Test Strip v. FasTest
I have a bottle of strips that I like to do "in between" the FasTest tests (I like frequent reassurances that everything is ok). I know the strips aren't very accurate, but I figure in a pinch it is better than not doing a test at all (?).
I've been watching my nitrAte climb over the last week or so from under 10 to around 30 (ish) on the test strips so I decided to do a baseline FasTest before my water change to find out what the number really was only to get a reading of dead zero on my FasTest. While I'm thrilled by this... does it sound likely? Are the strips likely to show a false positive result?
