Looks like a good meter!


#2476

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


#2477

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:


#2478

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…


#2480

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:


#2481

@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!


#2482

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

@MattyBear
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.


#2484

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…


#2485

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…


#2487

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


#2488

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


#2489

Here’s the bulb on mine…


The new meter has a replaceable tip and one point calibration


#2490

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


#2492

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:


#2493

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