More About this Item

This new addition to the Oakton EcoTestr product line features updates to make measuring water quality easier and faster. The display is larger with a better viewing angle, has indicators for battery life, readiness, and calibration, and shows both the parameter and temperature readings at the same time.

To enhance field use, the cap was redesigned to be leakproof and can be attached to the top of the meter when not being used—no more lost caps! The cap features a fill line, so you know how much sample you need for an accurate reading when using the cap as a sample cup. It is also wider, providing a base to keep the meter upright for hands-free measurements.

The keypad now has a fourth key to simplify menu navigation while keeping convenient one-touch calibration. The new housing is compatible with lanyards to prevent losing or dropping, but is still waterproof and floats just in case.

Does not hold calibration !

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Oakton EcoTestr pH 2+ Pocket pH Meter:

I am hoping I can get a refund for these. I work in the oil industry and we use Ph Meters constantly. This type of Ph Meter does not hold the calibration. 10,5 is a standard Ph that we try to achieve in our business. Our chemical titrations show Ph higher than this and these meters (I bought quite a few) all read under 10. I can calibrate it for 10 ph and then when I check my fluid, it doesn't read a Ph higher than 10 accurately. Consistently have above 10.5 and most times it doesn't read above 10. I am going to call and try to get somewhat of a refund because this is of no use to me. Money wasted.

    Comments about Oakton EcoTestr pH 2+ Pocket pH Meter:

    I received the new Oakton ECOtestr pH2+ meter in the mail today, I noticed the cap got quite an upgrade from the previous model, its thicker, now has a fill line, and the meter is also equipped with a rubber gasket for a better water tight seal while testing or storing. I removed the cap to add a little probe storage solution in order to hydrate the sensor, and let that sit overnight.

    The new meter has a much larger main screen to display more information. I do like the battery monitor addition, and if you accidentally leave the meter on, it will shut itself off after 8 minutes of non use. The larger display also gives a temperature reading which is nice so you don't shock your roots with cold water.

    Its now time to calibrate and while the new meter allows for 3 point calibration, 2 point works just fine for our needs and any calibration solution will do. I have a couple sample bottles of PH 7.0 and PH 4.0, so those are what we will use today. Calibration of the new meter was easy, you press the calibration button, dip the sensor into your calibration solution and the meter does the rest. There is a CALC icon that flashes when the meter is finding its value, and then a CHECK MARK when its found. After a few seconds, the meter hit its calibration and was done. All I needed to do was repeat the process for both of my calibration solutions to achieve a 2 point calibration, and now I am ready to test my feed.

    I already know where my PH lands given the PPM's I am using, but we check daily and confirm before ever feeding our plants. After a few drops of PH up or PH down depending on your waters buffer, I stir vigorously and dip the meter into my reservoir. The number found its target pretty quickly and there is a new CLOCK icon that flashes, within a few seconds we had a CHECK MARK and I was done. Adjust with PH up or down as needed until you reach your desired PH, since we run passive hydroponics, we want to be in the area of 5.8. The new meter works GREAT!

    Comments about Oakton EcoTestr pH 2+ Pocket pH Meter:

    This item is very easy to use. The only issue we saw is that the unit arrived with the batteries in backwards and at first we thought it did not work until we opened and checked batteries. Once they were reinstalled properly we liked the ease of functionality.

        A:

        We typically recommend that pH meters are calibrated before each use. At the very least once a week, with new fresh buffers to ensure accuracy.
