Introducing Milwaukee Instruments
Single Measurement – Portable Meters
MW 100 and MW 101 pH Meters
About pH: The pH value of a solution is a measure of its acidity or alkalinity. A basic, neutral solution measures 7 on the pH scale. As a solution gets more acidic, the pH value will decrease. As the solution becomes less acidic, or more alkaline, the value will increase. The pH scale ranges from 0 pH (very acid) to 14 pH (highly alkaline). Pure water has a pH of 7, indicating that it is neither acidic nor alkaline, but neutral. To learn more about pH requirements for aquaponics, click over to our .

The above statement is a quote from our System Engineer and Aquaonics Expert, Oliver Duffy, who because he's a retired Aerospace Engineer knows all about taking measurements and being precise. In AP Sysems measuring your Water Quality is the most important because poor Water Quality means dead Fish and dead Fish means dead Plants. There are lots of other things that can also be measured like your Dissolved Oxygen (DO) Levels and your Light (LUX) if you're using LED's. That's why we recommend Milwaukee Instruments.
Measuring things is so important, every STEM & Family PLUG & GROW™ Food Growing System we sell includes complete with a Mobile AP! This Software makes measuring and tracking your Water Quality a snap, and we can see what's happening, too.
