What is used to test TDS? One of those digital read-out machines?

Tried calling LFS and none of them would be able to test my tap water to see how bad it is.

I went with SeaChems Marine Basic kit, and then a Reef Status for Calcium, and Salifert for Magnesium.
I already had a phosphate kit (SeaChem) for my freshwater planted tank testing.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.
