REOTEMP Garden and Compost Moisture Meter(15 inch stem)


How Wet’s Your Soil?

The REOTEMP Garden and Compost Moisture Meter is a heavy-duty moisture meter used by gardeners, composters, farmers, and nurseries to get a relative moisture level reading. The moisture meter’s unique calibration feature allows it to be used in a variety of applications including compost, gardening and soil moisture testing. Calibration allows for adjustment of the meter to the specific moisture needs of different plants and applications when compared to a non-adjustable meter.

The REOTEMP Moisture Meter measures the moisture content of your soil or compost pile by means of a sensor at the bottom of the probe. While composting or gardening you often may wonder: How wet’s your soil? Now you will know and be able to more efficiently compost, garden or simply know if your plants need more water. The 0 to 10 scale of the MM15 indicates a relative “wetter” or “dryer”. Note: the probe does not display a percent moisture. The moisture meter measures moisture only at the tip of the probe. Calibration instructions are conveniently printed on the side of the meter head and included on the back of the box. The REOTEMP moisture meter uses 1 AAA battery. Please note that because the probe uses electrical conductivity, the presence of salt can affect readings by making your soil more or less conductive. Therefore, the REOTEMP moisture meter is not recommended for situations where salt content varies drastically between testing samples.
