I was born with a vision problem, I can not see differences in shades of color. This makes home water testing almost impossible. Is there some kind of affordable water meter that would give a read out?

It depends on what you consider affordable, but Hanna makes a number of colorimeters, I would consider Alkalinity to be the most important value to monitor.

A hand held PH meter can be picked up at a hydroponics store.

As far as measuring ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate, then experience/time and algae levels are the best indicators.

That or you could find a place that tests your water that you can trust .In Danville there is a small petshop that gives you a printout of your water quality .

I have the Seneye monitor. It's not cheap but it allows me to read temperature, pH, and ammonia levels from my phone and get alerts for conditions like low water or out-of-normal-boundary pH/ammonia/temp.
