Default pH tester recommendations

Looking for a test kit that can accurately test from 6.6 to 7.6 in 0.2
increments (6.8, 7.0, 7.2, etc...). My town's tap water is usually 7.4 but
sometimes is more and I try to maintain a pH between 7.0 to 7.2, so I need
to accurately measure pH in this range.

I've tried Aquarium Pharm's 6.0 to 7.6 test kit but it steps from 7.2 to 7.6
and isn't accurate enough.

Thanks,
E.Otter

Get a meter. Those color compare tests are a pain. I use the Hana Instruments
-pHep and love it! There are several places on the web that sell them. I got
mine from dirtcheapro.com. Great cusromer service.

Hope this helps

Found this site while searching for one awhile back, they have a lot of
interesting do-dads; http://www.labdepotinc.com/default.aspx

The one you listed doesn't seem to work.
