Some reptile retail stores will test them. Best to get a new one if you dont have a place local that will. The Serpentarium does. Store in California central valley and bay area.

I bought a solarmeter 6.5. Pricey yes but I think it is totally worth it! I even use mine on outside days to just double check that I’m not blasting him with too much UVI.

You can either spend $200 plus on a meter or you can follow the recommended replacement schedule of the manufacturer of the lamp you’re using. Depending on the lighting type you’re using it may be worthwhile to get the meter, but in most cases you’re probably better off just replacing the lamp every 12 months or whatever the recommendation is...

Also, make sure you supplement D3 and you really won’t have much to worry about.
