Back to marine after a 12 year absence and I see water testing hasnt imporved in that time.

I always had a problem testing alkalinity, adding drops of reagent one at a time until you reach desired colour.

Does anyone know of a better method?

Welcome back I'm afraid it's still very much the same but I have found the red sea one allot easier
Or their is always the Hanna checker

Very little has changed in decades, but consumers are able to get hold of existing test kits much more easily nowadays even though they have been around for decades.

Just googled the Hanna checker, not bad but pricey per test
