Dissolved Oxygen Meters can measure the level of dissolved oxygen in the water. Less amount of oxygen inflicts danger to life. On the other hand, an excess of dissolved oxygen (DO) may harm the aquatic life.

“Great price for a DO meter that reads up to 45ppm DO. One issue, it seems to need to be calibrated with each use. However, calibration is fast and straightforward, so it’s not a big deal as long as you remember to do it each time. It takes about 15 seconds to calibrate. We have bought a lot of instruments made by Hanna and have always been happy with price and quality. Gaia Water Ltd.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
