The REOTEMP Backyard Moisture Meter (MM17) measures the moisture content of your soil or compost pile by means of a sensor at the bottom of the probe. While composting or gardening you often may wonder: How wet’s your soil?™ Now you will know and be able to more efficiently compost, garden or simply know if your plants need more water. The 0 to 10 scale of the MM17 indicates a relative “wetter” or “dryer”. Note: the probe will not display a percent moisture. The probe is sensitive only at the tip. Calibration instructions are conveniently printed on the side of the meter head and included on the back of the box. The MM17 has a 1-year limited warranty.

A NOTE ON SALT CONTENT

The meter reads “wetness” by measuring electrical conductivity, which is sensitive to salt content. If the salt content of your compost varies between testing locations, it could result in inconsistent readings. The meter is intended to give you a good idea of whether or not the center of your pile is too dry or too wet without having to dig deep into the pile for a “squeeze test”.

Short lifespan

Bought 20" Reotemp moisture meter in May 2018. Worked great. Treated it with TLC the entire season. In Sept 2018 removed battery, cleaned probe, safely stored it in original packaging in heated garage.

May 27 2019 installed fresh alkaline battery, turned calibration screw to the far right, then dipped probe tip in glass of water. Was supposed to register 10 on the meter. Only registered 8. Installed a new lithium battery. Same result. Complained to REOTEMP customer service. They totally ignored me.

This device, used very carefully and kept clean and dry between every use and stored properly over winter, should last more than four months.

It works nicely but the 1-year REOTEMP guarantee is worthless. So let the buyer be aware.
