API Master Water Test Kit Review

When you are looking to test the water within your aquarium, you want the best. The one which gives you accurate results along with making them easy to read. The API Master Water Test Kit brings this to the user creating a bond of trust. This could be backed up by the amount of people who have this within hands reach of their aquarium.

Over the years over keeping my tanks I've tried plenty of different makes and types. So I can speak to you from experience of having the duff ones and the ones which actually give you what you want. This test kits gives you a larger range than most including the test strips.

The API Master Test Kit is in its own league by this I mean it offers so much to the general user. You get your moneys worth with everything that come with it. Once you have purchased the item you get;

  • A set of test tubes for you to carry out the test within along with caps,
  • A handy little rack so you can stand the tubes up while your waiting for the results to show,
  • The set of solution bottles which you add to your water which you've collected in the test tubes,
  • A colour chart showing your results for each test,
  • An Instruction manual which has been wrote in a way so its easy to read and understand all the stages,
  • A Results log.

When it comes down to the testing, it is so easy and with the Instruction manual to follow the steps become simple. It is also quick, within a couple minutes you can have all your results for all your tests.

One of the bonuses which you get with this kit is the Results Log. With this you are can write down all your results giving you a history of how your waters been. Your able to see if there's any pattern which has happened with lows or highs. For example with your PH levels.

There isn't much you can really say which is bad about this test kit. Its perfect and it does everything which you want it to do and more. Even down to the casing which its all stored in. Its been made in such a way that it keeps everything safe inside.

The API Master test kit comes highly recommend from a lot of Fish keepers. Most of the aquatic shops will even use them their self within their tanks. If this doesn't say to you how brilliant and trustworthy this kit really is I don't know what would. Without the API Master test kit I don't know where I would be.

The log is one of the best parts about this, I have found keeping records is vital to really knowing what's going on with the water.

I've found the log book to be the same. It's been able to show me patterns in which some levels rise! Meaning I know when to be extra careful with the water and what to expect.
