Has any body used this tester before. I need to start testing my

fresh water source. Or if any body can turn me on to a better one, please do.

I buy our drinking water ( and top off water) from a water store here in Burbank.

When the guy first opened it 6 years ago, he had all new equipment,

ozone generator, solid carbon plus crushed coconut shell,

R/O and ultra violet lights....I helped him assemble some of this

so I was sure of the water quality and never questioned it.

NOW, almost seven years later AND three owners later,

I am not so sure this latest guy is keeping up his maintenance the way he should.

It takes a lot of money to maintain it the way it should

and all the owners complained about not making money,

that's why people keep selling it, even the first owner.

When I asked him about the filters and everything, he looked at

me like I was insulting him and in his Russian-Armenian accent said,

"OF COURSE I CHANGE, I DON'T, PEOPLE DON'T BUY WATER!!"

...why don't I feel any better after this statement???

Like his customers would really know the difference, I DON'T!!

 

I haven't noticed a difference in taste, but my reef was getting some cyno.

I tried all the basic's...cutting down the lights,feeding and some extra water changes,

I ended up having to use a little chemiclean and it's gone now,

but I still need to find the cause.

 

Thanx reefer's!!!

My personal choice is the HM Digital COM-100 but the TDS-3.is a good choice too. The TDS-4 will not measure temperature. The TDS EZ does not have the same level of accuracy at 3%+/- and it is not automatically temperature compensated nor will it measure temperature.

 

The COM-100 and TDS-3 are both temp compensated plus the COM-100 can measure conductivity too.

The Hanna will not measure temperature.

Hey... I live in Burbank & get my RO water from an Armenian Water & Ice store off of Glenoaks. Wondering if it is the same store.
