    Will the bright light or sunlight effect the ppm readings?

    No. UV light would kill bacteria/germs but not affect salts

    No probs. It's interesting point as uv does sterilise/purify water for human consumption, but the minerals are particles, harmless to people, offensive to clear windows :)

    I haven't seen that. Apart from maybe protecting the plastics... Sun would make plastic brittle in time

    I think there cover the tank to stop algae forming from the sunlight ... Tds reading are interesting ,,,,last summer I checked mine it was around 300 , now it around 150 so I'm thinking when it's very dry with little or no rain for a while the tds creeps up ...

    Maybe the sun/heat agitates the sediment
