How do you test for TDS? Does somebody make a test kit for that? I have that same exact RO/DI unit, which I have been using for about 6-months now and everything has been fine. But know I think Id like to test for TDS. Thanks.

Didn't you get in on that free deal for the hand held TDS meter at one point Neilan? Have you tried that to see if it gets the same results?

Yeah, I have that around here somewhere. I should give it a shot, good call. I haven't yet collected any of the water, it's all just been running down the drain so far. lol

Yeah, it was definately about time, I agree.

Made more progress on the stand over the weekend. It's nearly complete and the canopy will get started this week. I've decided my pace is too slow, so I'm going to try to do a little each evening. Problem is using the table saw in my neighborhood, they don't care for the noise after 7ish. Sides have been completed and I just need to do the doors on the front, which I bought material for yesterday, and the top piece I just need to have cut to size.

I got some more DI resin and repacked that module in the RO/DI unit. TDS is still reading around 8 or so, which I don't understand, but figure at least it's good enough for curing the rock. The batteries in my handheld TDS meter are dead, so I'll get some replacements then take Sparky's recommendation to verify the readings. Working on filling up the 35g cans I got and then will get the rock on order.

Finally, some more progress

Finally getting some more stuff done. Today so far I've got the top on the stand. 3/4" sandeply: nice, flat and level.

Also, you can see how I've hinged the sides to give full access inside from the sides as well.



And of course, my trusty helper:

You need to invest in some glasses that fit you. Isn't your helper a little old to be playing with somebody your age?
