inline tds meter

  1. Rochester Minnesota Marine Aquarium Club (RMMAC)
    I just replaced my prefilter, 5 micron carbon, 1 micron carbon, RO, & DI (pretty much everything) and I added an inline TDS meter. I am a sucker for toys, I love seeing that my water is 0-1 ppm after leaving the RO and 0 ppm after the DI. My logical excuse is that I can now have a better idea...

    So, I am getting ready to start my reef tank back up after a year of down time. Got out my r.o. unit and realize I know nothing about it. I have a bag of fresh resin, thought about replacing the membrane, but then I realized how cheap I am. :) Its a membrane rated for 100 gallons per day...

    Let's say I decide to not go fresh water. Say I decide to replace the pressure booster pump for my RO/DI. Help me rethink my tank and redesign my sump with say a budget of $700. Current tank: 75 gallon bare bottom AGA Reef Ready sitting on a standard AGA pine stand. 2 Seio 1500 gph pumps...

    All right, newbie question time (actually I just always used to take my water to the LFS for testing but I want to do it myself now.) So I'm in the market for some testing supplies. From what I've gathered, Salifert is the choice brand. However which test kits should I buy? I have a pH probe...

    Ok I think this has been gone over before. So please forgive me if it has. When you use a holding container (garbage can, rubbermaid etc) and a mechanical float. How do you prevent from using so much DI resin? I know my TDS is not that high. Every time I get water and the float drops so the RO...

    I'm looking at buying my own RO unit instead of lugging water jugs back and forth from my lfs. I would like to put it under one my bathroom sinks. I think that is the only place my wife will let me put it. I do have plenty of space for it and at least a 10 gallon container. I've done a...

    I just received my Typhoon 111 ro/di unit. Along with it I also ordered a TDS unit. I really don't understand what it is suppose to do but I ordered it any way. When I test reg tap water it reads 082 when I put it in ro water(not from my new typhoon its not hooked up yet) the tds reads err. The...

    My rock gets quite dark after a couple of weeks. I don't have a huge problem with the glass. I can use that magnetic cleaner thingy on it once a week or maybe 2X a week and I'm good. Don't seem to be scraping glass much except where the magnet won't reach. Not too long ago I took all the...
