Default PH Pen calibration

Please help, when you do calibration on your PH pen, would you use both PH 4 solution and PH 7 solution or...... either one will do?

Thank you very much.

Unless you need very precise calibration to ensure that the pH pen is accurate for a very wide range of pH, just get the pH 7.0 solution.

There are other solutions available but you don't need to worry about those.

It depens on which model of your pH pen, some are 2 points calibration, some r 1 point. In all cases, 7.0ph as a single solution can be used for 2 points and 1 point model for 1 point calibration.

In my experience, try to get those cost in range from $30-$70 is fine, quality & reliability issue, concern.

For used PH pen, u may want to consider my offer here clik the link to see

Default PH Pen Calibration

Hi, bro sorry about making use of ur thread here but since all of u are talking about calibration, I have a question here, that is, when I do calibration of the PH pen to 7 and use it to test my water. After that, when u take out from the water after testing, will the reading go back to 7 again or must I everytime had to do calibration when I want to test water again?

Please advise. Thank
