        Is there a certain model you'd recommend Orion?

          If you just need to monitor then:

          Or if you need to control:

          Best price to reliability ratio IMO.

              I don’t have one but from my understanding Pinpoint controllers are nice. Have you considered controller like an AC II or maybe the AC junior. Cost more upfront but maybe easier later on.

              If at first it doesn't fit get a bigger hammer - Beat to fit paint to match

                      I have been using Milwaukee for a few years and have never had a problem with their controllers or monitors. Pinpoint is good as well. I say if you like gadgets get the Aquacontroller

                              I had a really hard time calibrating my milwaukee sms122 contoller/meter model when I recieved it. But I think alot of it has to do with retardedness.

                              But, it took a few re-calibrations and ph solution dips before it would hold 7.0, so I'm kinda crossing my fingers...

                              It might be a good idea to get one of those handheld pinpoint readers as well (I mean, if you decide to go the cheap route)... I mean, you could always calibrate your ph controller to that right? Plus, wouldn't it make it easier to check effluent ph?

                              In fact... I think I'm going to buy one of those...
