    My pH monitor went nutso this morning. My normal check of the tank, my monitor read 14.62 this isnt right. :rolleyes: So, i took it out, cleaned the probe. Its not a battery, i am using the adapter. I tried to calibrate to 7.0 and 10.0 with no luck. Could the probe have gone bad already after a...

    So, I have more tanks than I have cents (this is what some kid said behind my back at the local fish store a while back...I wanted to tell him he looked like most of his cents went towards his drug habbit) (GRIN)<GRIN>....and I am getting tired of filling 5 gallon jugs of RO/DI every other...

But, you know, when you have a monitor on your tank, and you see the numbers all the time, it really makes it more "real", and you can see...

    Hello, I have a PinPoint pH probe and replaced the probe about a year ago. It operates, but it won't calibrate. I can get the 7.0 solution to calibrate, then have to turn the screw really far to calibrate the 10.0 solution, then the 7.0 is way off, and so on. Usually turning the screw just a...
