Apera PC60 Probe Corrosion

Anyone have an experience where the 2 metal probes on their Apera PC60 corrode even though stored properly. I put growing to the sidelines for a couple of months recently and am now checking pH and PPM again. The probes have a brown contamination collecting, are discolored, and I cannot get a legitimate reading. The pen has been in the recommended, uncontaminated (as best as I could take steps to prevent it) environment throughout its storage period.

I know myfriendis410 had the apera, gave up finally after some issues similar to yours and with with a blue lab.

I’ll have to try the Blulab next. I’ve unfortunately ordered another PC60 and can’t cancel it as it is already out for delivery today.

Thanks for the tip.

Yep, no worries. Just relaying what I’ve seen on the forum. Especially the people that use their equipment a lot. Lol

Congrats on becoming a mentor, by the way. It is certainly well-deserved. You contribute great content quite a bit.

Thank you! I really appreciate that. I really enjoy contributing and I hope that really shows. Just giving back to a community that helped me with my first grow so much, and I want others to be successful also. It’s been almost 5 years believe it or not. Lol

I have the same unit with no issues. Could you not get a new probe from the company? I am thinking they are replaceable .
