    This is a good thread to compare the charts given with a particular kit, but I'd warn against using it to print off a chart for your own use. Their are far too many color management issues for this to be of reliable if used in that manner.

    I had thought initially that this thread was just to compare the charts, but then I saw people mention using these scans and photos for their own use.

    Peace,

    Anthony

    SCAN 'FAIL'

    Salifert Copper test-

    Here's a good example of why these should be used for reference only.

    The 0 ppm is indeed white, but the scanner could not 'see' the 0.10 ppm color on here! It's a very glossy card, which probably didn't help.

    RED SEA PHOSPHATE

    A little better than the previous scan, but with the same settings!

    Would anyone happen to have the color chart for the Nutrifin Ph Wide Range Test Kit?

    It would be greatly appreciated :)

    i would suggest a good way to tell minute amounts of difference would be to use reference water like distiled to check for zeros and comparisons then you can tell just where you might be on the chart.
