Please make sure your TDS is set at zero ppm.
Mix a batch at preferably 1.026
Test it for Phosphates and post your results.
Let's see what everyone comes up with.

just curios.....
did you test the water right after your RO/DI ? then was "0" ?
did you test the water from your make water container b 4 mix. the salt ? then was "0" ?
did you mix. and make the water around 77F temp. ?
Thank You.
When I said "0" I refer to PO4 ppm not TDS.

I saw 0.06 two week-ends ago before my water change. But I forgot to remeasure this week.

Will post my results on Sunday, both for the RO/DI and then the freshly mixed saltwater.

Ro Di 0
Container 0
Temp was 76 but temp for me doesn't matter since my test kit compensates
And my two Refractometer and phosphate kits are on target

Is NOT about "0" because zero is NOT zero any way. Hanna have Accuracy: @ 25?C ?0.04 ppm (mg/L) ?4% of reading. We need PO4 but , hard to balance and test (organic). Hard to keep down.
