Just get a good quality salt mix and mix it with RODI water. Has to be cheaper than buying that stuff. And get the rrefractomer. One of the best investments you can make.

I think it comes at 1.025, I try to keep it a little lower at around 1.023ish so adding some regular r/o brings it down a little.
