Cheap test kits are cheap for a reason. I used to work in a lab and trust me, there`s a reason they spend so much more on test kits. Calibrate your probe with a known standard often and keep an eye on your kh. IMO, they`re good enough for kh as a little inaccuracy won`t make a big deal.
Lamotte apparently makes good kits but they`re pricey.
Check out Sully`s poste titled something like 'calibration fluids' in the general section too.
BTW your nitrates should not be at zero in a planted tank.
Ever feel like you`re flying and drowning at the same time?
