    There was a recent discussion about the testing of test kits, particularly about whether one or several calibrations were sufficient to determine the accuracy of a test kit.

    Since "Calibrate your test kits" is one of the two most common bits of advice given here (the other is "Add more CO2"), I suggest that a forum be set up titled. "Test Kit Evaluations." Those who do calibrate their test kits could post the results there, and those who were contemplating purchasing new test kits could use it as a buying guide.

    It would also provide numerous observations to satisfy any need for multiple evaluations of a test kit.

    Sounds good to me.

    A good primer for making calibration standards to gauge the test kit test method is required I'd suggest.

    Left C did a nice easy run done, I've not checked these figured/amounts etc.
    I do that each time I run a standard without a calculator, but that's just me an old habit. Keeps the brain working I guess?:eek:

    I'll suggest it to Greg Watson and we'll get it going from there.
    Thanks for the idea Bill!

    Regards,

    Going with this idea for test kits, I think a good discussion for CO2 ought to be considered as well.

    THAT WILL BE NEXT:)
