Inline PH probe mounting w/ Local Parts

I came up with an interesting and cheap solution for inline PH sensor mounting. I found this plastic part at my local home depot. It's meant for plastic tubing. Luckily the standard size for a PH probe is 1/2" diameter making this plastic fitting ideal for holding this type of sensor. The PH probe fits snugly in place and is completely water tight. It also allows for easy removal.

It connects to an arduino controller with relay board, LCD screen and home made interface boards. I have more pictures in my tank journals.

Excellent! I believe I messaged you before asking for the BOM for your project too
