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.
@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.

You have amazingly good tap water
@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.
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.
@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
Ya man make sure its calibrated properly first
what solution are you using?
