Pretty good

Comments Does it work, yes and no. The color chart is from 7.4 to 8.6 but I don't like the .3 differences. For example I have to guess from 8.0 to 8.3 ph. Instead of .3 differences it should have a range of .1 for more accurate results.


Liked about it It's the only Ph test kit my LFS had so I guess I'll make due. The instructions are easy and was easy to do a PH test.



Didn't like The quality of materials is CHEAP! As stated above the test could be more accurate in the color charts

as good as pH test kit gets

Comments As with all test kits for pH, accuracy is questionable. Probably won't find a better test kit for those purposes, but better to use a pH controller/monitor with a recently calibrated probe. I've used this kit a number of times, but it's been a few years and now I rely on a pair of pH probes to give me an accurate idea of what my tank pH is.


Liked about it simple to use, relatively inexpensive, and an easy way to get a ballpark pH range. I wouldnt trust it for making any definitive decisions, though (such as deciding to dose a pH boost for a low result).


Didn't like As mentioned, the accuracy is questionable. I also think the range is a bit disappointing; usually a probe is going to give you a result with 2 significant digits, this one is only going to give you 1 significant digit if even that many.

Excellent Test Kit

General Essential in systems running a calcium reactor to detect pH swings due to CO2 injection as well as problems with the buffering system in general.


Liked about it Easy to use and setup. Reliable results.

Another great Salifert test

General This is by far Salifert's easiest and cheapest test.
Very simple to read and perform. just add tank water and solution and read results it cannot get easier than that.

I wish all Saliferts were this easy!

A must have for all reefers.

Easy to Read
Cheaper than most other Salifert tests
