Everything you need to clean, hydrate and calibrate pH probes.
The instrument is only as accurate as the probe is clean. Accurate readings simplify crop management and provide improved growth.
Probe cleaning and correctly storing pH probes ensures you get the most accurate readings possible and will maximize the life of a probe.
The probe surface is where the instrument takes the reading of the solution or soil/media. If the probe face is dirty or contaminated, the readings may be inaccurate. Much like the windshield of a car, if it s dirty you can t see out! If the probe face is dirty, it cannot read the solution or soil accurately.
pH probes specifically, should be kept wet at all times for optimal performance and life.
Follow a few easy steps for longer probe life and greater accuracy:
- Rinse the probe tip in fresh tap water between readings and after use.
- Keep the pH probe tip wet by placing the storage cap on the probe when not in use. If it dries, it dies.
- The pH probe is a glass instrument, handle it with care.
Every 30 days, remember these simple steps:
- CLEAN - the probe tip
- HYDRATE - the pH probe in KCI storage soultion
- CALIBRATE - the pH probe to two pH points: pH 7.0 and pH 4.0.
- STORE - the pH probe in KCI storage solution.
