Impossibly tough, an EC meter built to last a lifetime
The world's favourite nutrient meter! With its super tough, high quality, fully waterproof design, no calibration required, daylight readable blue LED's and no on/off buttons to worry about, the Bluelab Truncheon®Nutrient Meter has proven itself as the world's favourite nutrient meter.
It is essential when growing with a hydroponic solution to KNOW what the strength of the solution is before feeding your plants AND while they are growing. This is easy if you use the Bluelab Truncheon! To take a reading of your solution - simply place the probe head into the solution, wait for it to reach the same temperature of your nutrient. Remove from the solution and place back in to take the reading as indicated by the flashing lights. Rinse the probe after use in fresh water and clean every 30 days to ensure the Truncheon Nutrient Meter remains accurate.
Calibration of the Meter is not required and it's great for stirring your nutrient tank too!

Why measure conductivity?
Optimise nutrient levels
All plants need access to the correct amount of food (nutrients) so that they can grow and flourish. Over- or under-feeding your plants can result in the waste of expensive nutrient resources and plant health issues.
The simplest way to keep track of the amount of nutrients in your solution is to measure conductivity, which refers to the total ionic content (dissolved salts) in a solution. From a scientific perspective, when nutrients are added, this creates the potential for electricity to move through a solution, increasing the electrical conductivity.
By measuring and adjusting nutrient levels, you’ll ensure that your plants are getting the macro- and micro-nutrients they need for superior plant health.

Team up with the Bluelab pH Pen
Cover all the plant health fundamentals
As a grower, your solution’s pH (potential Hydrogen) is the most critical fundamental measurement to track. It plays a crucial role in making nutrients soluble in water so that they can be accessed by your plants.
TheBluelab pH Penis an affordable and compact handheld solution for measuring pH and temperature on the go.
When you combine this pen with Bluelab’s Truncheon Nutrient Meter, you’ll be able to measure conductivity, temperature and pH, which not only enables you to actively manage your nutrient levels but also ensures that your plants have access to the food they need.
