The tester and the moniter are two different things. The tester is simply a electronic tester and they are usually around $60. You can use them every time you would normally chemically test your tanks pH - just a lot more accurate than a chemical test. The monitor on the other hand has a probe that is generally left in the tank and it monitors fluctuations in pH constantly.

Here is a link to one of the pH testers put out by HACH;
