Digital water testers

Postby Methodical2 » Wed Feb 20, 2019 3:36 pm

Are there any digital water testers out there that's any good and test all the important water paramaters? I use the API water testing, but sometimes it's hard to tell the reading because the colors don't really match. I tried searching for a topic on this, but I may be doing the searches incorrectly because I got no results. If there is a topic on this, I'd appreciate a link to it.

Thanks...

I have seen digital meters and tester but not for our major ones.
Most of them are sold separately and upward of $500 u.s.

Here is something that may interest you and help you in finding something

PH and TDS meters can be found for cheap, if that helps. Nitrite/ammonia meters seem to be rather expensive. Never found an all-in-one solution, but if such existed, given the cost of the ammonia meters, it would be brutally pricey.
Why in the world are we here? Surely not to live in pain and fear!

Thanks. I never got notification of your replies. Yeah, I did find them to be expensive and the reviews for the cheaper units keeps me from purchasing. I did get a TDS meter though.
