Renting / Sharing a PAR meter


Calling fellow Ohioians. I am thinking of buying a PAR meter to do some testing on my lights and wanted to see if other people here in Ohio would want to rent it to do testing themselves. This is what I was thinking...

$15.00/week to rent + cost of shipping (roughly $12.00 to you and back to me).

I would ship it out on a Saturday for you to receive on Monday and you would ship it back to me on the following Monday. This would give you a full week plus a weekend to do testing in your tanks.

This meter would stay in Ohio.

Please give me your input and what you think!

This is something I'd probably be interested in.

How much does this cost to but or right? Also where would we find a table that tells us what we have?

Mark - I know who you got that bright idea from This is good... the only thing is I'd set limitations as to who you chose to share the meter with. Remember this is a public forum and there's snakes out there. I wouldn't toss something that expensive just at anybody who raises their hands. Make sure you get a deposit! haha

Though this is very nice of you for damn sure. I take it you guys don't have a plant club in Ohio?

Brad - check out this link . It's Hoppy's thread that's been going around. He has a nice chart in there regarding PAR values.

You renting sharing it might be better to do locally with hobbyists you know personally.
