NutriHydro Probe Care Solutions

Precision and accuracy are significant when managing pH levels and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) used for hydroponics and irrigation. Maintaining the correct pH level and parts per million (ppm) is vital for maximizing crop health, productivity, and yield. 

pH Meter

When the glass electrode is placed in a solution, hydrogen ions in the test solution interact with other positively charged ions through the glass membrane, influenced by the concentration of hydrogen ions. This exchange of ions at the glass membrane results in the creation of a potential (voltage). The voltage produced by the glass electrode changes according to the concentration of hydrogen ions. The pH meter measures the voltage difference between the glass and reference electrodes [1].

TDS Meter

The working principle of a TDS meter is based on electrical conductivity. Most dissolved ions in water are capable of carrying an electric charge [2]. The TDS meter measures the conductivity of the water which increases as the amount of dissolved solids increases. This measurement is typically expressed in parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/L).

In modern cultivation methods such as hydroponics, aeroponics, and irrigation, meter probes play a role in ensuring optimal levels of pH and ppm (parts per million). It is vital to keep these probes moist and clean to avoid erroneous readings and possible damage to crop health, productivity, and yield. This essential tool is particularly valuable for growers of lettuce, leafy greens, and fruit-bearing crops.

With that, NutriHydro provides innovative solutions for maintaining pH and TDS meters. The Electrode Storage and Cleaning Solution is a carefully designed product necessary for preserving the accuracy and lifespan of pH probes. The probe care solutions are scientifically formulated to ensure the accuracy and longevity of the pH and TDS meters. It prevents the pH probes from drying out which allows for reliable readings and it is also straightforward to use for growers of various crops.

NutriHydro’s electrode storage and cleaning solutions are essential for agriculture. The storage solution helps maintain the accuracy of pH and TDS probes for consistent monitoring and optimal growing conditions. The cleaning solution improves the longevity and precision of pH and TDS meters which is important for managing nutrient levels and maximizing crop health and yield.

Incorrect pH and TDS measurements can harm crops by inhibiting nutrient uptake, leading to deficiencies, jeopardizing plant well-being, and reducing potential yields. By investing in proper probe care, growers can enhance the health, yield, and overall success of their crops in hydroponic, aeroponic, and other modern farming systems.
