Recently decided to get an apex and I just setup the probes yesterday, calibrated the pH and salinity ones and just dropped the ORP and temp ones straight in,
the ORP readings were at 800 slowly dropped to 400 and stayed there for a while and than quite literally dropped to 0 and stayed there forever, tried reconnecting the probe and that cycle just repeats every time I do so.
now I know that ORP is not an important measurement really but having this wacky probe is really triggering me :rolleyes:
Any suggestions on what I should do?

Mine doing weird stuff to. Mine drops at the same time almost everyday. And then slowly climbs back up. I have never checked it against a calibration solution. I just kinda monitor it. Mine is from 230-330 but at like at 8 am it just plumits. Nothing turns off or comes on at that time. It's just soooo weird, also my salt is not that low I have some kind of electrical interference with my uv sterilizer it drops to 30 from 35 once uv is on
