    How often do you guys replace your refractometer calibration solution? Im guessing that there will be a bit of evaporation in the bottle, throwing off your calibration. How often before this happens on average?

    My RK2 screwed up and I had to reset it. I thought I had some 7 and 10 PH calibration solution but I don't. I hate paying shipping on items that cost $1. If I have to order them I will buy some other stuff with it I just hate paying needless shipping.

    I'm having issues with my pH--no matter what I do it won't raise. At one point it was around 7.8-7.9 in the morning and slowly rose over the couse of the day to about 8.2 max. Now, it's about 7.6 in the a.m., and rarely goes above 8.0 at night. We're using the buffer and nothing is...
