How water quality testers work
There are two basic categories of meters, those that use a probe placed in the water, and those that test a water sample. Samples can be tested on location or in a laboratory. Water can be tested for temperature, pH, turbidity, dissolved metals, dissolved organics, dissolved oxygen, oxygen reduction potential, alkalinity, conductivity, and many other factors.
