American marine pinpoint salinity monitor - anybody having these issues?

Cutting a long story short, I've calibrated my monitor probe with appropriate fluid and placed into my main DT.
However... When I turn lights off my monitor salinity levels raise drastically... When I turn them on they drop drastically....

Why does this happen? It feels like some sort of lighting/conductivity interference, has anyone experienced this? Currently I have no idea what my salinity level even is....

When I make fresh salt I use the monitor away from all electronic interference, so I have no reason to believe that this salt mix is inaccurate after referring back to conversion table all did 'actually' make sense.

So do I believe the reading at lights out? Orrrrrrr lights on?

I'm gutted by this machine and I highly recommend anybody to think high and hard before purchasing this product.
