Default Testing water with meters

Hello,

I was wondering if you guys could recommend a probe or meter which tests the
water for the following:

- Nitrite
- Nitrate
- Ammonia
- PH

Any ideas? I hate these damn test kits!!!

Thanks for any help! I am in the UK.

Regards,

Gary.

There are multi-meters out there for laboratory research, but even if
you were willing to look past the price tag (think small automobile),
you'd have to spend a half hour calibrating it for each test.
Considering that you dislike the test kits, I could only imagine how
you'd feel about having to take a year of analytical chemistry to
interpret your results.
