Automatic Water Testers? Is there such thing?

  1. Matt Well Known Member Member

    Hey all,

    I was wondering if you could tell me if there is such things as automatic water testers e.g. they test your Ph etc automatically without you having to mix solutions?

    Are they little probes that sit in your tank and read the parameters constantly?

    If yes then where can you get them?

    Thanks,

    Matt:;th

    Above is one more. I do use the Seachem Ammonia Alerts (in the link above) in my tanks and filters. However, I would not recommend giving up the liquid tests. I depend on my liquid tests and the Ammonia Alert as a back up.

    The pH alert, I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to distinguish the colors well enough to get an accurate reading. I haven't used them so I can't say for certain.

    I've also used pH hand held meters. I got tired of replacing the batteries :) Too, they are a bit pricey.

    I have a hand held pH/TDS tester. It's great. Some of the other electronic testers are fairly expensive though.
