    I got mine off Amazon for around $15. It's been on since day one, I have only had to calibrate it once so far. It's a yellow one with a black cap. I'll find the link

      Little, how much has your PH changed in the two years you've use the PH meter. I've been using the same water source for 10 years and the PH has never changed. I have my own well. So when my PH meter died about 2 years ago, I went with Litmus Paper and it served me just fine.

        The ph in the water is the same it's been the same for the longest and I know about how much PH down I have to put but I like to be on point and I do DWC my PH be changing so I like to check it every day to make sure it's ok and I like to check the run off water in my coco so I do need a PH meter to have things on point ,,

        I'm curious Canuck. How often has your PH changed ?

        I'm not on a well - after a rainfall I have seen pH got over 8,0. It rains a bit in the Pacific Northwest, so that's why I test it. Lately it's been real good - after adding all the nutes, usually around 6.0

        Wow, that's a lot.

      The yellow pH meter that was shown here can break easily. That's because if you sink it for an instant on the water or even if the security line it's a bit below the water level it can oxidate the entire system in like a few hours. Had two of these and recently bought the third, watch out for the water inside of it, almost a week on a tupperware with rice and nothing so far. The vendor told me to put a sample of the water on a coffee cup and test the pH there to reduce those risks and just like that my problem's solved!! Anyway, thought it could be usefull to someone in here who owns one.

      Cheers!
