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.

Warranty

Manufacturer Warranty: 2 years.  All warranty services are handled directly by American Marine.

Comments: I have mixed feeling on this one. When it works it is great, but the amount of effort to get it working is the trouble. I find that I constantly have to calibrate this monitor prior to use to be able to obtain an accurate reading. Furthermore, if I don't use the monitor for a couple weeks the probe must be "hydrated" otherwise you get an error message. If you don't mind taking the time to calibrate this monitor then this will work for you.

Comments: Of all the dollars I've spent on equipment...this IS the worst product I've ever bought. Like others have said, you have to calibrate every time. Brand new, mine wouldn't calibrate. Had to send it in...worked 3 times, and now won't calibrate again.

Comments: After using this for a few months, I am going to throw it away. Impossible to calibrate after a few tests. It has to be calibrated every time you use it. What a waste of $$$! I'm going back to using my Salifert Calcium test kit.

Comments: Unlike this pinpoint Salinity and PH monitors, the Calcium monitor is not designed for "continuous" use. I find it necessary to calibrate the monitor before each test which ends up taking longer than just using a standard chemical Calcium test. For Calcium testing, the accuracy of a digital readout is not really needed for the standard aquarium since calcium has a wide acceptable range, and standard chemical test kits are easy to use and read.

Comments: It is quick and simple to use.It is also accurate. However i thought it could be lift in the sump or tank for continues monitoring, but that is not recommended. Yes i would recommend it.
