American Marine Pinpoint Salinity Calibration Fluid Information




An aquarium is a controlled environment. You have to control the temperature, the water flow, the acid levels, the alkalinity levels, etc. Of course, you have automated systems in place to do most of the job for you such as heaters, pumps, filters, controllers, etc. But even these systems need to be adjusted every now and then to make sure that they're doing their jobs correctly.

For example, a monitor for salinity regularly checks the water for its salt content. It makes sure that the salt content is constant. The system is calibrated to recognize the accepted levels or the standards. But in time, the readings will become less and less accurate and will deviate more and more from the standard. When it reaches that point, it doesn't mean you have to throw away your system and buy a new one. No. It just means that it's time for recalibration.

The American Marine Pinpoint Salinity Calibration Fluid from Pet Store is specifically used for recalibrating the American Marine Pinpoint Salinity Monitor. The American Marine Pinpoint Salinity Calibration Fluid comes in three variants in terms of nitrate content, but all bottles are of the same size. If you wish to get accurate readings from your monitor, make sure to grab a bottle of this fluid now!

Manufacturer Info

American Marine Pinpoint Aquarium Supplies
American Marine was founded in 1989 by a devoted aquaculturist who was passionate about quality and precision. Back in the late 80s, critical water quality parameters were mostly tested with colorimetric test kits. Some digital instruments were borrowed from university or laboratory sources with mixed results but always a high price tag. Expensive European aquarium equipment was always a disappointment when it finally arrived. Inexpensive "pens" gave no better results than color test kits and prematurely failed even when testing for approximate readings.

Using the most current technology and design, American Marine introduced Pinpoint Monitors, which have become the most respected line of digital instruments in the aquaculture business. American Marine was the first to introduce a 2-year warranty on each and every monitor. For every purpose, from a goldfish bowl to a salmon hatchery, Pinpoint Monitors are called into duty every day because of their rugged design, precise readings and reasonable cost. American Marine has sold Pinpoint Monitors on every continent. Each monitor is powered by a standard 9 volt battery that is available worldwide.

Comments: These bottles do not have an expiration date, so you will never know just how old the produce is you are purchasing! I had a bottle that was purchased 8 months ago read .005 off. The bottle was stored at room temperature and always kept tightly sealed. Unacceptable!

Comments: I was fairly upset that I order the Refractometer from Customer Service and was not prompted to order the calibration fluid as well. As soon as the meter arrived I followed the instructions provided and calibrated using distilled water. Customer Service was nice enough to send a video a few days later with calibration instructions that completely contradicted the ones with the meter, so I ordered the fluid. After calibrating with this fluid my tank was at 1.01. I'll assume that since my fish and reef tank are still alive, this fluid is absolute junk.

Comments: I'd been calibrating my refractometer with ro/di like the instructions on my refractometer said, and since my corals were looking a bit weird I figured I might as well try actual calibration fluid. When I tried it I found out that my refractometer has been reading .004 too high! Checked other refractometers and ALL of them were reading a minimum of .001 to .002 higher than they should have been, even though they were zeroed in with ro/di water. If you've been calibrating your refractometer with ro/di instead of calibration fluid then you're not getting accurate readings, this stuff is well worth the money.

Comments: Do yourself a favor and purchase this if you are using any type of refractometer. This solution is 35ppt and will help guarantee you are at the proper salinity levels.

Comments: Nice insurance for verifing the upper scale your refractometer. Zeroing your refractometer with distilled water doesn't insure its' accuracy at 1.0264.
