Hydrometers you buy from the store are not as nearly as accurate. Fish only tanks you can squeak by with a hydrometer but if you have precious coral I suggest a refractometer. This is perfect for my setup at home when I am making fresh salt water with my rodi unit.

This refactometer is very easy to use and feels like it was built really well. This kit that BRS offers is awesome; you get everything you need to test your salinity under 40 bucks! I've looked elsewhere for something similar and everything I found was more expensive and not worth the price. Cost is a major factor for me and this was priced just right. Thanks BRS!

DO NOT relie on a swing arm. Mine was shoing 1.026 forever. I ordered this on a Monday evening and it was here Wednesday afternoon. I tested my main and frag tanks and WOW, both read 1.021. Swing arm still shows 1.026 ish.
Thanks BRS again for a great order and shipment

Better than hydrometer and more accurate. Rapid use, easy to clean, and adjust.

Very high quality construction, and extremely easy to use! plus free calibration solution!!! i love that it only requires two drops of tank water unlike a hydrometer which requires a few ounces of water!

Easy to use, didn't need to do much to calibrate right out of the box. Love the case and cloth it comes with as well. Great product!

After using this I will never go back to a hydrometer. It's super accurate, easy to calibrate and is fast and easy.

I purchased this as I am just new into saltwater. My friend always used a hydrometer and I decided I wanted to try this refractometer out. I was thinking that this would just be some piece of plastic that would get the job done. Boy was I wrong this thing is heavy made from metal and looks like it will last a life time. Awesome product.
great product By Derek on 1/8/2012

When I first opened the box I thought this was a cheap product but after using it and comparing with others it is accurate and good quality. Great price especially since it comes with the calibration fluid, pipette, and cleaning cloth. I am happy I bought it.

As a beginner, I was uncertain and insecure about setting up my system. Buying this was one of the best decisions I made. Accurate salinity measurements are essential and the refractometer made obtaining them easy. Just be sure to calibrate with the enclosed solution, not with RO/DI water.
