Vitalink pH Buffer 4

Vitalink pH Buffer 4 is a calibration fluid designed for growers who understand the importance of accuracy in producing the best yields possible.

Maintaining a well-calibrated pH meter is essential for accurate readings and keeping your nutrient solution within the pH range. This product by Vitalink provides the solution for this problem and is an ideal way to correctly and accurately calibrate your pH meter. It has several features and attributes, including the following:

  • It works with any type and brand of pH meter
  • It acts as a very stable and reliable pH calibration fluid
  • To be used regularly to keep your pH meter precisely calibrated
  • Crucial to ensure accurate readings at all times

How Does it Work?

Your crop quality is only as good as the products and the accuracy of the equipment used to measure them.

The accuracy of your pH meter(s) will need to be maintained by regularly checking them and ensuring that the readings you take relating to the acidity in your nutrient solution are always accurate.

Buffer 4 is an additive solution that will do this for you. It has a very stable pH value for calibrating your pH meter(s). The product also ensures that your meter supplies reliable data across a broad spectrum of pH levels.

How to Use?

The pH levels of your nutrient solution significantly affect the nutrients within it. A pH level that is either too high or too low may cause imbalances in essential nutrients and nutrient groups within your solution, which are necessary for the healthy development of your plants, which may lead to deficiencies or worse.

An unsuitable pH level could also damage the beneficial bacteria within your system or the substrate. These friendly bacteria are so often relied upon by growers who prefer to use organic or natural methods, as people are increasingly doing, so anything harmful to these helpful microorganisms may have a lasting and damaging effect on the outcome and quality of your crop.

It’s inevitable that your pH meter, trusty thought it is, will not last forever. The functioning and behaviour of the pH meter itself, or the pH electrode inside it, will change over time due to the machine’s ageing, and this is because the more the meter’s electrode works, the more its coating will degrade. So to make sure that it works correctly, you should regularly calibrate your meter.

If you use your pH meter daily, you should calibrate it once a week at the very least. You should do this more often if your usage is more frequent than this. To calibrate your meter, use pH Buffer 4.

There is also a companion product called Vitalink Buffer 7 available; the manufacturers advise that using both of these products as buffer solutions will ensure that your calibrations, and therefore your readings, are more accurate.

Your nutrient solution’s temperature will also affect its pH level. The Essentials pH Meter has a handy feature that automatically compensates for temperature. When calibrating your meter, your pH meter and the fluid used for calibration must be at the same temperature. To ensure they are, you should have them both in the same room for several hours before you start performing the calibration.
