I have a question about the lifetime of my pH probe. I bought a Milaukee
SMS 122 probe and controller in September 2002. I was under the impression
that I would have to replace the probe after about a year. But it's been
three years now, and it seems to be working as well as ever.
Every few months, I check the calibration against Vital Sine pH 7.01 and
4.01 solutions, and it's never more than 0.1 unit off. Usually it's right
on the mark and doesn't need any tweaking. As long as this is the case, is
there any reason to replace the probe? Thanks.
