Hmmm... did you buy the whole kit? There are two bottles for ammonia in there right?

8 drops of bottle number 1 and then 8 drops of bottle number2?

Also each of the bottles have codes on them to show when they were sold. I think you're good for 2 or three years after date on the bottles. I forget exactly but you can google it.

Would hate to see you go out and buy more of the same thing again.

Should be good for 3 years but it's possible that they've lost their effectiveness. Someone pulled this post from the API website or called them directly. Good luck..

Each reagent bottle has a Lot # printed
on the bottle. The last four digits are the month and year of
manufacture. Example: Lot # 28A0102. This is a
pH reagent manufactured
in January of 2002. Pond Care Wide Range pH,
ammonia, High Range pH,
Nitrate,
phosphate, Copper, calcium and GH all last for three years.
nitrite and KH will last for four years. Freshwater pH(low range) and
Pond Care Salt Level will last for five years. I would not trust these
kits after they have expired.
