Soil pH ppm testing


#1

Do I need a tester for each of these, or 1 for all which is the best soil pH ppm tester. I would like to get a 1 for all… Happy Growing, I’ve had a stroke can’t remember stuff like I used to,that might be my problem lol…:facepunch:

Welcome to ILGM.

You need a PH tester for mixing nutrients to the proper PH, and a TDS or EC tester for ppm. Buy the testers for Hydro or Water testing. Don’t worry about a soil tester.

There is no need to test the medium unless you develop an issue. If you do;’ You can use the same liquid testers suggested above to measure the PH, and ppm of the runoff.

I use Milwaukee Instruments testers. Hanna is a good brand, and Blue Truncheon Meter is excellent also. If you want to give me an idea of your budget; I will find you links to the better deals on Amazon.

Peace, lw
