It measures total dissolved solids. For ro/di you want it to read 0. Lower is better.

You don't need to buy a tds meter when you can get it in the jugs for the time being.

I am doing it as a temporary fix until I get my ro/di back up and running. I've been at it for awhile now. A necessary evil for the time being.

I use "purified" water from Publix, the local grocery. It runs me 64 cents a gallon, works perfectly. I can't wait to buy my own RODI, but had to buy new led lights, a few new fish, etc. ate up my budget.
