It caters to the needs of different garden sizes and is compatible with a wide variety of pH meters, making it a versatile and valuable addition to any gardener's toolkit.

Hygen pH Buffer 7 is important as the upper calibration point in the "two point" calibration of electronic meters. Regularly calibrate your pH meter with both pH Buffer 4 and pH Buffer 7 calibration solutions to ensure that your meter is operating with precision and accuracy between pH 4 and 7.


How often should I calibrate my pH meter with Hygen pH 7 Buffer solution?

It's recommended to calibrate your pH meter regularly, usually once a month is sufficient. However, if you're making frequent or critical measurements, calibrating it more often may be necessary.

Can I reuse the Hygen pH 7 Buffer solution for multiple calibrations?

It's best to use fresh solution each time you calibrate your pH meter to ensure accurate readings. Pour just enough solution needed for calibration into a clean container and discard the used solution afterwards.

Is there a shelf life for the Hygen pH 7 Buffer solution?

Yes, there is usually an expiration date printed on the label of the bottle. It is important to use the solution within the specified time frame to ensure accurate calibration results.

What should I do if I notice unusual readings on my pH meter after calibration?

If you receive unusual readings after calibration, ensure your pH meter is properly cleaned and sanitized. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the probe or consult the pH meter manual for additional troubleshooting steps.

Can I use Hygen pH 7 Buffer solution for calibrating other types of meters?

This solution is specifically designed for calibrating pH meters at pH 7.0. Thus, it may not be suitable for calibrating other types of meters. Always refer to your instrument's manual for information on appropriate calibration solutions.

Does the ideal pH for nutrient uptake vary between different types of plants?

Yes, different plants have unique nutrient requirements, which means the ideal pH for nutrient uptake varies from plant to plant. Regularly monitoring and adjusting the pH of your nutrient solution is essential for optimal plant growth.
