i buy the HANNA PH/EC/TDS waterproof combo meter and i heve alitlle problem.
well i decide to give anther chance to this meter before i replace it.
but maybe please someone can able to explain me how to use this meter.
and how to get the correct number for the test ?
ph and temp is ok but when i start to understand it , i get confused .
the ppm and ec was to high i think and how should i know what number each week?

I would like to try and help you. Lets deal with one thing at a time. Do you understand the calibration procedure for both ph and ppm?

You have two buttons on your meter. The one on the left is the MODE button and the one on the right is the SET/HOLD button. The procedure to calibrate is the same for ph or ppm. Ph and PPM should be the two values you are concerned with. Turn the meter on with the MODE button. Scroll to PH with the SET/HOLD button. With the tip of the meter submerged in your 7.01 calibration fluid, push and hold the MODE button until it changes to "CAL". Release the MODE button and the meter will begin calibrating. When the display changes to "USE 4.01", push and release the MODE button. The procedure is the same for ppm, except you need to scroll with the SET/HOLD button to ppm, then push and hold the MODE button while the meter is in calibration fluid. I use 1382 PPM calibration fluid. Now try that and get comfortable with it, then we will move on.

Please lets do one thing at a time. Sounds like you have the test fluid(s) for ph. Did you get any test fluid for PPM?

Any 1382 calibration fluid will work. It does not have to be Hanna's. I use Milwaukee test fluid for ppm cause they have it locally.

If you are waiting for a new Hanna 98129, it does not come with any calibration fluid.

My hanna combo meter hi98129 uses 1500ppm calibration solution. When your in ppm hold the left button down until it says CAL and then it will say use 1500 or 1382, mine says 1500 and its my second hanna black. I don't know how to set it for 1382 lol but I have seen the solution sold right beside the 1500ppm solution.

same way you just change the meters ppm conversion to (.50) for 1382. smith do you have your meter conversion at (.70)for 1500? yo quantuman the beta(ec) is 1.9 for the tester. example was 2.1
