Good item for the price By Clmarti78 on 4/18/2015

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.

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.

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.

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.

Like many people I started off with a Hydrometer. Cycled my tank for a month keeping an eye on salinity, and watching levels.
Once the tank was fully cycled, I bought this Refractometer and couldn't believe how easy and clean taking readings was. In addition, it showed how totally unreliable the Hydrometer's readings were.
Took an extra week, to adjust my salinity before adding my cleaning crew. Wish now that I picked this up earlier in the cycle.
Huge value in this tool. As a bonus, it comes with calibration fluid to get you setup from day one. Can't speak highly enough about this purchase.

I've Found this Product From Other Suppliers For as High As 75.00 The Price Was Great & Product Works Great I Calibrated With Solution received With Unit.

Went From A 10 Gal. Tank To 55 Gal. Tank Highly Recommend This Product!!!

A Must Have! By Vu on 12/21/2014
Vu would recommend this product to a friend
Refractometers are the easiset and far superior to a hydrometer, paying extra for one of these is a must. I was really surprise that the calibration fluid bottle has an eye dropper tip. Others I used only had a screw on cap which can easily spill or accidentally screwed on too loose and evaporation would then ruin the accuracy.

The refractometer is made out of high quality materials. As soon as you take it out of the case you can see the quality of the instrument. I made the purchase because I was so sick of measuring the salinity with a traditional hydrometer. I was tried of dealing with the small air bubbles sticking to the needle and causing the reading to be off. This instrument is much easier to use and much more accurate. I definitely recommend it.

Simple as this, if you love ur tank and reef PLEASE buy one of this, don't trust your whole investment $$$ in a cheap, non precise hydrometer, last week all my zoas were closed and a weird feeling in the whole tank after the water change, guess what??? Thks to my old piece of **** hydrometer my salinity was in 1,029 ppm, off course it happens at night, thks to a good friend that came with 10 gal and we saved everything. Next morning ordered my refractometer, thks BRS, essential piece at a very reasonable price.
