    I would like to know how to contact Salifert.

    I have two Salifert test kits CA /MG with 2015 / 2016 expiration dates on the boxes. When I compare the club Reference 520 / 1300, my readings are +100 / 620 on the Ca; and -100 / 1200 on the MG.

    When I test my water in the barrel, I get 520 & 1290 readings but my salt box says CA ranges between 390-410 and MG 1110-1250.

    How can I tell if my reference is out of date or incorrect, and how can I get Salifert to send me new test kits?

    I don't think there is a way after checking Reef Central and some of the other boards. I guess I'll stop using Salifert.

    Any suggestions for new Ca and Mg test kits would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. Do you believe you are getting accurate reading with these two kits?

    Yes I do , I've been using elos for quite some time. Api is decent. All corals are alive and doing well

    Great.

    Thank you.

    Do you have any idea how long a Reference Standard Ca/Mg 520 / 1200 should last for do they go off too?

    Thank BAYMAC. I saw on RC that contact info in no longer current. Habib has left the house. 8) Good Find though :)

    I will stick with the Salifert product. It's pretty easy to use and read.

    My reference is over 2 years old. I'll try to find / buy fresher CA/MG reference solution.

    I liked it when I could get the NSW other references at the club meetings.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and do the research. Much appreciated.

    Since I've been storing the reference well, I think age could be the factor. The reference was from a Seachem Calcium test kit that's probably 2 years old. It came in a white bottle with a red top.

    Anyway, I ordered new Salifert kits, and will see if that takes care of it. Even though the Salifert expirations weren't for 1 and two years out, I've had em over a year.

    Thank you for finding my post and for the feedback too. Much appreciated.
