Handcrafted

In the USA

Guaranteed Pristine

Protected with a High Standards Return Policy

Description

This Hydrometer is American made and contains a scale that is far easier to read than any other brand syrup hydrometer. Instead of having number delineation only every 5 points (forcing you to count up or down from these points to determine an actual reading) the Smoky Lake Syrup Hydrometer has EVERY point marked. This Hydrometer is more accurate and more resistant to breakage than the Chinese-made units that you see for sale on the internet. Save money and make awesome maple syrup by choosing a high-quality Hydrometer.

Craftsmanship Warranty

Smoky Lake is proud to partner with the nation’s most prestigious manufacturer of hydrometers. Made in the USA!

In the rare case that there is a craftsmanship issue, we trust you to contact us immediately upon receiving your hydrometer, and before using it. If your hydrometer is damaged during use, that would not be considered a craftsmanship defect.

Details regarding our warranty are available in our Help Center

High Standards Return Policy

Smoky Lake is dedicated to maintaining the highest quality standards for our valued customers. In doing so, we adhere to a High Standards Return Policy (no returns or exchanges on hydrometers).

In other words, these fragile glass instruments go directly from us to you. Every time. They will never endure the stress of unnecessary trips throughout the postal system. They will never spend weeks rolling around in the back of some other customer’s car. They’ll never be secretly used and then land back on our shelves.

In contrast, there may be other maple retailers out there who have lower standards in their return policies. Make no mistake, when those retailers accept a hydrometer return, that instrument will end up back on their shelf, pretending to be “new” to the next customer. So when you work with those companies, you have no way of knowing whether that hydrometer you are getting is truly new or if it may have been previously used and/or rejected by someone else. It’s a Russian roulette of sorts.

We offer you ultimate confidence. Our Hydrometers are 100% pristine. And that’s the way it should be.

    Nice. Thanks.

  3. William E Buschofsky

    I checked the reviews and had the same experience as the first reviewer, there just too delicate, i spent $150 on the Murphy cup and would like to use it, i worked in a laboratory and know how to handle delicate glass instruments, going to try the gold series to see if i have better luck

  4. Rick

      Thank you, Rick!

  5. Jared H

    great scale

  6. Ryan

    I don’t agree with the other review here so I wanted to leave a review of my own. This has been a great hydrometer for me. I was here on this page just to purchase a second one as a back up. I love you Smokey Lakes! Keep up the great work.

  7. Tim S

    The scale is great but the quality of the glass unfortunately is not. The first unit I received was damaged (showed some flaws in the glass and had moisture inside) – SM sent out a replacement that lasted all of 2 weeks. In comparison my China made ‘Tap My Trees’ Hydrometer is still going strong after +6 years. Disappointing!

    I would not recommend this version. Maybe the Gold Series with the added heat treatment is the way to go? Big fan of what SM is doing and loving their Murphy cup but would not waste a dollar on this Hydrometer…
