Re: Lab stuff & ion meters
Tom and Roger:
Thanks for clearing me up on the ion meter thing.
I think I get it now...
First there's the ion meter and then there's the probes. Or buy a meter and
you're only part of the way there.
That probably explains Tom's comment about (snip) "...the probes tend to be a
bit expensive too." and later "How much $$ you got?:)" as in: You'll need a
half dozen of them at least to do much of anything useful 'cause they only
check for specifics i.e. not N in general, but NO3 or NH3, or 4, etc..
$3700.00 hmmmm... price is headed in the right direction though.
Maybe it won't really be all that long if there's enough of a demand and
given a few manufacturing advances. Obviously others beside aquarium people
could use something affordable along these lines - the pool guys, etc.. I
like the concept but then depending on how often you had to calibrate all
those probes and under what conditions they needed to be stored - and I'll
just bet I can guess - I can see where they might not be a whole lot simpler
...at least at this point.
