Waste of money By bgp on 2/7/2014bgp wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have used the other Salifert test kits and really like them. However, this kit keeps giving false readings. I have been comparing the reading of this kit with my digital reader, and its readings are way off. Better to stick with the Hanna meter.
Good Test Kit By John on 1/9/2013John would recommend this product to a friendSalifert does a great job with test kits but I will be upgrading to a digital read out checker for phosphate. I am a big fan of salifert test kits but just hate comparing shades of blue. I'm no art major....
Great Product By Jonathon on 11/26/2012Jonathon would recommend this product to a friendI have been using this test kit for about 6 years. Never had any problems. Seems to be accurate and easy to read. I would note that I can only compare it API test kits however.
Great test By Steve on 8/14/2012Steve would recommend this product to a friendI hate taking tests but these water tests are easy to take and pass. LOL. But really its reliable and easy to read.
Great kit By Alex on 7/31/2012Alex would recommend this product to a friendI bought this kit to replace my API kit. I got tired of trying to distinguish between 6 almost identical shades of blue and this test makes it extremely easy to interpret results.
Another great Salifert product By Scott Nelson on 4/21/2012Scott Nelson would recommend this product to a friendAgain, after using another brand to test my water for phosphates, I purchased this product to make sure my Hanna Checker is working, and they match up perfectly. Again, reliable, and easy to read
easy to use By Michael on 2/6/2012Michael would recommend this product to a friendStrait forward to use test, much easier that the previous test I owned that involved emptying packets of reagent into a container. Not sure how easy if will be to read at very low levels, but in my unfortuneatly high phosphate tank, the color was easy to determine.
Overall Great Product By Greg on 9/23/2011Greg would recommend this product to a friendOnly negative is that you have to compare colors on a chart and have decent lighting in the room. I usually do the more sensitive test where you double the reagents to get a more precise lower scale reading. Quick and price per test can't be beat for an overall great value.
Great & Easy to use By Mike on 5/7/2011Mike would recommend this product to a friendI love this kit, never any questions on the reading and it very easy to use.
oldie but goodie By cocugreek on 5/1/2011cocugreek would recommend this product to a friendI know these kits are loosing favor but for me the tests are not too time consuming or difficult. The low end phosphate levels are hard to discern unless you use natural light and little shadows. I would go with the Hanna checkers for sps but for a mixed reef like mine it is acceptable.
As a side note, for those with sps I would still have this kit handy as a back up (not electronic) and to use when testing your gfo effectiveness. Run 2 tests simulataneously with the salifert and compare the color of the vials from the water of the tank and the gfo reactor h2o. Change if the gfo is showing the same phosphate level as the tank. Less wear on your pricey Hanna checker.
To the point By Guillermo on 1/8/2011Guillermo would recommend this product to a friendJust like all my other Salifert kits, the phosphate kit is straight forward. While im sure i don't have an ultra low nutrient system, i have no issues with a salifert kit telling me i don't have phosphates.
fairly easy to use and accurate By Samuel on 12/4/2010Samuel would recommend this product to a friendsimilar to other salifert tests, but i usually double up on reagents and test sample to get more discernible test results, especially if youre testing for phosphates on the lower end of the spectrum. only other thing better and more reliable would be a hanna phosphate meter but that requires a bit more money
