What is a pH meter used for?
A pH meter, also known as an acid meter, will allow us to determine the pH of a solution or soil. When asked if the soil or solution we are testing has an alkaline, acidic or neutral reaction, we will be answered by a pH meter. The pH meter is used in many areas, including agriculture, aquariums or beauty salons. Acid meters have many applications, which makes them useful devices for a number of activities.
Application of the meter in garden:
The acidity of the soil contributes significantly to the optimal development and growth of our plants. Different plant species may require different soil pH. We will need a soil pH meter to find out if the soil requires acidification or de-acidification, so that the plant has the right conditions for development. An important function of the pH meter in the garden is to dose fertilizers and determine the pH level of the water we use. Measurement of the pH of the plant will allow us to answer, for example, the question of why the leaves of the plant turned yellow and what preparations will be needed to help it. The pH meter will be useful to check what effect the fertilizers and preparations we use have on our plants, and the immediate result will allow us to react in time.
It is enough to place the meter intended for soil in the ground, and after a few moments we will be able to read its acidity. Common pH meters require a solution to be tested. If You want to determine the pH level of the soil with such a meter, You must dilute the substrate with distilled water. Before using the meter, remember to calibrate it, which is done with the calibration fluids intended for this purpose.
A large selection of pH meters:
There are many manufacturers of gauges on the market that are often inaccurate, so choose a trusted manufacturer of these devices. ADWA (Advanced Digital Water Analysis) is a Hungarian company that has been producing high-class devices for laboratory water analysis since 1998. Equally recognized manufacturers of such devices are Milwaukee and Bluelab, which have been providing high-quality measuring equipment for many years.
A wide range of acid meters:
Our store offers budget and specialized meters. Depending on the client's needs and their budget, we offer equipment in every price range. The choice is wide, ranging from simple gauges to devices that are also used in professional laboratories.
When deciding to buy a pH meter, it is worth considering the purchase of reputable manufacturers such as: ADWA, Milwaukee and Bluelab. If we care about the accuracy of the measurement and a longer period of use, the purchase of measuring devices from these companies will be a good investment.
