Hold function:Saves measurements for convenient reading and recording. Auto-off function:Turns off meter after 10 minutes of non-use to conserve batteries. Daul Range:Measures from 0-999ppm,with a resolution of 1 ppm.From 1000 to 9990 ppm,the resolution is 10ppm,indicated by drinking x10 symbol,Factory calibrated.
- Remove the protective cap.
- Turn the TDS Meter on
- Immerse the meter into the water/solution up to maximum immersion level.
- Wait until the display stabilizes,Once the readout is stabilized(10 to 30 seconds),press the hold button to save reading.The TDS meter automatically compenstates for temperature variations.
- After usage,shake off water from your meter or wipe it with a tissue.
|Take off cap and press "ON/OFF"button
||Press the “HOLD” button to savereading
||Replace the cap after cleaning the electrode
Do not drop the entire TDS meter in water or dip beyond the maximum immersion level.This unit is not water-tight and is not covered under the warranty if water enters the unit.
Do not store the TDS meter under high temperature or direct sunlight.This will shorten the life-span of the product and potentially void the warranty.
The TDS-3 is calibrated at 342ppm.It is recommended that the calibration level be as close as possible to sample to be tested.If you are testing higher ppm(Member,water quality association)

What Is TDS?
Total Dissolved Solids(TDS) are the total weight of all solids (minerals,salts,or metals)that are dissloved in a given volume of water,expressed in milligrams per liter(mg/L),or In parts per million(PPM).
The lower the TDS level in the water,the more efficiently your body’s cells actually get hydrated by the water you drink.
The higher the TDS level in the water,the greater the probability of harmful contaminants that can pose health risks or hinder the adsorption of water molecules on the cellular level.
The EPA’s maximum contaminant levels of TDS in secondary drinking water is 500mg/L(500PPM)
