The Milwaukee Instruments pH600 is a compact pH tester with a narrow probe for use in small samples or test tubes, and has manual two-point calibration, a single-line LCD screen, a replaceable electrode, and a low power demand. A pH meter is commonly used to measure the pH of substance such as water, food, beer, or wine in laboratory, industrial, and food applications. The single-line LCD screen of this meter shows the current measurement. The meter has manual temperature compensation and manual one-point calibration through a trimmer on the top. Three 1.5V button batteries provide approximately 700 hours of use. The meter also comes with a calibration screwdriver and instructions.
|pH range||0.0 to 14.0|
|pH accuracy||+ or - .1|
|Operating temperature||0 to 50 degrees C (32 to 122 degrees F)|
|Operating relative humidity||95 percent|
|Dimensions||150 x 30 x 24mm/5.9 x 1.2 x 0.9 inches (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
A pH meter, also called a sensor or tester, is a device used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. A pH meter has either a portable or a benchtop body. Many portable meters are handheld devices. Some testers have an internal sensor, and may have a tip and body that fit inside of a container for measurement. A meter is commonly used in many different environments from laboratories to field research and manufacturing facilities. Researchers, manufacturers, and hobbyists use a pH meter in aquaculture, agricultural, wine-making, and water-testing, and for scientific applications. Some pH meters may measure additional parameters such as dissolved oxygen (DO), conductivity (also called electro-conductivity or EC), temperature, total dissolved solids (TDS), salinity, resistivity, or oxygen reduction potential (ORP)/mV.
Milwaukee Instruments manufactures electrochemical instrumentation and solutions for water analysis under the Milwaukee and Martini brands. The company, founded in 1998, is headquartered in Rocky Mount, NC.

I use this unit a few times a year. It gives me repeatable readings with no fuss or bother. I have to calibrate it each time before use, but that doesn't really bother me because I use it so infrequently. Just be aware that if you want accuracy you will also need a ph standard liquid for calibration purposes.
Just don't put the meter in very hot (e.g. boiling) water, the probe will crack like mine did. It still gives correct readings but I'm ordering another of the same model just in case I do something stupid again.
It's true, as per some of the other reviews, that calibrating this device by sticking the supplied screwdriver in a small hole in the back while watching the front is a bit inconvenient, but to be honest one gets the hang of it pretty quickly, and I can't really think of a better design. If the hole was in the front or on the side, then it would be more exposed to water drops, at least in my process which involves taking measurements while stirring. And the simple, manual, analogue interface of turning a potentiometer is hard to improve upon.
The meter arrived dry, but I put some pH 7.0 reference solution in the cap as soon as I opened the package, and as I said it works fine now.
I dropped my second one in salt water and it died. Even after removing the batteries, washing it in distilled water, and drying it, it still wouldn't go back to work for me. So I bought an $80 waterproof Hanna meter (HI98127).Read more ›
Rather than return the meter, I decided to give it a fair shot. I am glad I did. The company from which I purchased it sent me another packet of 7.0 calibration fluid -- and I have since I bought two more packets of calibration fluid just in case I need it. I now test one aquarium with the long trusted liquid test kit - then with the meter to insure the readings I get are accurate. My meter has been spot on accurate now for three weeks (since last calibrated - I have had it for two months). Using this meter also saves a lot of time when acclimating new fish. I acclimate pH as well as temperature. I check the water the fish comes home in and gradually match it mine (if it is different).
Here are some tips from the company that makes this meter:

This product worked well for a short amount of time. It started to give crazy readings after just a few uses.Published 2 months ago by CBrown
Probe dried out by accident and tester became destroyed. Maybe a better design that could tolerate drying of the probe. It becomes impossible to keep monitoring a storage. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
I like this but you have to put a wet piece of cotton every time you close it to keep it working right. I chech the ph 4 and 7 and least one time a month. Read morePublished 4 months ago by justin
