    Yeah that's what I'm thinking. Think only way to get to bottom of it is buy another from somewhere like purefreedom and see what that comes up with. Just hope that's not a diff reading lolll or I'm stuffed hahaha

    The one from eBay come with that n the little screwdriver and I tried that but all still the same lol I thinks a new meter may look at a inline one don't think there that much money. What's doing my nut is how the readings are so far apart yet after the ro it's 10 n 7

    Hi Bernie,

    We stock these: http://www.aqua-dapter.co.uk/accessories/hm-digital-tds-3-handheld-tds-meter-with-case/

    We'd seen lots of cheap TDS meters so checked to see which were the best, these were recommended.

    It also depends how accurate you want/need it to be. If one was reading '0' and the other '35' that might be more of a problem. If you can get '0' out of both of them (if that's what you're aiming for - not everyone does) then you should find you get a good clean.

    It's more the fact that the water from the tap is so far out and yet out of the ro it's only diff of 3 that's whats got me puzzled loll. But I guess at end off day after di long as both meters are 000 it's not going to matter.

    It looks like percentages, add approx 45% variance to your lowest reading and you'll see the number is somewhere near your higher readings.
