Way better than a swing arm hydrometer By Thomas on 4/26/2015
Thomas would recommend this product to a friend
I've been using a swing arm style hydrometer for the longest time now and was always concerned about salt build-up around the arm and it messing up my readings. I finally decided it was time to upgrade and man do I love the refractometer. The included calibration fluid is super easy to use. The only qualm I have with it is, it can be difficult to get a precise measurement such as 1.0255 because the measurement lines are pretty close together. Looking through it a very bright light improves its readability though.

We had been using the hydrometer for the last couple years and it seemed to be doing well. We got this due to all the things we have read about the accuracy being better with a refractometer. Unit was easy to calibrate and works as it should. I do have a little bit of a hard time reading it but my wife has a better time with it so it could be my eye sight. If I knew another brand would be easie to read I would definitely spend the extra to have it. But over all for the price great buy for a step up from the other reader we had.
Great Refractometer. By onefang on 4/15/2015

This is well built, holds calibration ( BRS is cool enough to throw in some calibration fluid). I purchased a more expensive unit and it wouldn't hold calibration.. this one is rock solid. Buy it!

Bought this because I have 2 Hydrometers that don't agree and needed a measuring device I can trust. This is easy to use and clean.

Good value, nice that they include calibrating solution and a nice case, straight forward instructions. Really every marine tank should utilize one of these and at this price its almost half what my lfs sells them for.

Should have purchased long ago By madweazl on 3/16/2015

Simple to use, easy to read, and fairly inexpensive. I should have purchased one of these years ago. I have been using a Coralife Deep Six for years and tested it against this refractometer and got the same results. They both had the same results.

The directions included in the protective case had so many typos I was concerned about the instrument. So far so good and Ive been happy with the performance, my hydrometer was way off!

This Refractometer makes reading the salinity as easy as 1,2,3....I never have to worry about bubbles on a needle!!!!! The refractometer is also very easy to calibrate.

Can't beat the value at this price point. BRS even has the courtesy of sending calibration fluid with it (which I forgot to order). Thank you BRS!

I have tried the cheap alternatives with varied results. Make the investment and you won't be sorry or guess about your salinity levels. Accurate and easy to use tool. Be sure to calibrate with the solution provided and routinely.

Don't bother with a hydrometer, this is way more accurate and a lot easier to use. Only complaint is that you need to calibrate before every use. That really only takes a few extra seconds though.

This is very easy to use and has pinpoint accuracy. Once again, the service from BRS is unmatched by any other place. I don't even look at other places for any products. If BRS has what I need I order through them.
