Product Description

Compost Thermometer (Backyard) -  50.5 cm (20 inches) stem length, deg Celcius + compost stage dial.

The high quality Backyard Compost Thermometer is ideal for creating biologically active compost. This thermometer is designed for monitoring the core temperatures of a backyard sized compost heap or bin. The thermometer comes with composting instructions in the packaging.  They are calibrated in degrees Celcius for the Australian market, please contact us if you need Farenheit.

When making compost it is very important to know the compost's temperature. A high quality compost thermometer from Groundgrocer.com will enable you to monitor the core temperature of your compost pile accurately and easily.

The temperature reading will tell you when to add water to your compost, when to turn the pile and when it is mature and ready to use. Because heat is an essential element in the production of good quality compost, you want to ensure you have a very accurate compost thermometer to monitor the enitre production process.

If the compost is too hot, it will destroy beneficial microorganisms that are essential to the proper conversion of your compost materials into humus. If the compost temperature is too cold microbial activity will be reduced and weed seeds and any pathogens are not destroyed. In such cases compost can take a very long time to mature. So be sure! Purchase high quality compost thermometer equipment and accessories all right here at Groundgrocer. We only supply the highest quality compost thermometer's available on the market.


Stem:20" (50.5 cm) long, 1/4" (6.4 mm) diameter, pointed tip for easy insertion.

Dial Size:

Easy-to-read 1 1/2 (4 cm) diameter.

Dial Face:

Polycarbonate clear lens. The dial face is hermetically sealed, so it will not fog.

All welded stainless steel design. Whilst this product can be left inside the compost pile we recommend it be removed and stored inside. It can withstand the chemical and biological weathering of the compost pile.  Please consider the professional models for use in harsh conditions.

  1. Hot property 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2018

    My Reotemp backyard compost thermometer has been giving me readings of up to 65 degrees Celsius since I commenced using it.
    The needle doesn't oscillate and I'm very pleased with the instrument thus far. Recommended.

    This is a great product and has so far been completely reliable. The dial is clear and easy to read and the unit is well made. We are composting humanure so a good thermometer gives us the confidence that the process is working well and the compost produced at the end of the process is safe.
