GroLine Nutrient EC/TDS (ppm) Tester (Model HI98330)

Ideal for hydroponics and agriculture applications, the HI98330 GroLine® Nutrient Tester accurately measures the electrical conductivity (EC) in mS/cm and the total dissolved solids (TDS) conversion in parts per million (ppm) of the nutrients in water.

Suitable for plants that need a higher EC, the tester features an extended range up to 6.0 mS/ cm (EC), 3000 ppm (500 ppm scale), and 4200 ppm (700 ppm scale).

The IP67 waterproof rated and floating casing houses the EC graphite electrodes and temperature sensor, and is suitable for stirring and testing simultaneously.

  • IP67 waterproof and floating design
  • No user calibration needed
  • Auto-on when placed in liquid
  • Auto-off 30 seconds after stable measurement
  • Rugged and doubles as a stirring stick Low battery indicator
  • Readings displayed by 24 brightly lit LED lights
  • Conductivity scales and operational instructions printed on the tester body
  • Easy to clean (detachable crown-shaped cap)

Primary Applications:

Agriculture, hydroponics, irrigation water

Converting from old NZ Hydroponics International to Groline tester

My 25 year old NZ Hydroponics International nutrient tester started to get somewhat not reliable.
I purchased the Hanna Groline nutrient tester as replacement.
I'm still attempting to get used to the calibration of the Hanna tester.
I compare the readings of my OLD nutrient tester with my New Hanna tester. My hope is that I can find the new tester EC as compared with my old tester CF to be consistent. So far it feels like I'm getting some consistent readings. If my comparisons and my documentation work out, I think the Hanna tester will work out for me. The Truncheon type of testers have been my friend for over 25 years. I have never calibrated or maintained them other than washing after use and changing batteries about every 5 years or so.
