Manufacturer Info

American Marine Pinpoint Aquarium Supplies
American Marine was founded in 1989 by a devoted aquaculturist who was passionate about quality and precision. Back in the late 80s, critical water quality parameters were mostly tested with colorimetric test kits. Some digital instruments were borrowed from university or laboratory sources with mixed results but always a high price tag. Expensive European aquarium equipment was always a disappointment when it finally arrived. Inexpensive "pens" gave no better results than color test kits and prematurely failed even when testing for approximate readings.

Using the most current technology and design, American Marine introduced Pinpoint Monitors, which have become the most respected line of digital instruments in the aquaculture business. American Marine was the first to introduce a 2-year warranty on each and every monitor. For every purpose, from a goldfish bowl to a salmon hatchery, Pinpoint Monitors are called into duty every day because of their rugged design, precise readings and reasonable cost. American Marine has sold Pinpoint Monitors on every continent. Each monitor is powered by a standard 9 volt battery that is available worldwide.

Comments: I bought this unit to compare my mix water temp with tank water temp when doing a water change. I was not really worried about accuracy, just repeatability. Not there. Unit worked for one day then readings were all over the place till it failed all together. Returned and they send another unit. Treat it with kid gloves or is will break. Thermistor cable is too delicate. You get what you pay for.

Comments: I bought this thermometer in January 2016. I use two other Lifegard Aquatics Big Digital thermometers in my setup. One is in the sump and one in the display tank. I also have a JBJ Artica chiller with a LCD temperature display. The Lifegard and JBJ temps are always within +/- .1 degrees of each other. The American Marine thermometer does not hold a steady temperature and gradually falls 1-2 degrees below the other ones. This will happen over about a week or two. I've tried calibrating per the instructions and changing the batteries. Do not waste your money on this thermometer.

Comments: American Marine makes a good quality product. This is no exception. It is well built with great features. Well, as many features as you can get for a thermometer anyway. The probe cord is very long so you can just about mount the display wherever you want to, the suction cup for attaching it though is horrible. When are these companies going to realize that suction cups do not stay where you want them for more than a day or two? A magnetic mount would be easily accomplished with minimal cost. Anyway back to the important stuff. It works right out of the box, mine was about 3 degrees high but this is adjustable so no big deal. BUT within a week the calibration was creeping back up again. I decided to let it go to see how far/long it would creep up. It leveled out at about 20 degrees high after another week and has stayed there for 3 weeks. I am going to calibrate again back to where it should be (using glass mercury thermometer for reference) and see how long it holds. I will update the review later with results. For now I will say it is a quality product but not reliable if it needs calibration once a week.
