Did you get a solution with it to calibrate it to?
Mine came with a bottle that should read right at 30.
RO/DI should really read 0.

if you don't have a solution then RO/DI water is perfectly fine to use. It should be at exactly 1. Be sure to follow the refractometer's directions. Hydrometers are notoriously bad at giving different results. due to salt build up, bubbles, net setting it on a perfectly level surface, etc. Trust the refractometer.
