Re: (hardness, tds, etc.)
Thanks Lee, I just did not want people to think that it was only good for
moving fish from tank to tank. Most people start with a hardness titration
kit so they have a base line as a reference before they ever buy a meter..
Remember the ones with the soap solution to triturate till you get suds? I
still have never heard if salt has the same osmotic effect. I doubt it due
to the molecular size but it sure is conductive. Half a teasp per gal and
your meter is off scale if it stops at 999 ppm.
