does anyone use a good PH Meter that can measure both soil (for substrate and gardening) as well as Kombucha?  I'm on my 2nd return to amazon of cheap PH Meters and just can't bring myself to drop $100 for a digital meter, though it would be nice

 

HELP!!!

I have had acceptable results so far, from my cheapo (<$20), amazon purchased, pen style meter.

What's been the issue with yours?

This MacDoDo 4in1 didn't read anything about 7: https://www.amazon.c...duct/B01EQV94U0

 

this 3in1 isn't sensitive enough, didn't really move pH reading even after 20 mins, and is hard to read: https://www.amazon.c...duct/B01EHU3QMM

 

I have 10 year old extech ph110 digital meter but the electrode isn't working anymore, I'm looking at $60+ to replace it 

 

I'm thinking I might just have to, just to be able to do both liquid reading like Kombucha and also very fine soil readings as well

The one I use is for liquid, so for soil I have to measure run off.

This is the one I use.
