I would say slither is right. A couple years and I would really start second guessing the results.

The nitrate, phosphate, gh, calcium, copper, and ammonia tests are good for 3 years, the nitrite and kH tests are good for 4 years, and the pH is good for 5 years... those are for fw tests... not sure about sw or pond tests.
