Quick start guide

* Salt crusting around the probe is normal, it does not affect the probe. 

Before use

  1. Attach the probe. Connect the probe to the meter via the BNC fitting. 
  2. Loosen the storage cap. Hold cap and twist base one full turn, then gently remove. Not loosening before removal will damage the probe. 
  3. Calibrate your probe to your meter. Read how to calibrate your probe here

Tips for care

Clean and calibrate your pH probe monthly to maintain the probe's accuracy.

  • Always store the pH probe in the storage cap with enough KCl (Potassium Chloride) to cover the probe tip. The probe will become damaged if left dry. 
  • The glass tube can be damaged easily. Take care not to knock the internal tube. 
  • Don't immerse in oils, proteins or suspended solids that will leave a coating on the glass bulb
  • Never store, soak or rinse the probe in RO, distilled or de-ionised water.
