    Hanna sent the new probe (excellent customer service) , and it the tester behaves in a similar fashion. The tech support said it that with my low end model, I should expect a +- .2 variation, and that temperature will impact readings for this low end model. I have decided to go with liquid tests just to ease my 'sanity'. Having the high-end liquid test shows that my tap and tanks are 7.4-7.8 (with one tank that drifts to 8 over time that I'm investigating). Bottom line for me is that at least with the low-end Hanna meter, I'm better off with a mix of drop tests.

    Hello......
    thank for sharing information related to ph meter.........
    i want also share something... pH meter is a handheld device that tests water for its level of acidity versus base or alkalinity.

    An older thread but useful info as I was thinking of buying a cheap PH meter off flebay, think I'll stick to my API liquid kit!

    I to now only use drop testers.
    I have both a digital PH and a digital TDS.
    My problem is if you don't use the PH meter all the time it may dry out and die.
    The TDS meter on the other hand is perfectly good after it drys out.
    I am on my 3rd PH meter and will not replace it.
    I am not in need of that precise a measurement. A reading of 6.2 on the digital meter or a reading of 6.0-6.4 is good enough for me so far. ( color differences at that scale are quite noticeable on the paper card ) 6.8-7.0 are more difficult . So long as mine are in the light green to yellow I am good .At least for now .
    Some breeders will disagree. and I can not contradict there answer as I am new to shrimp breeding.
