just needs care Review by Lefse57
Rating
I have two: one needed a touch of solder for a loose connection, the other was fine. While the pH readings dip when a new load is applied to a shared circuit, the readings quickly return to normal. The salinity monitor is not affected at all. One outlet supplies about 10 items with no problems in accuracy. (I wouldn't share it with a wavemaker where load changes were frequent though.) Run your pH cable away from other power cords. I think it's cheaper and better for the environment than replacing 9V batteries. (Posted on 3/18/11)

Ph monitor :( Review by Max
Rating
Stick with the chemicals and color charts! I've had to return two as the readings were far from accurate (readings everywhere) Calibrating isn't fun and if successful, doubtful it will hold. (Posted on 6/10/09)

Throws off readings Review by RICHARD
Rating
When I connected my pH monitor to this instead of the 9V, it reads a different pH. I took a reading in the tank and it read 7.95, but then I took a sample out into a cup and it read 8.12! I put the 9V back into the meter and it reads 8.12 both in the tank and out. So, as an engineer, I figured it had to do with a grounding problem in my tank. However, I did the same experiment in a bucket. I put a small pump in the bucket and the reading dropped by 0.07. I even added a grounding strap to the bucket water, no change. So, it's a ground loop problem in the meter. You can't run the meter off the AC adapter plugged into the same outlet. I did not try to run an extension cord across the house from a different circuit, but that wouldn't be a long term solution anyway. (Posted on 1/4/09)

AC Adapter Kit Review by ROBERT BURNS
Rating
I own AC Adapter Kit for each of my pinpoint meters. They work fine and are a real convenience. I only wish there was a AC Adapter for all the pinpoint meters,especially the wireless temperture controler. Another way American Marine can improve their already cost-effective products.

Love It Review by Scott

Got it, calibrated it. It works! Great for watching the PH change over time. This will save me money in the long run considering my last PH disaster! (Posted on 9/20/07)

Not a good idea. . . Review by CHUCK
Rating
I love my pinpoint PH monitor. . . but wanted to avoid periodic replacement of the 9 volt batteries that powered it. So I ordered one of these adapters. . . and it almost destroyed the monitor. An electrically-inclined friend measured 11+ volts coming through the adapter. . . TWO successive replacement/purchases yielded similar negative results. I'd avoid this one. (Posted on 7/13/07)
