Re: Ph Meter
I have one of the Hanna Ph "pen" I think Ph hep, it's O.K., but you have
to calibrate it too much. If I was testing 100 tanks I think I would have
to calibrate it 4 to 5 times.
Just to rant a little, who in their right mind would package the Ph
calibration solutions, which you use a lot, in a box with 5 of each and
the TDS calibration solution, which I might use twice a year, in a box of
20? Really annoying! Fortunately I don't test the Ph that much.
