The nice thing about a birthday in February is that you can combine the extra cash from your returned Christmas gifts with your anticipated birthday gifts to try to convince your wife that you need high end test kits.
I know I don't need them, but I'm a testing geek and I want them. I'm starting to do my own research but wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions for the best way to test for, at least, Nitrate and Phosphate using photometers/colorimeters on a budget of around $400 to $500, including reagents, etc.
I am considering the Hanna N and P photometers - seems like they would do the job, but then I can't use them for additional parameters in the future.
Seems like I could also go the generic route with a colorimeter, and then use it for any parameters I want in the future, but that is looking like it would break the budget.
Anyone been down this road?
