Is my ph probe still good???

I just realized it has been dry for quite some time. I stuck it in some water and it seems to be fine...

Should I recalabrate it and use it or should I run a new one??

I would clean it with vinegar, then rinse in fresh watter, then re calibrate it. check the calibration again in a day or two.

hint*** when calibrating a probe, have a glass of ro/di handy to rinse the probe every time you change solutions salt water > 7.0 > 10.0 each can contaminate the other making your calibration less accurate

I'd HEARD that if they dry out they're done.

It's a week day - I'd suggest calling the manufacturer to see what they have to say.
If you can't do something right...
