How low is hypo does it have to stay right at 1.010 because as the water evaps the salinity rises and its about 24 hours before I get water made and in the tank. Also do I have to use ro water or can I tap with prime?

I would use the water right out of your DT,,It MUST stay at 1.009..
I always go to 1.008 to allow that little bit of evap...It can't go up above .009 or you'll have to start over
