Essentials EC Meter

The Essentials EC Meter will give accurate readings of your nutrient solution EC levels to provide precise concentration when you mix the nutrients with water.

This digital meter compensates for temperature automatically. You dip the probe into the solution and stir, then wait about 20 seconds for the display to provide the level.

This product is ideal for use in hydroponic growing systems as it includes a variety of practical features and benefits, including the following:

  • Manufactured from tough plastic
  • Easy to use and very effective
  • Excellent value-for-money
  • Switches off automatically to preserve battery
  • Totally shock resistant
  • It uses four button-cell batteries
  • Simple calibration function
  • Completely water resistant
  • Auto temperature compensation

How does this digital EC Meter work?

This product measures the strength or concentration of your nutrient solution and is a handy device for you to use as part of your growing and tending hydroponic procedures.

This product is fantastic value for money. It gives you a precise reading of the electrical conductivity in the nutrient solution using its electrodes, displaying this on its LCD panel. With this, you can fine-tune the nutrient solution’s strength, which is critical to your plants’ healthy development.

This product’s electrodes and temperature sensor have a plastic shroud on the bottom, providing protection. It leaves the factory already calibrated, although it’s advisable to recalibrate this every 10 or 12 measurements to preserve its accuracy.

It is shock-resistant and water-resistant but not waterproof, so you should never submerge it. It will switch itself off automatically to conserve battery life if not used for several minutes.

How do I use this digital meter?

This unit is an electrical conductivity meter which will tell you the strength or concentration of your nutrient solution. Hydroponic growers must know the nutrient levels within the solution to ensure healthy plant development and growth.

Base water has an EC reading of zero. Added solids have ions with them, which are necessary for electrical conductivity to occur within the water base. The greater the number of ions within the water, the higher the conductivity. More ions in a set volume of water will mean a higher nutrient content in the solution in terms of the dissolved solids.

By measuring this conductivity, growers can monitor this concentration and modify it when needed – so it can be made stronger or weaker by adding more nutrients or water. It’s crucial if you’re growing different kinds of plants because each plant species needs varying amounts of nutrition. Therefore monitoring the dissolved solids in this way will help ensure the optimum environment for your plants in any given circumstance.

When using any EC meter, you should also account for temperature variations. Warmer or colder temperatures will alter the conductivity readings by a little and should therefore be compensated for by the meter.
