Api unreliable? ?

I bought the fresh water master kit roughly 5 months ago. Last month I noticed I was getting low on some of the sonlutions, so I ordered another kit on amazon. Does this stuff go bad, or did I get sold a bad batch. I was testing my nirates, and ran out while adding the second bottle. I only got 5 drops in. It's shows my nirates really high (left bottle) . So I got out the new bottles and it showed my levels really low (middle bottle). I thought maybe I didn't shake up the new bottles enough, so I shook them harder and retested (right bottle). I'm not sure what to think of the results. Do the new bottles need to oxidize more?

What does that kit cost you? Have you checked into HACH company. They have an assortment of kits.

Learning what I can..

$30 at petco. That's where I got my first kit. Then $25 on amazon.
