Checktemp Pocket Thermometer
Checktemp Pocket Thermometer is Great!
I recently purchased a new Checktemp Pocket Thermometer because I accidentally got the casing on my previous thermometer wet and it quit on me. It is now working again, after putting it in rice for a day or so (I still had to wait a couple more days before it started working again), but it is working fine now. It's nice to have a second one as a back-up if I need it,or to keep one in the kitchen where I fill my water buckets. After I got the new one I checked it comared to the old one, and they were only off by 0.1 degrees. Docters Foster and Smith is the only place I have found this item, which is surprizing since it is so indespensible, especially if you have a lot of aquariums ( I only have a 10 gallon quarantine tank and a 55 gallon display tank, and none of the other thermometers I have ever had agree on the temperature--even in the same tank!).

Love this thermometer!
I am extremely pleased with this product. It is most useful when refilling a tank after a water change. Whether you are filling buckets or using a hose, just stick the tip of this thermometer in the bucket or the stream of water and you get an instant reading. Seems to be quite accurate too. No more waiting for a wired digital probe to register the water temp. Because this product displays the temperature instantaneously, you can quickly adjust the water temp from the tap. Very happy with this product.

Does its job
Thermometer reads 2 deg higher than the thermometers in the tanks. Having a calibration tag with the checktemp gives me confidence that the data I have for the tanks is accurate.
