Buying a "better" electrode won't necessarily help you here.  This is true
of any glass membrane pH electrode.  By their very nature the glass
membrane slowly deteriorates over time.  This typically results in
non-linear and/or erratic behavior depending on the extent of
deterioration.  Even the "best" pH electrodes need to be properly
maintained, and periodically replaced.
