-When the electrode has a refillable reference chamber, make sure this chamber is always completely filled with the reference electrolyte solution (3…4 M KCl, article code B520 or B020). An electrode that has been stored dry must be immersed for at least ten hours in the reference electrolyte solution. During short interruptions (e.g. storage) the electrode should be immersed in the electrolyte solution. In doing this it is always kept ready for use. When the interruption is longer than a month, use a storage bottle filled with the reference electrolyte solution and place it on the electrode tip in order to protect the glass bulb. +When the electrode has a refillable reference chamber, make sure this chamber is always completely filled with the reference electrolyte solution (3…4 M KCl, article code B520 or B020).

 The following procedure will result in removal of many common contaminants from the platinum ORP electrode. Fouling of the electrode can, however, be deployment-specific,​ and some contaminants from polluted water may not be dissolved by this method. The use of other solvents and reagents may be possible, but they must be selected carefully so as not to damage the reference electrode or combination sensors. ​ The following procedure will result in removal of many common contaminants from the platinum ORP electrode.
