Why not buy Lamotte? That is what I use and it is accurate. It is expensive but I think Hach is even more expensive.

LaMotte is good, but they seem to be on back order with all of my favorite vendors. Can anyone provide vendor suggestions for the best price on LaMotte Nitrate and Phosphate test kits?

Thanks! 8)

I just order from Lamotte directly. I started this a few years ago after I received a test kit from a mail order house and saw that the reagents had expired a year before.
