What if I can’t make the drop-off date? Kits must be returned on time otherwise a late penalty of $5/day will be enforced.
Do I need any training? No previous experience is necessary! We will provide you with a field guide, video tutorials, and a quick start guide. Then take your kit out onto the water to try it out and teach your friends and family how to use it too!
How accurate is this kit? This kit has also been compared to professional probes by Carleton University with good results: Read the report.

If a friend/family member has booked the kit right after me, do I still need to return it to the drop off location? Yes! Before each new booking we check the kit to make sure everything is in working order and stocked properly. However, you can always email us to ask. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
