Dream World (testing times)

So i was thinking last night as I was testing my water, does any company have one diode that you put in the water and gets sent to a LCD screen that messures everything? (no2, no3, calcium, ph, etc.)

Ideally that would be really nice, and save me 30mins a day

Anybody wish they had this?

There are pinpoint monitors avaliable, not sure if they have one for everything. I believe they have salinity, pH, temperature, and a few others. They are separate though, and a little pricy.

You test daily? You should be able to establish a average increase/decrease and dose accordingly and test about once or twice a week.

these exist. I don't recall the name of the product but it is network capable with a built in web server meaning you can point your computer's web browser to it and it gives you info about your system. And if your home network is set up to, you can even "check in" from home or while away on vacation.

This isn't the one I was thinking of, but these folks have a few different automated and remotable systems:
