I calibrate my pH meter once a day.  Is this overkill? I do it because that's what was done in my old lab, not because I know for sure that's what needs to be done. How often do you all out there calibrate? Thanks,

Hi Anita,
I use a pH meter by Corning.  I make buffer about once or twice a week.  I
pH each time I make it.  I calibrate my pH meter once a month.
