Then and the human eyes that read them.

Consistent is not the same as accurate. MY watch
consistently reads seconds but it's allway about 4-10
seconds ahead of the atomic clock in Colorado. But yes,
LaMotte is an excellent kit.

You can't put it *somewhere* that bubbles are rising up
into it? If not, sounds like yo have enough CO2 to me ;-)

You done all the reasonable stuff a consumer can be
expected to do. I would send it to the manufacturer under
warranty with a descript of the problem. It's not well
behaved, maybe than can teach it some discipline. But they
will probably just send a replacement. 

They aren't all like this; my pinoint has been a perfect
little angel.
