TEST KITS #1
Hi folks,

Just wondering what people are using for water testing. Currently use the API master test kit, and feel sometimes.the results aren't overly accurate (ran the same test 3 times with 3 separate results)

Suggestions welcome:)

Nutrafin has a decent reputation, also Sera test kits ( I use their nitrate test).

I use nutrafin. Easy to use and easy to understand the results.

JBL is what I use - also very easy to read, and it's possible to buy refills once the bottles run out of liquid (which are cheaper than the initial kit).

Re: TEST KITS #5
For PH, Ammonia and Nitrite - Maidenhead Aquatics own brand ( Good results, I think made by NTL?).
For Nitrate - Tetra (Good results, found API to be poor).
Phosphate - API (good results)
