Just tried a new digital meter to measure TDS

Just tried a new digital meter to measure TDS. TDS out of the tap at 120. Almost scared to test tank. Got to do it though. New RO machine is in rout. Any ideas here? Tank TDS is around 800!

My tanks tds is 2000 or somethin daft. It will be high is your dosing or using salt with added good stuff. Just worry about your RO being 0tds

You can't test the TDS of the water in your tank. The number will never tell you what is going on due to one of the main dissolved solids in the water...salt!
