So how close are the numbers?I checked against Hanna, I do own some
And Red Sea Test Kits
And Aquaforest test kits
And API test Kits,
And SALIFERT test kits
And Seachem test kits
And Nyos test kits
I ran out of kits multiple times. I think I am going to have nightmare's on the vial test tubes, color charts, small readings on the needles to make sure it was .70 right oh #&#! I have to do the test again.
I sent in multiple water test throughout the testing cycle.
During the peak of testing I was testing multiple tanks, 3 to be exact and a salt mixing station. 1 with no water changes, 1 with Daily and 1 with water changes every two weeks.
Ditto, I was under the impression that the Hanna Nitrate Tester couldn't/was not meant to test the low levels we try to maintain in a reef tank.@robbyg - I saw as much as a 7% Difference on the Hanna device but on average 3%. for calcium.
Nitrate I am still calculating as the % of difference for the Hanna device was much larger and want to make sure all outliers are removed. I was not here to test the accuracy of test kits but sometimes it felt like that.
Consistency with the test kits was a pain also. Doing a back to back test on the Hanna device itself would sometimes lead to problems as I would see sometimes a 7% difference just in the results of itself. I think I could do just a video now on all the test kits results among themselves lol.
That would make sense if they found issues during the testing period. Why mass produce and run the risk of testing finding a major issue? I hope everyone gets their order fulfilled as quickly as possible though.I don't know. It's hard to interpret what they say. It would not surprise me if they made enough units to send out for testing and stopped.
