I recently had a misshap with a fish, he passed away due to high salinity, I was trusting my hydrometer was advice at my LFS to purchase one o f this they had them in stock but at $90 it was a bit out of my budget. Bought this one form BRS and is a great instrument the quality can be felt by just holding it, compared to the one at the LFS its smaller in size same quality but less than half the price and it cokes with calibration fluid. If you have a saltwter or reef aquarium get one period. Happy reefing

Calibrates in seconds and easy to read.

With all the time consuming testers out there, It's really nice to have a tester that is fast. the time it takes for you to put water on it, you have your reading. If you're just starting in this hobby, skip the tester you put in the tank, to this one. Just more consistence readings

Used this about 10 times so far and it has been dead on each time. Calibration is a breeze and it is very easy to read.

After many annoying failed attempts to get good readings using other devices, I decided to spend a little extra and get this tool. Have never regretted it for a second! Gives a precise reading every time and you no longer have to worry about correct levels or annoying bubbles that often plague hydrometers. Buy this product!!

I've had the product about a week now for my 180g reef. It is simple, fast and accurate. Much better than the needle float style I was using.
exactly as advertised By Tyler on 3/10/2014

This us exactly what it says it is. No gimmicks appears to be made very well. It was actually calibrated properly right out of the box. I have no clue how reefers out there can actually use the old swing arm method.
Awesome product By Rob on 3/2/2014

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 2/20/2014
Burnie would recommend this product to a friend
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 2/6/2014
Claude would recommend this product to a friend
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

Once calibrated this refractometer gives a perfect measure. Greatly improved the variability in my salintity.

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.
