I have the Red Sea Test Kit and I found that it works quite well.
I made up test solutions at .1, .2, .5 and 1mg/l and found reasonable
agreement with the color chart. At .2 and above it seemed to read a
little high. There was a big color change between .1 and .2 which is
good if your trying to stay around .1. I found putting the test vial
in a white measuring cup helped read the color.
