Rated 5 out of 5 by Daktari High Quality Product for Geeks Only
I like this product and am happy with my purchase. It is a high quality product. The packaging is impressive and the instructions are well written. The results appear to be accurate if one takes the time to read and follow the directions exactly. I am retired and have lots of time. I aced college chemistry and enjoy tinkering with equipment and running various tests. If you feel water testing is a chore or don't like to read
and follow instructions then I wouldn't recommend this kit but would steer you towards the API kit which is much simpler. It is easy to get the wrong reading if not careful. If you are new to reefing and don't already have a magnesium and alkalinity test kit, I would recommend the Red Sea Foundation Kit which includes Calcium, Magnesium and Alkalinity tests in one package and will save you a bit of money over buying each one separately. Red Sea also sells refill kits so you only have to buy the chemicals and not the whole expensive kit. If you are willing to spend a little extra time to read and maybe fail the first time then you will appreciate this test kit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SCohen much much harder to use than it should be
