    I use a Blue Lab Ph pen. With any of them you will need 7.0 Ph calibration solution, 4.01 calibration solution, and KCI storage solution. I have been using the Blue Lab for well over a year and it is still calibrated dead on after only one calibration. I have check it against a Ph drop test occasionally but the calibration check has never went away. Keep it clean and if it dries it dies! You need to keep some of the KCI storage solution in the cap that covers the probe and replace it between uses or at least once a week. Too high of an instrument to let ruin.

      You need to double check how and at what level the pen is calibrated at. I bought one that auto calibrates at odd numbers so I couldnt use the 4.01 & 7.0 PH solution. I sent that one back

    just me has the best deal with that, but i use one of those cheap yellow pens for like two buck. they are calibratable and all you need to do is rinse and let dry. recommended you use distilled water. most of these come with calibration solutions.

      I use them to and buy a extra just in case. They seem to hold the calibration fine.

    i use drops cause theyre always accurate. I also use pH perfect nutrients which helps.  if youre gonna get a meter do like justme and get a decent you can rely on. Tons of shitty ones on the market. little point in using a meter if it is not accurate

     I use a Hanna ph checker. About 30-35 bucks. First one lasted me about 8 years.
