Product Description

Reotemp Compost Thermometer - Super Duty 3/8" Fast Response

The Reotemp Fast Response Windrow Thermometer has all of the assets of the Heavy-Duty Thermometer, however it is stronger and quicker. The extra sensitive tip gives an accurate temperature reading 20%-25%  faster than rgw Heavy-Duty Probe. The stem is now reinforced with 3/8" stainless steel, providing you with a robust, long lasting and durable instrument, one that will do the job time and again.

The bottom line is that this instrument will save you time and money.

  • More sturdy 3/8" diameter stem for extra durability
  • Easy-to-read 3" diameter dial
  • Very accurate (+1% of scale)
  • Celcius scale

The Reotemp Heavy Duty Fast Response Windrow Thermometer is ideally suited for monitoring the core temperatures of large compost bins, heaps or windrows. The heavy duty construction means this thermometer will stand the test of time. It measures compost temperature 50% faster than the regular Heavy-duty probe.

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.

The Fast Response model will read temperatures of your heaps 20% faster than our Standard Heavy Duty model.



Selection of 61cm (24 inch), 91cm (36 inch), 122cm (48 inch), 153cm (60 inch) & 183cm (72 inch) , sturdy 3/8" (9.5 mm) diameter for extra durability, and a pointed 1/4" (6.3 mm) stainless steel tip for quick response.


+/- 1% full scale. Temperature range is minus 20 to 95 degrees Celcius.

Dial Size:

3" (7.6 cm) diameter. The dial case is hermetically sealed, so it will not fog or allow moisture infiltration.

Dial Face:

Unbreakable plastic crystal.


All welded stainless steel design. This product can be left inside the compost pile and does not need to be stored inside. It can withstand the chemical and biological weathering of the compost pile over time.

Quality Assurance:

Reotemp is a ISO 9001 certified company.


Important note:

More than 90% of our customers who buy a Super Duty Compost Themometer, opt for adding a Compost Thermometer Probe Handle with their purchase.
The Probe Handle protects the dial face from accidental damage and is also used to push and pull the thermometer into and out of the compost pile.
