How to protect your ICO sensors during winter storage ?

ICO has three removable sensors: pH, ORP and conductivity. They analyse the water quality of your pool or spa once an hour. It is important to take care of your sensors to keep them working at their best: handling them carefully and calibrating them regularly is the best way to keep them intact. Protecting your ICO sensors during winter storage is also important, and we explain how to do this.
