Precise, digital nitrate monitor identifies nitrate problems early to help you prevent old tank syndrome. Two independent LCD ranges, 0-10 ppm for reef use and 10-100 ppm, ideal for fish-only marine system use. Accuracy for either scale is ± 1 ppm after calibration. Resolution for either scale is 1 ppm NO3. Includes probe, display unit and probe protector. Runs on 9V battery, not included. 3" x 5". Use with Nitrate Electrode Calibration Solution, sold separately below.

The Pinpoint Nitrate Monitor is an accurate, affordable digital measurment instrument for saltwater. It has been designed for precision spot testing only. Continuous nitrate monitoring may not be possible in most situations and may require frequent recalibration and probe replacement. Pinpoint Nitrate Monitor is not waterproof and must be operated on a dry surface. Liquid contact with the printed circuit board may cause corrosion and void warranty.
High Range Calibration
Low Range Calibration
Pinpoint Nitrate Monitor has 2 independent ranges:
When the probe is not in use, the tip should be stored in the protective bottle dry - NO fluid added to the bottle. Probe should be kept very clean. Rinse off the probe tip with RO/DI water and blot with a paper towel to dry prior to storage. Do not use any cleaning fluids or chemicals. A properly stored probe may have a life of up to 2-3 years.
For greatest accuracy, all calibration and sample fluids should be at (the same) room temperature. Calibration is recommended before each measurement. For increased stability, allow the probe tip to soak in calibration fluid 5 minutes before initial calibration. Calibration fluids can be reused and should be replaced occasionally. Calibration Fluid replacement will depend on individual technique and be indicated by the inability to calibrate.
