Good kit poor quality control By Chad on 4/18/2018Chad would recommend this product to a friendFirst test kit came in with all the syringes broken as well as the vial holders in the lid broken. BRS sent me out a new kit right away. 2nd one came in undamaged but one of the reagent bottles was leaking and damaged the cards. Between the 2 kits I was able to make a complete undamaged kit.
Solid test kit but the magnesium test is a pain By Jono on 3/16/2018Jono would recommend this product to a friendThis is an easy test kit to use, but the magnesium test is unreliable. I rinse the test vials out with RODI water between each test, rinse the vials out with tank water before performing the test and I often get different results when I perform the magnesium test twice. I'm not sure if its how I'm shaking the vials or if I'm not shaking it for the right time, but I feel like the magnesium test results are unreliable. otherwise, it is a solid test kit.
Poor Quality Control By Aaron on 3/3/2018Aaron wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI was sold on Red Sea since I got my Reefer, but this is the second expensive kit I have bought that arrived with something leaking. Everything wet and color stained, including the instructions and color charts. To top that off, the kit included two vials of magnesium C reagant, but no calcium C reagant, so I can't test for calcium at all.
Easy to use and very accurate By wendell on 12/4/2017wendell would recommend this product to a friendResults are very accurate, easy to use all in one container. Iv used different test kits before but this one is best bang for you buck and very trustworthy test kit !
Very expensive for short shelf life By william on 11/16/2017william wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe MG and CA tests are great. Easy to read and very accurate (comparing to other tests).
The alkalinity test kit "expired" after ~6 months. I understand that these things expire, but the expiration is usually a year or so. I gues it technically still works, but the color has turned to a light orange/yellow and its impossible to tell when the titration color change occurs since it goes from the blue color to a very murky blue/yellow then slowly into orange over the next 2ml.
Easy By John on 10/14/2017John would recommend this product to a friendThis is a fast and easy way to test
Works great By Kenm on 8/27/2017Kenm would recommend this product to a friendI love the red sea test kits. They are well made and easy to use. The only reason this isn't a 5 star review is because the markings on the syringes do wear off. Now that I know that I just avoid touching the markings and it's not an issue
Nice little package By Benjamin on 8/24/2017Benjamin would recommend this product to a friendEasy to see color changes, the big three all in one kit.

Good Quality By Ryan on 7/3/2017Ryan would recommend this product to a friendThe test kits are a little tricky to get used to. The end colors are the hardest part, since it can change a little and make it so you don't know if your there. I had to test with multiple kits to get a feel of which color was the end. Also for MG it is a long process and I found that you should really shake the test 15 seconds longer than recommended in each section for more accurate results.
Fast & Easy By John on 5/18/2017John would recommend this product to a friendEasy to read results. Takes about 15 min to do all three tests.
Easy and accurate test kit! By Fernando on 3/28/2017Fernando would recommend this product to a friendI can't believe I waited this long to get this test kit. Don't waste your money on buying the cheap API test kits like I did. Those are garbage compared to these hobby grade tests. Spend the extra money on this, totally worth it! Your tank will thank you!
I just have a question in determining the amount of titrant used for the test. So if I start with 1ML and I end with 0.46ML left then I would subtract .46 from 1.0 to get 0.54 titrant used. Then I would use 0.54 as my number on the card to get my results. Is this the correct process?
That is correct :-) You compare the amount of titrant used to the chart, so your math looks good to me!
So my question is now that it is winter. Is it bad for this test kit to be exposed to below freezing temps during shipping.
These test kits tend to have a lower than normal freezing temperature and typically we have not received much negative feed back during shipments in winter. If you have any issues or questions feel free to let us know and we will be more than willing to help!
