Would anyone be willing to test my waters Salinity? To verify my refractometer.

    Have a PM2 module and Salinity probe, and what I believed to be an accurate Refractometer, they are reading wildly different readings, so looking to check the Salinity with a 3rd Party to verify. If your close to Lafayette, Co and have a know accurate Refractometer, then give me a shout, thanks.

    FYI, neptunes cond probe needs to be hydrated before it will calibrate to a correct reading. Let it soak in your sump for a week. After that, float the packet in your tank as close as you can get to 77F and calibrate with the packet still touching water to retain temp. Use temp compensation enabled at 2.2 to start. Adjust temp compensation up 0.1 if cond rises when temp rises or vise versa.

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.

    Thanks for the advice Zombie, I'll give that a go and see what it looks like, right now it's about 5ppt off the refractometer that I now know to be accurate.
