monitoring probes?

i have been looking at different type of probes to check water chemistry. i have noticed that there are a number of different monitors (pH, ORP, salinity, etc).

questions...

1) what is an ORP probe?
2) are there any monitoring modules out there that can do all the water chemistry tests in one unit? for instance, is there a single unit that can do pH, ORP, salinity, ammonia, nitrates, calcium, etc?
3) can i get recommendations on makes and modules of monitoring units?

It measures the organics and bacteria living in the water. The higher the ORP reading, the more sterile the water.

I do not honestly think there is an "all in one" product but >>this<< should get you started.

Never looked into it so no clue really. Anyone else?

Cheers
