Not too precise By James on 4/5/2016

I was expecting it to be easier to read by the reviews but I'd like a little bit more certainty. Next purchase will be a Hannah checker for sure.
Did the job... By Jessica on 11/28/2015

I've never used a digital test reader before so I can't compare the two... but I was curious what my levels were after going through a major initial diatom bloom... got my BRS Carbon/GFO reactor going and after a few days water was clear and the algae gone. I received my test kit and did the first test and it read 0.03 which helped confirm my thoughts. I may switch to the digital reader in the future but for now this is accurate enough.

Its hard to read on the low end of the scale. I would rather use a Hanna checker all day!

I 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.

Salifert 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....

I 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.

I hate taking tests but these water tests are easy to take and pass. LOL. But really its reliable and easy to read.

I 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 4/21/2012

Again, 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 2/6/2012

Strait 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 9/23/2011

Only 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.

I love this kit, never any questions on the reading and it very easy to use.
