I recently bought an API liquid test kit (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, high range pH) and I have tested all my water parameters except ammonia. I've been having ammonia problems lately, so I know I need to test my water. However, when I was testing, I noticed about a million warnings in the manual and on the bottle for the ammonia test. They say the test is highly caustic and very harmful. I'm a little scared to use it - I don't want to accidentally hurt myself or mess up my plumbing doing a weekly ammonia test. It seems a little ridiculous that they don't have a less harmful way to test the water. I'm considering getting the strips instead now that I noticed this, but I know they're not as accurate. Does anyone have any experience with this? Obviously, I can get some latex gloves and be very careful, but I'm wondering what other people who use liquid tests kits do. Thanks for your help.
