Quantum Board Grow Room


I think I’m gonna order this meter

SX610 Waterproof pH Pen Tester, ±0.1 pH Accuracy, 0-14.0 pH Range, Suitable for Test Tube Testing, Replaceable Probe https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ESYG6B0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_AoQECb3ZJ1YP4


Looks like a good meter!


I agree, don’t ever remember seeing that one.


I don’t remember seeing that one either. I’ll grab it and let you know how I like it. Free same day shipping with Prime so I’ll have it in hand today :wink:


Very nice!


Apera Instruments AI209 PH20…is this the one that went south on you…I’ve had it for a year and knock on wood so far so good…


Yeah that’s the one @Kcdaniels. It was working great… until it didn’t work at all. Bummer, but hopefully the new one is better :wink:


@MattyBear I just finished reading this whole journal. This has inspired me to aim high! Just switched to qbs a couple weeks ago and already seeing great results! Thanks for all the detailed info!


Thanks for reading my journal and I’m glad you got some good info from it. Glad to have you along :v::bear:


My PH20 only lasted about a year also. It won’t calibrate anymore. I went with the PH60 and so far it’s working fine.


Wow don’t like hearing this…mine is right at 1 year old :roll_eyes: just put it in the 7.0 solution and mine read exactly 7.0…


Thanks for letting me know I’m not the only one. I can’t really recommend it anymore either. Hopefully the new meter lasts a little longer, for both of us :wink:


That glass bulb is delicate and once it cracks it’s all she wrote. That’s where a unit with a replacement probe sounds pretty good: you can keep a spare…


True statement. I have replaced my PH60 tip twice - both times because I broke the glass bulb.


The glass bulb isn’t broken on mine… not that I could see at least. Now I need to check it again lol


Here’s the bulb on mine…

The new meter has a replaceable tip and one point calibration


The probe looks a little off to one side. Maybe it’s broken up inside? Mine is sitting in a box, dry, if I remember right. It’ll be interesting to see if it’s still working when I get around to using it again.


Since this is the QB grow room, do you care if I drop a couple pics of this chronic widow? Still have 2 to 3 weeks and she is a fat opera singer already. Also I had just bought the apera 20. Now I read all this. Maybe I’ll be one of the lucky ones and get a years worth out of it


Go ahead @Budtastic :wink: I like me some bud porn haha. Like I said, I really liked the Apera ph20… until it died on me lol. I bought another Apera product so hopefully the few extra bucks buys me a little more time before this one craps the bed too :rofl::v::bear:


This is chronic widow that is due sometime in next 2-3 weeks. So she should become a true fatty
