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 ‘Soil Sensing Probe’ should be fully immersed; half immersed ‘Soil Sensing Probe’ 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 ‘Soil Sensing Probe’ should be gently cleaned with disinfectant alcohol if EC reading doesn’t match with expected value
