    I have my TFtest TF100 kit from last year. How long do the reagents accuracy last? Do I need to replace them yearly?

    Re: Reagents

    Depends on how you stored them. If they were stored in the climate controlled house out of the sun, they are likely fine.

    Re: Reagents

    The answer is maybe and that's final!

    I keep my kit indoors and I have no problem using whatever reagents. Some might be over a year old. Who knows? Look at the bottles. If they're not discolored, things are probably okay. And if your readings are about what you think they should be, I wouldn't worry.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    I keep mine under the sink, on a shelf except when I'm using it.
