Convenient Ph meter featured

Installation and Operation Though proper care is necessary for an accurate reading, this product is not too difficult to figure out. Just immerse electrode in Distilled or RO water to activate. After each use rinse in RODI water and make sure a little RO water is in the cover cap to prevent electrode from drying out. Calibration is a little awkward, you have to insert the included tool into a very small recess and turn the calibration nut. I calibrate every 2 weeks.


Performance vs. Expectations Product is easy to use and provides an accurate High or low range Ph test. Up to 3 point calibration; 4, 7, and 10 ensures accurate reading. Many meters in this price range only allow 2 point calibration.


Value for money Product is a bit pricey, $50-75 but worth the price tag considering its accuracy and the important role of Ph especially in reef systems. Just determine how long it would take to pay for it if you are using liquid ph test kits!


Customer Support No issues or experience with customer service.


Liked about it Easy to use, convenient, accurate.


Didn't like Awkward calibrating the unit. Also I had issues with water getting in the water proof cap where batteries are held. Though I must say this was largely my fault as I didn't ensure the rubber washer was in tight. The water destroyed my unit.

Great tool for general PH testing quick and easy.

Installation and Operation Upon opening the case the device comes with there will be a big sign in the case that states the probe must be rehydrated for 4-6 hours prior to calibration in test solution 4.01. then begin use after first calibration.


Performance vs. Expectations this instrument performs as expected remove cap turn device on insert probe into sample and wait a second or two for fluid to balance and take reading, then replace probe into wet solution IE RO/DI water.


Value for money this product is a good value for the money, however, I would rather see a monitor or controller used.


Customer Support I have had no interaction with customer service.


Liked about it It's Water proof, easy to use, easy to calibrate, durable construction, simple to read.


Didn't like The cap that covers the hydrated tip should be able to hold the unit upright and be water covering the tip with fluid at all times. the instrument should come with ph 10.1 calibration fluid for saltwater tanks.

The instructions behind the big sign differ from the big sign.

Liked about it Simple and straightforward testing.


Didn't like same issue with any tester, you need to calibrate it carefully and it can take time and cost money.
