Proper Usage / Storage

• Immerse the meter in the water/solution up to the maximum immersion level (2″).
• Lightly tap or stir the meter to remove any air bubbles.
– Pockets of air between the electrodes may interfere with the electrical current.
• Wait 10-20 seconds for the reading to stabilize.
– In hot (or ice cold) water, wait 20-30 seconds for the meter to compensate for temperature.
As the water temperature will adjust to room temperature, the reading will change to
accommodate the proper compensation.
• To ensure greater accuracy, turn the meter off and on for each reading.
• Shake any water off the meter after each use.
– This is to remove the droplets of water that may adhere to the surface between the
sensors and the housing around them. These drops may interfere with readings.
• Rinse in de-ionized water or other filtered water after use to ensure proper readings.
• The meter is not waterproof: Do not drop or submerge the unit in water.
• Do not store the unit in high temperature or direct sunlight.
