Test kits

What's the best all round complete test kit to buy? Was convinced API Master kit but have read several places lately Nutrafin. Opinions?

One I can tell the colours on?

JBL and Sera were mentioned locally here in a similar discussion. I canít really comment as always used API mainly.

Ph using api, meters, pool kits - generally all same.

A pool kh test kit might be better as more accurate reading needed.

For nitrates, even the expensive $200 farm test kit is +\- one reading. As long as trends make sense.

Api phosphate seems ok.
