Ph & Ec Meter Cleaning & Calibration service – Send us your professional digital meter to be professionally diagnosed cleaned and recalibrated we can offer this service for any digital ph and or ec ( nutrient ) meter, wand, pen, static monitor.
This Service will allow you to send us Your digital nutrient meter or digital ph meter to us to be professianly diagnosed, cleaned and recalbrated.
Digital meters ( especially the more expensive ) are very sensitive and need to be properly looked after and maintained, failure to do this can have dramatic results on the reading of the meters and even more dramatic on the results you get more your plants by using meters that read inacurately

Look After these pens properly and they will look after you, hg-hydroponics recommends the blue lab ph and ec pens!
The Bluelab EC Pen and Bluelab ppm Pen are the latest innovation for hand held conductivity meters and the ultimate handy solution for measuring conductivity.
Hydroponic growing lets you give the best care possible to your plants. The quality of care is in your control.The Bluelab EC and ppm pens measure how much food the plant has available. You have the option of either the Bluelab EC Pen or the Bluelab ppm Pen.The Bluelab EC and ppm pens provide a compact, quick and handy way to manage the success of your crops to ensure they have the nutrients they need. Teamed with our Bluelab pH Pen, you have a handy, convenient and accurate system for ensuring optimum plant growth and health.
The Bluelab pH Pen, Bluelab EC Pen and Bluelab ppm Pen range has been specially developed as an affordable and effective option for hobby or small scale growers.
The Bluelab EC Pen is a handheld professional meter for testing the strength of nutrients you have in your solution to ensure your plants are fed the right amount of minerals and it also tells you the temperature of your nutrient solution in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
The Bluelab EC Pen accurately measures the solution and displays the reading in 0.1 increments on a backlit LCD display, with a range from 0.0 – 10.0 EC. The Pen has a hold function so you can store the reading to view it once you have removed the Pen from the solution and it also has a low battery warning and is fully waterproof.
Ph buffers are used to calibrate ph meters, this needs to be done regularly to ensure you ph meter is reading correctly as failure to do this defeats the whole point of using a ph meter in the first place.
Growth Technology PH buffer 4 and 7 solutions are of a known and fixed PH, which are used to calibrate your PH meter and should be done on a regular basis to ensure ongoing accuracy from the meter.
Pour out a small amount to use for calibration and remember to discard the used solution when finished, do not pour it back into the container as it will contaminate your new solution
. First use PH buffer 7 solution to calibrate your meter to neutral, once this is done we recommend you then use PH buffer 4 to calibrate your meter to this level, this will give you a two point calibration and be far more reliable than just calibrating to one.
