    I was thinking.

    We all know it is impossible to accurately measure the pH of RO water with an electronic meter.

    To get around this I was thinking that one shoudl just add a tiny pinch of table salt to the water being tested. Salt wont affect the pH but will increase the ions in the water making it possible to get an accurate reading using an electronic pH meter.
