Customer Reviews for Kelway Meter Acidity Tester

5 Stars

Working great

wrote ():

Bought to confirm that ph was high around blueberries (which it was). Checked different areas around yard and garden and got different readings (which it should). Bought a couple of the cheap ones and every reading was the same 7.0. I think this tester will do very well for spot checking. Still nothing beats a soil test.
