Water Quality Monitor for Hydroponics

Hi Everyone,

I am currently attempting to learn more about using an Arduino for monitoring hydroponic water quality. I want to be able to measure pH, eC, and DO. What I have discovered so far is that I will probably use the Arduino Yun with a Whitebox Labs tentacle shield. I also want to be able to have the Arduino send the data over a certain interval to my computer. I don't have much programming experience, so it is a bit daunting. Does anyone in this community have any better advice on how to go about doing this?

Thanks!

Do you intend to use any sensors with the Arduino? If so, what ones are you going to use?

Yes, looking at Atlas Scientific PT1000, EZO DO Circuit, Conductivity Circuit, and pH Circuit.
