Anyone find an inexpensive source for refilling their La Motte test kits? I need to refill just the tablets in my test kit for kH (Alkalinity, 4491-DR)

Re: La Motte refills source?

Try Marine Depot, you'll need to ask.
They have the better prices for KH, Ca, NO3 and PO4 test kits from Lamotte.
Nothing over 50$

also:

www.BenMeadows.com
www.Aquaticeco.com

And I think Lamotte even.

Miller Analytical

Miller Analytical has refills. Not the cheapest, but he seems to carry the whole LaMotte line.

http://www.milleranalytical.com/

The reorder kits are not priced on the web site, but they are generally much cheaper than the complete kits, especially for the kits that include comparators.

You'll have to call to place an order (the guy I've spoken with seems to be the owner, knowledgeable and helpful).

Re: La Motte refills source?

Marine depot doesn't offer refills but the whole kit is so cheap from them that may be way to go for many. I ordered a refill from Miller Analytical , thanks for the help. Here's my research for future cheapies:

Marine depot $20 for whole kit 4491-DR/ LM1111 with shipping within CA of $7 comes to 26.98.

BenMeadows 16.90 for refill and $28.94 with shipping from WI to CA.

Aquatic Eco $12.18 for refill plus $5 for being under minimum order amount of $20, plus shipping at about $11 so $28 final I think.

Miller Analytical does have a great selection of refills, you can get whole refill kit or just individual bottles. Prices: $12.20 for whole refill, or Ask for T2311H for the indicator pellets only at $5.25 for 50 or T2311J for a bottle of 100/ 7.25. Also available in bottles of 500 or 1000. These are drop shipped direct from La Motte. Estimating $11 for shipping from PA to CA looks like $18.25 for a bottle of 100 tablets.
