Shouldnt it read at 0? When I calibrate my refracto it should read 0.
You will need to use distilled water and calibrate it by aligning the two horizontal lines on top of eachother.

They were talking about hydros and using distilled water to find what 0 really should be on the hydrometer.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
