Hey everyone, just got my essentials EC meter today and just tested it on my tap water and it’s reading 0.00. Not getting my calibration fluid till next week. Just wondering if anyone else’s water reads 0.00? 
I am going to calibrate once I’ve got the calibration fluid. 
cheers

@sub8 would be extremely rare for a tap water reading 0.00 EC. Try an put just a sprinkle of table salt in a cup of water, stir and check it again. The EC should increase significantly, if it doesn’t there might be something wrong with the meter.

@monkeydo hey, tried good pinch salt and water came in at 1.4. 
I’m assuming the next step is to calibrate once I get the calibration fluid.

@sub8 yer brother, it obviously has sensitivity so calibration is next and agreed, your water quality must be amazing

@monkeydo received my calibration fluid. So calibrated ec meter and tried tap water I a glass and the ec meter is still reading 0.00. so I’m a bit confused as I thought I would get some reading/measurement.

im still a little unsure about EC as I’m not experienced at all. 
cheers

Test all sorts of things. You can even test your PEE, so I've heard. And test the accuracy of your meter and your pee. Monkey will probably have real solutions for you thou.

Have you checked with your local water company website to see what they say the EC should be?

@macky just been on water board site, I don’t know whether this is the right thing I’m looking for. 
my water is supplied by a lake if that makes any difference 
the pic shows, minimum, average, max and units.

Hey    something doesnt seem right there    so when you put your meter in the calibration solution it gives the correct reading?  For example my calibration fluid is 1000ppm   Not many water sources are 0.00  my r.o water comes off at 50 ppm

 @old-hippie so when I put the meter in the solution it comes up with 2.8 which is perfect with the solution. I’m thinking will have to try calibration again n see if I get the same outcome. 😫
