    I hope you get an answer in time!

    If you can't come right, here's some tips and questions.
    OR, if you get a kind aquarist to help you test tds....

    Are you making/buying RO?
    If buying, ask if LFS can test for you, in front of you.

    A few ppm TDS does not likely mean that your RO is at fault though.
    RO could be at fault, acc to test/s, not JUST TDS.

    You can also fault your salt mix? Have you tested BEFORE adding to tank?

    Substrate - size, type, maintenance?
    Live and other rock - origin, type, maintenance?

    Other issues?
    Flow volume , type, and coverage of area?

    Use of low-grade, inappropriate carbon.

    Excessive, or unnecessary use of ANY ADDITIVES besides Ca, Mg, Alk, pH.

    If that doesn't work for you, you can have tds meter sent to closest Post Office. AQuality has replied in sponsor forums.
