Do you have a TDS meter? It's critical for figuring out if the unit is
working well or not, or when


Many people do not realize that a TDS meter is unnecessary. Then there
is the issue of TDS as TDS, as NaCl and CaCO3. A conductivity meter
can not measure any of these values/say. There is no way a TDS meter
can tell you how many ppm of Total Dissolved Solids there are in a
sample. My husband says the same can be acomplished by floating a meat
thermometer in the water for 5 minutes. if the setting is above well
done or broasted, the total dissolved solids are within normal levels.

From my research, you do realize this is exactly what he, and

supposedly another fellow, use to do to Reel McCoy? I don't even know
your posting style that well, but it only took an instant to figure
out the fake. Roy's only talent is to taunt. He'll get his eventually.
