Re: [simoneinzaghi88] Water tester recommendation
[In reply to]
I wondered the same thing when I was new too. Actually there are such all-in-one meters, but they're pretty expensive (maybe RM20,000 upwards). Just not worth getting it. The different tests use different reagents anyway. You can get the basic handheld digital pH reader (with a temperature reading too) as well as a salinity reader. Trans Instruments makes both and they sell for about RM200 each. You can get them from koi dealers like Atari.
For the other tests, you could use the colour based test kits such as the Sera brand. Sometimes they're not entirely accurate though, and make sure you check their expiry date as they don't last forever.
Alternatively, you could get professional water testing companies to come do the tests for you. These tests are much more accurate IMHO. I use Permulab. If you need their telephone number, please PM me.
