I like the nitrate checker. After I did the test several times, it started to get easy to do quickly. I really like the readout - it's much better than the color comparison type tests.

Unfortunately, I lost the filter assembly washer down the drain. Now I can't run the test. Since neither the washer or the filter assembly is available separately, I'm not sure how to get going again.

Anyone else have the problem, or just me?

Found that a standard garden hose washer is about the right size; however, they are generally to thick for the filter assembly.

I managed to cross section one with an exacto knife - not an easy task. It worked in the filter assembly and I was able to perform the test.

Hanna, you should put a spare washer in the kit. It is a real hassle if it gets lost.

I never saw that the filter assembly was available separately - that's good. But the price of $13 seems a bit salty. The whole checker is only $50

Hanna sells a replacement. Even buying multiple filters the price per unit seems high. Have you Googled soft silicone gasket, o-ring or washer?
