Handy for direct pH testing of soils and pH soil solutions
The non-refillable Bluelab Soil pH Probe is used to test the pH levels of soils, substrates or media of cropping, pasture, turf culture, containerized plants, home gardens, orchards, tree farms, greenhouses, propagation culture… anywhere that the soils' pH requires testing.
The Bluelab Soil pH Probe can be connected to the Bluelab Soil pH Meter, as well as the Bluelab pH Meter and Bluelab Combo Meter.

Bluelab Soil pH Probe Questions & Answers
Why do I need to use KCl vs tap water or pure water to hydrate and/or store my pH pen or probe in?
Bluelab pH Probe KCl Storage Solution contains the same mix as the KCl reference found in Bluelab pH probes or pens. When you hydrate or store the pH probe/pen in KCl storage solution, you’re re-vitalising the KCl reference solution inside the pH probe.
If you use tap water to hydrate or store the pH probe/pen, it can change or weaken the reference inside the probe. Simply put, tap water is not as effective as KCl.
De-ionized, RO (Reverse Osmosis), or Distilled water should NEVER be used to store or hydrate the pH probe or pen. Pure water changes the chemistry in the reference, causing the pH probe/pen to die.
Why do we need to clean the probes on Bluelab instruments?
A clean probe is an accurate probe!
Cleaning is the most important piece of maintenance required on any Bluelab instrument. The probe comes into contact with the solution and relay the reading back to the instrument for it to be displayed. The probe surface is susceptible to being contaminated or being covered in a greasy film that inhibits an exact reading. There are no shortcuts to cleaning the probes. It is already a very simple procedure and it will also ensure your instrument measures it right every time.
