Affordable pH Controller?

Hey plant people!

Just curious to know if anyone might have a line on a cheap pH controller because frankly, I'm tired of tossing in a pinch of baking soda every other day to counter my CO2 and I'm usually pretty broke.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

You can find used ones on the swap and shop here sometimes for as low as 50 bucks.

There is always members on here selling used ones for a decent price but I must say that they are a piece of equipment that isn't really needed even though I use one myself.

what is the point of adding baking soda every few days
the co2 is supposed to be lowering your ph
i can see adding it to water changes if your kh is very low
but how would a controller remedy that
