Default Ph Strips...what does pink/purple mean?

I have no scale for purple??

The top strip is a fresh batch of Starsan, the bottom and other is from what was in a bottle for about 4-6 weeks.


Anyone have a good link on a liquid ph meter that I could purchase? Its annoying to me trying to get those little strips out of the bottle. My hand always seems to be wet too when I want to check it!

Instead of starting another post, can I test my water with my Aquarium test kit? I don't see why not but maybe the scales might be different.

There are several links online. However, you need a handy ph strip. Try Microessential labs.
