The Salinity Manager is a new kit from Fauna Marin to help reefers manage the salt content of their saltwater aquarium with greater ease, and accuracy. The kit for Salinity Manager includes a quality conductivity meter, cleaning solution to keep the probe clean, and Salinity Reference to check your test values.
These three parts of the Salinity Manager work together – the meter itself has a new style graphite conductivity which is highly resistant to corrosion. The cleaning Solution ensures that the business end of the conductivity meter stays clean and free from interference in measuring conductivity. Last but certainly not least, the Salinity Reference can give users a degree of confidence in the accuracy of the meter’s test results, and it can be used to calibrate the meter from time to time to keep it working precisely.
One thing we especially love about the Fauna Marin Salinity Manager’s promotional material is that there is no mention of specific gravity; if we’re sending off our water to be tested by Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry aka ICP-OES, it’s about darn time we weaned the reefing hobby off of using specific gravity to describe their actual salinity. The Salinity Manager is priced at 79€ in Europe and should land under $99 in North America. [Fauna]
