And the bakery department at my store gives the kids a free cookie, and it is also by the water filling station. So I get away without having to buy candy. LOL!
I keep mine at 1.025 also since I use a hydrometer.
Did you make sure there wasn't an air bubble stuck to the hydrometer lever? Also you rinse it really good before and after in fresh water? One time I didn't rinse mine very well so the lever was a little stuck from dried salt. The reading was way off. Rinsed it really well and voila- it worked right again. I always bang it down on the table to make sure there aren't any bubbles in it.
He just turned 2
I try with the candy but that's not enough to get him out of the house, once we are in the car he wants the candy lol!
No, I've never rinsed it! I will do that now and retest. I had another cloudy mix
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong... The first time I mixed the water using store bought water it was clear & perfect, the last 2 times I used my RO
unit and the water comes out super cloudy with a residue on the sides if the garbage can I bought to hold my water.
