Thinking about starting a saltwater 30g?

I am not using a filter. And for dry rock, I'd get the caribsea dry rock from dr. Foster and smith. 40 lbs for 83$. I would recommend at least 30 lbs.

You need to replace the RODI parts when your TDS (measured by a TDS meter) starts rising.

So I have to buy this TDS meter,
What is considered high that I have to change parts of the RO/DI.
What parts of the RO/DI do I have to change.
How do i test TDS. From tank water? Or from water that jut went through RO/DI

Most units have an inline tds meter, and you want 0 tds

So when it gets to like 1-2 ppm, which part of Ro/di do i replace cause there are 3. Do I replace the resin thing or all of it? How long does it take for the TDS to go up
