Can't go wrong with a bluelab combo have mine for more than 5 years no hiccup just change ph probe when required, for me around every year.

Seems legit, great price point.

I use drops and even if I get a Jellas I will confirm
with the drops from time to time.

Good thread

overbudjet, out of curiosity... what's the ticket on a new probe each year?

Dropped Cat, that's exactly what I do. I used drops for a few years, then finally sprang for a Hanna. Used it for a few years until the probe died and discovered the new cheapie generation of pH pens.

A plastic bag and tight rubber band are recommended for waterproofing the cheapies. Waterproofing is the only thing I really appreciate in the more expensive pens. That, and I still need one with .xx accuracy at some point. lol Definitely not cheap.

I use these for ph and ec. Was sick of buying Bluelabs once a year. Now if I have an issue I just have to buy a new probe. Not a new meter all the time.
As stated, you can also get a cheapo meter. Just get calibration solution to check it.
The key is storing your meter properly. I always store my pH pen in 4.01ph solution. It never dries out(which is the #1 reasons pens go bad)and always is cal'd

I have Blue Lab pens for ph and ec and also have the combo monitor. The pens have served me well for the last two years but when I began mixing nutes in 30 gallon batches I opted for the combo meter since the probes stay in the solution and have far quicker reaction times than the pens, especially the ph probe.

I've never used other brands, expensive or cheap as the Blue Labs have fit the bill.

Why is everyone shitting on Blue Lab? I've had my Blue Lab now since 2014 with no probs. Fucker done dry out on me more than once and keeps on ticking. See I think the trick is to only use Blue Lab calibration solutions. Some people might use other brands which might fuck shit up, my 2¢

PEACE!

Blue Labs, hands down.
As long as I calibrate it once a week, it never fails me.
I agree, I use only Blue Lab calibration salutation to calibrate.
