Well here we are again in the learning process. My ph meter was a cheap 25 dollar thing from Amazon. Worked for a while but things aren't going well, got another cheap one, same brand, calibrated both the same way, different readings! Well fuck this I said. I purchased an Apera PH20 kit with the calibration solutions and everything. Very nice kit, well worth the 109 dollars CDN. Blue lab was over this price and NO SOLUTIONS FOR CALIBRATION! Also heard of people having a hard time with customer service, can't roll the dice that hard for those issues for that kind of $. This meter has a very simple calibration method aswell and all the solutions you need to get started quickly. Detailed instructions and a video online and apparently a very good customer support. 2 year warranty also (6 months for electrode tho). If your looking for a good PH pen for a good price this is a nice unit. Hope this helps someone, happy growing guys!

Nice Cody! I keep 2 ph20 meters around so I can double check solutions if there is a question. I’ve used customer service once and it was instant, I talked to an actual human immediately lol. Apparently a good company and a decent product.

@monkeydo ya that's what I've seen and heard aswell. This looks to be a good product and I'm already impressed how well it works and the ease of checking. I will have distilled water in stock now tho for sure lol. No more hoping the ph is right

@colacody wow! Looks good . In the first pic, did it come with those three larger bottles of product? or did you purchase them separate?

 I have two Ph meters and they both read different. I'm look for a third, cause I guess I want a third fucking number to confuse me?? lol Maybe it will help me trust one of the other ones.  Good price man, hope it works well for you.      peace

@colacody 

Purchased a Com-300 about 5 years ago, used it a few times with my RO system.

Dusted it off to use with my first grow 3 months ago, and couldn't believe it was only 0.2 out before  recalibration.

As they say mate, you get what you pay for (usually)....😁

Well, we'll just see about that...😁

@matthew-elton absolutely agree man. I have been in the dark here it seems lol. My budget cheap one is .2 higher it shows. The red one is COMPLETELY FUCKED LOL at 1.2 off lol glad I got the calibration solution with this kit. Takes the guess work out and the company is a stand up company
