Well - broke down and ordered 3 Lamotte kits today...

3110 Nitrate Test Kit

7297-DR Carbon Dioxide Test Kit

3138 Potassium Test Kit (yep!!)


I had it up to ______ with the others - although the red-sea PO4 kit seems reliable so I never ordered phosphate from Lamotte.

I think personally you are correct Tula... that thought was out of sheer despiration...

Will do...

I don't mind the dollar per test (the refills are far cheaper for thier kits actually)...

I rather pay 1.00 for a test that is correct, accurate, and easy to read rather than pull out what little hair I have left with these other kits:-)

At this point in my life the pita or agravation factor is worth the few extra bones to pay in order to avoid the frustration.

Never heard of a pottasium test kit before... Did you use any anti-algae liquid/powder/whatever?
