A great gauge for Hydroponics
Posted by D on 2nd Oct 2015
Seems they wanted a separate review of the EasyGroHydro 5" water gauge: The materials in the gauge are very superior to other Hydroponic sets I've used. The plastic remains clean, clear, does not cloud over in direct sunlight over the 2 years I've had them so far. Anyway, even if it ever did... the bright red ball on top of the floating gauge meter makes certain I'll never mistake the water level or miss it if its running dry. All in all a great device that should provide great service and notice of water levels in the pots.
I put the little gauge in the back behind the plant stems so as to keep a neat appearance, but I've seen others do it in front for visibility when the water/fertilizer mixture runs low---so you can see it. The EasyGroHydro Pots are very uniform so there is no one forward side (as in so many others I've looked at for my soil plants in the store) so rotate them around so you can choose which way fits your lifestyle and appearance.
Only negative is the photo of the gauge is not showing its best angle (the round side might have compressed the view)---the ball and stick are thicker on the 5" ones (that might have been one of the smaller sized ones as they are thinner (but of same quality) for smaller pots like 3" ones I got).
