What is obsessive compulsive to the average mind is everyday life for the mind of an engineer. We feel the need to overanalyze everything that is not completely optimized. If the process by which water parameters were being tested had deficiences, it is our innate nature (nay, our duty as engineers!) to investigate every possible avenue to remedy the situation.
Or screw it up even worse in the process, haha.
Bottom line, I've asked those very three questions many, many times. And the answer I've found, time after time, is this: Deal with it, or buy a LaMotte kit. They're expensive as hell, yep. But they're the benchmark. Other test kits I've used have been much cheaper and good enough to get my by most of the time, but if you want data you can trust, you'll have to spring for LaMotte.
