If you can come up another 20, this will have you set for good. Best bang for the buck.


Yea it’s always good to buy better I had to buy two to find out but I got a new set coming because they didn’t work or I broke it :face_with_raised_eyebrow::face_with_monocle: you can get it cheaper but your choice I say go with that one

I would go with the apera . I purchased a couple Amazon cheapies that no longer work because I dropped them in water. Lastly I went with apera…it’s waterproof and i love it. Worth the money for sure.


I have apera too. Worth extra $20 in my opinion.


The glass ball on the end of every meter i have owned has broken, no matter how much i spent for the meter. I burned thru so many expensive meters that i gave up now i use the cheapest ones; paid $26 for 4 cheap ph meters that match just fine to the test solution

@bryan the Apera PH 60 has replaceable probes.

I second the Apera PH20.

I bought the apera ph60 after breaking the bulb in my ph20. Both are great meters.

I really like my Apera PH20 especially if you are on a tight budget

This is the one. A lot of us bought the cheap ones on amazon only to go to test the ph & nada. These babies are great

I got lucky with my cheapo. I was starting to not trust it due to it being cheap but was surprised at its accuracy. I was having to calibrate every week which was monotonous.


This one is a little more than $30, but it says you can use it constantly and it’s a 6 in 1 device. Lot bang for $95.

I think you could get the cheapest meter but store it in the correct solution 3M KCl
