    As the technology grows, what testing method for ponds do you use?

    LaMotte Reagent Test- Drops?

    Pondmaster test strips ?

    Microbe Lift test strips?

    Do you use 5 ways or individuals?

    Would like to see some feedback to see what is used across the country.

    For in-house testing, I use a Hanna Bench Colorimeter.

    For on-site testing, I use XTech XStik Multi-probes.

    I use Hach test strips only for alkalinity.

    Test strips, as a rule, do not have a very long 'shelf life' in humid climates and the Gulf Coast is usually very humid.

    I have the C200, which is an older model, but uses the same reagents and will perform the same wide spectrum of tests parameters as the newer ones.
