RE: LaMotte Test Kits
This is an update to my post on LaMotte kits from last month.
A gentleman with the last name of "LaMotte" has been working
with me to get some of my packaging issues fixed. It turns out
that there were some quality control problems with poorly fitting
lids on the new boxes, my complaint about size and internal
packaging design not withstanding. Future kits may (or may not)
have some of my suggestions considered but I think they are
sincere in their efforts to accommodate customer concerns when
possible. As James Purchase suggested, I plan on combining
much of my test equipment in a custom case now anyway.
The LaMotte reagent refills alone cost more than the brand-X
Nitrate or Phosphate kits but a recent side-by-side "test off"
proves the LaMotte superior IMO. Whether it is worth 7 times
as much is for you to decide. I do these tests frequently and
I'm glad I have good equipment.
If you are considering buying a LaMotte test kit I recommend
you look through all of their available kits at
http://www.lamotte.com/pages/food/testlist.html . This link
has dozens of kits that are not normally listed in the usual
aquarium supplies catalog including, for example, a combination
low-range Nitrate&Phosphate kit and 15 different pH tests
(including several narrow range tests).
