Waterproof pH Tester with ±0.1 pH Accuracy

Item #:PH2 

   Our Price: $84.00
Availability: In Stock
Usually ships In 2-3 Business Days

This is our lower priced but quite reliable pH meter providing automatic temperature compensation and pH readings to 0.1 resolution. It provides automatic calibration at 1 or 2 points 

It offers ease-of-use in combination with its affordability, making it possible for non-technical and technical personnel alike to measure pH on the spot, accurately and inexpensively.

Meter comes with one packet of each of the following:

Cleaning Solution
pH 4.01 Buffer
pH 7.01 Buffer

For more information about using a pH meter, see our blog article "Using a pH Tester."

The meter does come with a small packet of both pH buffers 7.01 and 4.01.
You can use the pH7.01 as a storage solution.

We also suggest you order the bottle of storage solution as well as a couple of packs (or a bottle) of the cleaning solution (milk proteins are tough to remove from the probe).

The pH buffer packs included with the meter do not last long so perhaps you might consider getting the bottles of those as well.

Cleaning the meter and storing it well with the storage solution is essential to good pH readings. The calibration with buffers should be done every day before you begin using the meter.

Q. I recently purchased the Hanna pH meter and am trying to use it (first time) and it will not calibrate and it will not read any measurement below 7.0. I have tried to calibrate following the directions and the 1 point will calibrate but will not read any measurement below 7.0 and tried two point calibration and it will always say wrong with the pH 4 buffer. If you use the pH 4 buffer first when it says 7.01 it will also accept it as 7.01 which is pretty weird since it is supposed to recognize the buffer solutions. What should I do now? All pH readings come in the range of 7.3 and 7.1. Baking soda and water is 7.2. Vinegar is 7.1.

A. I sometimes find that the new meter needs some time to rehydrate. Have you tried soaking the probe for 30-60 min in the cleaner, rinsing, and then in the 7.0 buffer? If you do use the wrong buffer the meter is incorrectly calibrated and will then not read correctly until a successful calibration is done. I have had meters that took a few hours to rehydrate before they calibrated correctly. It is pointless to try to measure pH until you get a good calibration.
