top off with fresh water only, and then check salinity. I would take some water to lfs and see if their salinity reading is the same that you get. If not, time for a new hydrometer. I have a cheap swing arm type that give a rough reading, they are quicker, cheaper, and easier to use than a hydrometer, but much less accurate.
