Bluelab Test Meters (EC, pH, Temp)
Electronic EC and pH test meters allow a grower to take instantaneous readings of their nutrient tank solution, growing media, run off or media slurries to gauge crop performance and to ensure they are not over or under feeding their crop.
The portability of the meters allows the grower to visit multiple sites in quick succession to gain an overall picture of system performance and crop health.
It is an ideal device to have when multiple tanks need to be tested in different locations.
The meter gives an “on demand” reading. This means the meter needs to be turned on and inserted into the nutrient solution before a reading can be taken.
After taking a reading, the meter it is then turned off and stored in a convenient location for future use.
There are a number of different types of hydroponic meters.
Some meters specialise in measuring one variable only i.e. measuring pH only, or measuring conductivity only
Or you can purchase a Combo meter which can measure a number of variables on the one-meter e.g. pH, conductivity, and temperature.
Pure Hydroponics stocks the Bluelab range of handheld test meters.
We have used this product range for many years and can attest to their reliability and accuracy.
The Bluelab meters are made in New Zealand and have generous warranty periods and full product support.
The Bluelab meters cater for the international growing community. This means that the unit of measurement on the meters can be changed to suit the common unit of measurement used by growers in a particular region. For example, the conductivity readings on their meters are interchangeable between EC, CF, pm 500, ppm 700 scale.
Growers can rest assured they have made the right choice when they choose a Bluelab meter for their hydroponic farm.
