Hard Test Kit

This is the worst Test kit I have ever used. It is hard to do the test and hard to read the test.

Poor packaging

I've used this test kit for about a week now and I'm pretty irritated with it. It works fine. It's a chemical test so I don't know how that could get screwed up. Unless the chemicals were bad. It's more accurate than test strips etc. The big downside is with the packaging. Basically, you get a bunch of tiny bottles, tweezers, test dishes, pipettes, a spoon and stirrer and documentation all crammed in a tiny little box. So once you unpack everything, you've either got to shove it all back in the box when you're done, or come up with your own little holder for all the components. I think it would be worth the extra money for a little tray w/ holes etc to put all this stuff in after you take it out of the box. Either that or a bigger box so it's not so much of a chore to stuff all the components back in the tiny box. It all just barely fits in the box if you very carefully plan out how to put everything away. It takes longer to get everything out of the box and put it back away than it does to conduct the tests!

Buy it

Accurate and easy to use. Reasonably priced. The fact that you get samples to verify the accuracy of the tests is great.

Decent Kit

The pH, alkalinity, nitrite, and nitrate portions of this kit are pretty good and easy to use. The ammonia portion is a disk that changes from yellow to blue and is really only useful to tell whether ammonia is present, not how much is present.

ok

This is a Ok product. It seems more accurate than the Red sea test kit, but to me is not as convenient. might try something different next time.

Marine Basic

I was hoping to run a tiration test instead of indicator and color chart. It is not as accurate as I hope because of the color chart. It took too long to do.

Great test kit!

Easy to use, easy to read results. Wish the cells were a bit deeper, but hey - it all cleans up. The combined kit makes it very reasonable and I like all of the standards for verification.

Tough to decipher...

I like the fact that the kit can still accurately determine the amount of ammonia as opposed to ammonium in the water even after using Seachem Prime. However, I found this kit to be difficult to read the results of when compared to the API test kits. Trying to use the sliding scales to figure out the test results was difficult since the test was done in little bowls instead of test tubes. Also, this test kit took a lot longer to use than the API test kit and involved a lot more elements which got frustrating after a few days. All in all, I think next time I'll just get the ammonia kit and stick to API for my other testing needs.

Great Accuracy!

Please take the time to read the instructions. It's the only basic set I know of that includes both Free Ammonia and Total Ammonia! The instructions clearly explain the difference between the two. I love the pH and Nitrite tests - Nitrate test needs just a little practice to not spill the powder (or maybe I just don't have a steady hand). WELL WORTH the price!
