If you have a reef aquarium
or if you have an aquarium setup that is stocked with very sensitive fish, you probably have come across the term ORP before. ORP stands for oxidation reduction potential. In layman's terms, ORP is a measure of how clean the water is. It also is a measure of the water's ability to break down contaminants in the water. Normally the range of ORP could be from negative 2000 to positive 2000 and ORP units are measured in millivolts.
It is a key factor in determining how healthy your aquarium water is. It is not very easy to measure. It definitely cannot be measured optically just by looking at your tank. There are specialized probes and equipment that have parts that are sensitive to ORP, which give you a digital or electronic reading.
