Ideal for all pH testing, water purification applications, wastewater regulation, aquaculture, hydroponics, colloidal silver, labs & scientific testing, pools & spas, ecology testing, boilers & cooling towers, water treatment, wine, coffee, agriculture and more.
Recommended accessories: pH Electrode Storage Solution (PH-STOR) and pH Calibration Buffers (PH-BUF). Note that the meter includes single use packets of the storage solution and a pH 7.0 buffer. This is enough in the beginning, but additional storage solution and calibration buffers will be necessary in the future (exactly when depends on individual usage and needs). The storage solution and pH buffers (while in powder form) do not expire.
The sponge in my cap is dry. Is this okay?
How often do I need to calibrate?
I use my meter for hydroponics. Does it need any special care?
Can I use the PH-200 for testing distilled, DI or RO water?
NOTE for owners of the PH-200: Your PH-200 is shipped with a small amount of storage solution in the cap. The sponge should be moist (not dripping wet), but it is possible that this solution can leak out during shipping. If you have received a PH-200 with the cap (or sponge) dry, simply refill it with the enclosed extra storage solution and allow it to soak, standing upright, for one hour. Your meter will be perfectly fine and the small extra bottle is included for this purpose. Never refill the cap with distilled water and never use the cap for testing purposes.
This meter has a 1 year warranty
