I had never owned a refractometer or even used one for that matter, I had always relied on those cheap hydrometers. I am so glad that I purchased this product. I found out that my salinity was way lower than what I thought I had it at. I tested my friends and familys tanks and needless to say, they are all picking up some of these refractometers. Very easy to use and calibrate. Highly recommended!

I like most used the hydrometers, never again after getting this. Just a few drops and all done, and with the calibration fluid you know it's spot on.

This is great for the price. Checked my salinity with this and saw that it was way off what my hydrometer said. So glad I got this and for a great price!

Previously used a hydrometer until i had my water tested and the lfs and they used a refractometer and gave me a completely different reading. This is accurate and too important of a tool to skimp on
Keeping the salinity in check o my 215G reef By Burnie on 2/21/14

I used hydrometers for years and finally bought this refractometer. I immediately found my salinity was at 1.030 when the hydrometer had it at 1.026. Its accurate and dependable and considering its cheaper to buy than any decent coral its well worth the investment.

Always used hydrometers with no problems. Finally bit the bullet for the real deal. This is a nice piece of equipment. I am impressed and its well worth the piece of mind. Bonus they include calibration fluid!

Work great, easy to configure. My hydrometer read the same though so I feel like it's not 100% needed as long as you have good upkeep of hydrometers
EXCELLENT METER By Claude on 2/6/14

The meter is easy to use calibration is quick and easy grid is large and easy to read. Manufacturer instructions say to calibrate to 1.000 with distilled water same as my other meter so I am not sold on using the calibration fluid sent with it. Not by the manufacturer.

I purchased this product to use in my 90 gal setup. The cal fluid works as its supposed to. It Is easy to read even for me with glasses. It takes some of the guess work out of my salinity.

Im a beginner to reefing but this refractometer paired with a good tutorial video on youtube any you will have precise reading of your salinity levels. Necessary for success

I made the mistake of using a hydrometer until my corals melted from high salinity. I switched to using this afterwards and my salinity has been perfect ever since. The calibration is simple and it did take a few minor adjustments but since it settled in it is dead on when I check every week before checking my salt water.

I was a little hesitant at first seeing as it is more expensive then the hydrometer option, however I a glad I purchased this product as it is high quality, easy to use, and gives clear readings.

Buy this... Better than and of the cheap plastic hydrometers. By George on 12/30/13
George would recommend this product to a friend
Well built and for the price, unbeatable. I managed to get this on sale for under 20 here at BRS during their sale. Even at full price, this is a lot better and more accurate than using a hydrometer and the price difference isn't even that great. Save yourselves the trouble and use this.

Been using a hydrometer for the past 5 years and finally decided to purchase one of these. Very well built and included case makes for easy and safe storage. Only problem I have is the calibration fluid was not included in my package, but for the price, still a great purchase.

This Refractometer is well built and includes calibration fluid so you know you are right where you want to be. Much better than a hydrometer and easier to use. Three small drops on the lense and look thru the tube towards light.

I just started in the salt water hobby at the beginning of October and since then I had used the swing arm hydrometer figuring it had to be close enough. Well I picked up this refractometer during BRS's doorbuster sale and all I have to say is why didnt I get one of these to begin with? Super easy to calibrate and use and it gives a peace of mind that no hydromter can ever give. If you are just starting out, or have been in the hobby for years and never got one, I recommend that you do yourself the favor and pick this up and never play the swing arm guessing game again
