color blind

Ok it is time I fess up. I am color blind and find it almost impossible for me to tell the colors on my water tests. Lucky for me, my wife helps me with that part and tells me where my test results are in respect to the test sheets. My question is, is there any equipment out there that will give me a digital read out for the ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites. Any suggestions would be appreciated cause I don't want to have to depend on someone else when it comes time to do my water tests.
Thanks in advance.
Bill

The answer is yes, but rather expensive. You will get more accurate results with digital equipment than we could ever hope for with our little difficult color charts.


Hanna in one of the brands that makes that equipment.

Hanna is one of the brands. I think about 150 per test. I have seen tank controllers that have Ph sensors.

If you take a look at Doctor Fosters And Smith, they have them, but very expensive!
