      Class act

      My 3rd digital ph tester, first one I've liked. Kit is impressive and includes everything you need to get started. Like the little things they thought of to make everything easier, such as that the calibration is with liquid not powder, laminated instruction sheet, etc. The unit itself has much more feedback than other units I've used, such as a little smiley face when the reading has stabilized etc. Only con is the feedback icons on the LCD display are tiny, can't make them out without my reading glasses. Ph readout itself is large enough however. All in all a class act, highly recommend.

      A great ph tester with an affordable price.

      I recently purchased an alkaline water ionizer and realized that I had to do some measurements. After long research I decided on the Apera ph60 model. When the Ph60 came to me, I understood again that I made the right decision. Everything you need is in its special storage box. The user manual has been prepared to be easy to understand. Using the Ph60 is also very easy. I will soon buy one orp probe for ph60 and I will be able to do the ph and orp measurements I need with a single device. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to buy a ph tester.

      My kit has the 10.01ph calibration solution

      I would like to have seen ALL the bottles of solutions arranged in the same vertical manner as the PH60 pen, a partial turn click-lock for the storage solution pen cap. The case could be improved with pin hinges and clasps. On the positive side, the PH60 has a very impressive balance and feel, the 'Smiley Face" gives a good reassurance of a stable reading, The separate 'mother solution' and 'test solution vial' bottles is a great arrangement for 'in the field' calibrations. Overall, I give the PH60 a 4.5/5

      Perfect for my pool

      This PH tester is extremely accurate and has helped me keep my pool water PH level balanced. It is so much easier to read and precise than the color bars on the drops test kit I have been using.s The calibration and storage solutions are good starter sets but I would recommend purchasing additional larger bottles as you will need them in short order. Wish I had bought this tester sooner.

      Takes forever to get an accurate reading

      Just as slow as the cheap <$20 pH pens you see everywhere. I thought that I'd get better readings using this. Nope. After the 3 point calibration, this thing will take a good five minutes to give a reading while turning off in the process. Not happy about this purchase and would not recommend it.

      Great pen for price point.

      its a good pen epically with the price point. It comes with a caring case which some of the more expensive ones don't. I actually got this one because of my bad experience with bluelab.

      Waste of my time and money

      First one didn’t work couldn’t calibrate it ordered a replacement it was slow at best had a different value every time I tested/calibrate it. I had a ph 20 was a reliable tester for 2 years about as much as can expect from a ph tester I liked it.

      Love it. The calibration process was confusing to me at first.. as was using it too, lol. But, once I got past my own ignorance, this pH tester is amazing. I use it for my pool to determine both pH and Total Alkalinity so I don't have to rely on my colorblindness when doing reagent testing. Highly recommended.

      Works as labeled

      Works out of the box held it's first calibration out of the box for almost a full month
