EC Measurement in water or buffer solution
Although SoilQuality has been designed to measure EC of moist soil, it can also measure EC of water, buffer solutions and other liquid solutions, however the following precautions should be followed:
Protective cap should be removed.
During measurement, the moisture level will be saturated at 70%, this is normal
The â€˜Soil Sensing Probeâ€™ should be fully immersed; half immersed â€˜Soil Sensing Probeâ€™ will result in a half reading
Measured EC value should be compared with reference EC value of the water solution or buffer solution given as the current temperature of the liquid measured
The â€˜Soil Sensing Probeâ€™ should be gently cleaned with disinfectant alcohol if EC reading doesnâ€™t match with expected value
