What is temperature testing

Temperature testing is the process of measuring temperature levels in water. Temperature is a key factor in water chemistry. Temperature affects the dissolved oxygen levels in water, the rate of photosynthesis, metabolic rates of organisms, etc. Aquatic organisms depend on particular temperature ranges for their health.

Aquaread Water Temperature Sensor

Temperature measurement is vital in water quality because it can affect the measurement of different parameters. We measure temperature in order to be able to perform various compensations within our complex calculations and of course to record the waters actual temperature.

Our water temperature sensor is located behind the electrical conductivity sensor on all of our Aquaprobes and Aquasondes and Leveline-CTD products.

Our temperature sensors are fitted pre calibrated so you never have to worry about calibration of this sensor. It is located embedded in the DO/EC sensor directly behind the electrical conductivity electrodes


Key Features

  • Built into our conductivity sensor.
  • Measurement range of -5 - +50 Degrees C.
  • Accurate to +/-0.5 degrees C.

Our temperature sensor comes as standard on many of our probes, below are some examples. To see all of the probes that feature temperature please visit the Products section.



Portable, GPS AquaPlus Optical DO/EC system



Advanced portable multi-parameter Aquaprobe.


LeveLine CTD

Adds conductivity and salinity measurements

Always Included

The conductivity sensor is included on every Aquaprobe and Aquasonde, it is also included in the AquaPlus optical dissolved oxygen sensor and our Leveline-CTD water level and conductivity logger. Its design is simple and robust and the sensor itself requires little maintenance to keep it operational.
