If it`s doing what you want I would not switch. I do know that if you are doing weekly or bi weekly PWC`s with IO then your iodine is OK. The only thing I would check is you calcium level. IO has been known for lower calcium levels.

Seachem make an iodine test kit, if you just want to know what your levels are. I've never used it as it seemed complicated.

if you buy that test make sure you buy some distilled water or have a DI unit as you need it to run it
