    Calibrating a DM 1 dual TDS meter?

    I am trying to calibrate it with a HM TDS cal fluid of 342 ppm and the sensors don't read the same. Should I split the difference or is one of the sensors bad. I calibrate one and the other is 5ppm higher. Any suggestions?

    Aquavitro Salinity salt

    A local fish store has or had a bunch of it. I was using Tropic Marin Pro Reef but this made more and he was running a special. I also like the idea of the lab test on the bucket. The name of the store is Reef Coral in Baton Rouge. You may see if he would send you some.
