This Faithfull pH Meter is easy-to-use and an essential instrument for both the professional and keen gardening enthusiast, providing a quick no fuss method of measuring the pH (acidity and alkalinity) value of soil.
Knowing the pH value is very important and directly influences the health of plants. Using this meter to provide an accurate reading will allow the pH level to be adjusted accordingly to best suit the plants being grown prior to planting. The meter can also be used to help identify the best growing environment and area for growing outdoor plants, shrubs, vegetables and trees and for improving and modifying soil in gardens.
Features: Analogue needle Acid-Alkaline indicator. Accurate pH soil reading in 60 seconds. Ideal for fruit and vegetables. No batteries required.
To change soil pH: A .To increase the pH value, lime should be added. Lime is a compound of calcium or calcium and magnesium. Applied in the form of ground agricultural limestone, burnt lime or hydrated lime for the quickest result. B. To decrease the pH value use either aluminium sulphate or sulphur. Aluminium sulphate is the quickest acting as it will increase the acidity as soon as it dissolves into the soil. Quantities of additives will vary depending on the type of soil. Consult a gardening book or professional gardener if further advice is needed.

What our customers say
What a fantastic family run business. They have everything you could want in the DIY and home improvement line including knowledgeable advice. I enjoy my trips there, knowing I’ll get what I want accompanied by good value. If all shops were like this the high street would be booming.
This is a little gem - anything that you might need - they will probably have it. Also I found most of the items to be reasonably priced and decent quality.
This place is the original Aladdin's cave - a huge range, everything you ever need for the house and home, with friendly and knowledgeable staff who can't do enough to help. It's a pleasure to shop there, and that comes from someone who really dislikes shopping!
Since 1936 we have carefully hand selected our range to cover all your household needs. Serving generations, we are still fully independent and family owned - meaning you can rely on us to offer great prices and great service.
