About pH meters
Couple of questions
Buffer solutions for calibration, best value? Fluid in bottles or sachets? Tablets? Powder?
Same for storage solution, do you need the proper stuff?
Do you need distilled water for rinsing?
Thanks in advance for your superior wisdom! 🙏
I wouldn’t think there’s much difference in sachets/bottles/powder all do the same job just achieved different ways.
for me like Woolie a small bottle of ph7 , some need ph4 also will last you a long time.
the Bluelab I bought had a sachet of storage solution with it, and a sachet of 4&7 to get you going.
I just clean mine under the tap with a very fine baby bottle brush
edit to add, buy a decent one once 👍🏻 I’d say half the forum bought cheap, regretted it and ended up with a good one eventually
Morning @Teleman, I have a Hanna meter and this is what I use.
this is the meter I use.
It came with the sachets and then I got more.
Then I got the individual containers for more accurate calibration. Hanna offers a LOT of choices, you don't need their top lab grade shit. I got the least expensive products. It did take a bit of time on their website comparing products.
Storage solution - must have.
Cleaning solution - must have.
Then either sachets or bottles.
EC solution - I really don't know if the sachets calibrate the EC for a fact or not. That why I got the recommend 1413 uS/cm solution.
I store mine in the boxes in the dark.
Hope this helps man. peace
Mine is an apera meter and it uses ph7 and ph4 calibration solutions which I get pre-mixed from Amazon. The apera doesn’t need a storage solution, just a couple drops of water in the cover to keep the bulb wet.
Random acts of kindness make the world a better place
Cheers guys 👍
I use a essential ph meter which came with calibration fluid
