Question Epoxy and Salinity?

Can Epoxy Make your Salinity go up? I used some today and my Skimmer went crazy and when I went to check my salinity it was up around 1.027 It was @ 1.024. I recalibrate my Refractometer to make sure again and it was reading 1.027. So just wandering if Epoxy can cause this?

I've never seen the epoxy alone cause any issues with salinity. But if your skimmer went nuts (which is often the case) THAT probably caused it. No different than evaporation. That's one of the things to watch if you set your skimmer up to skim "wet".
