They are accurate, just don’t have high resolution. With API and Reefbot I’m sure I have 8dkh, just that it’s plus or minus a larger range than I would with salifert or Red Sea.PERFECT!!!
People say API tests are not that good. (except for Calcium)
with API tests, it is HARD to decipher the color and getting the amount of water and reagents right is not extremely accurate.
When you take human error out the equation and you take the human eye out the equation, does that make API tests equal to the others?
I guess my question is...
A robot that is accurate in dosing correct amounts and stirring reagents to specific time along with a "eye" that can correctly identify color, does that make API tests accurate?
On API yes, but we are adding soon another brand with 1 ppm resolutionWhat's the resolution of the Nitrate measurement? I looked at the app and it appears that the resolution is in the increments of the API test - 0, 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 ppm. I kind of need more resolution than that. Anyone know?
We can’t give an exact day as we are still testing the performance over time. But It will be few days.Excellent! Do you have a time frame for the 1 ppm resolution option? And if I buy the Reefbot now do I get the upgrades necessary to perform the 1 ppm test?
RedSea alkalinity is one reagent.I was trying to be able to test for
Most tests require 2 reagents. Some require 3.
The API Alk test only requires 1 reagent.
Right now, I can test 4 things.
Alk with API...1 reagent
Calcium API...2 reagents
Mag Red Sea..3 reagents
Nitrate API....2 reagents
At the moment, it seems API is the dominate test and the only one that doer nitrate.
I would like to be able to test for more.
Are there any other testing reagents that only require 1 reagent so we can test for multiple things without having to change out vials?
Yes dear.Is the Red Sea Alk test kit more accurate or have a better resolution than the API test?
Yes you can schedule tests on demand. Every Tuesday at 3:00pm... you can check the app on the App Store or Google Play. Or the web dashboard on dashboard.reefkinetics.comCan you schedule when you want the ReefBot to perform whatever tests you want, whenever you like?
Can you schedule to test Alk every Tuesday. Test calcium every other day. Test Mag once a month. Test nitrate every other week. All automatically?
I know you can test on demand.
Do you have a list of how long each test we can use with Reefbot will last? In addition to the API PO4 and Salifert Alk.It depends on each test. For example API phosphate will last for 46 tests, Salifert Alk will last around 12 tests before you'll need to refill reagent 2.
In addition to this, how many test kits we will need to start out with. For instance, I got a new Giesemann phosphate kit, but it doesn't have enough reagent 2 to be able to run a test.Do you have a list of how long each test we can use with Reefbot will last?

Most of them need 1 from each. Only Giesmann Po4 need 3 and Salifert Kh 2.In addition to this, how many test kits we will need to start out with. For instance, I got a new Giesemann phosphate kit, but it doesn't have enough reagent 2 to be able to run a test.
