So my limbs not being strong enough to support the buds that last week or two of flower I thought could have been prevented if I had been monitoring tds and adding in cal mag. Guess I will be getting cal mag soon.
I thought maybe ppt parts per trillion
What is that other monster you said?? I’m not even gonna attempt to try a recreate that.
the calculator has a …well, calculator for this…PPM scale is different in dif countries…just to piss me of personally…no other reason…
I think we are 500 scale…check that
there is a ppb (billion…) makes ense that there would be a higher version…i cant imagine a hand meter doing it tho?
(Not …"They dont"but “have not seen yet”)
You can think of millisemin as current…in tiny numbers…
I suppose i should say i did not check the spelling…its a ridiculous name either way.
When i work on hospital systems…we stop at ppb…
Scripts labs in jupitor are the only ones i can think of that might do more…and they wont let me near that stuff…lol
Bajillion $ machines lol
I don’t have anything to calibrate with it is an old meter that I was able to acquire from a friend who didn’t need it. There is a scale that can be adjusted I just don’t want to break the pen. 0.17 ppt. 0.34 mS. Not sure but I’m gonna try that tag you posted and see if I can convert to something in the area of ignorant so I can understand.
So mS = ec thru some portal that can be accessed by the magic code of conversion and ppt= tds but it’s a different portal
mixx nutes perfectly (as close as you can get it) and Check your nutes it should be close to what the manufacturer says it will be(starting tds of your water is the variable here )…if its not close…only then would i consider calibration…tds / ec meters are not a touchy as PH… in my career i never managed to not lose a tds pen before i even thought i MIGHT need to calibrate it… (wont work on PH perfect tho…ec meters go nutts in it)
I would probably go with the ec/ms tho
All are the same thing…Put current in and the less that makes it threw the water ( pure water is an insulator…it will not carry current like you might think)
The purer it is…
(My limited understanding of this is) ms is a direct number representing current making it threw…tds is someones idea of a bad joke…fone? nonono my stupid friend…it is Phone…because i want it to be
I just poured some water in a cup to play with. I plugged in the numbers using .17 ppm tds as it was the only option on the conversion and it converted it to.0003 ec. Now I have to remember to try this when I’m adding in nutes. The flower girls get 7 different ones and it changes week to week. The grow girls only get 4 so I will have to pay attention kicking my own butt for watering earlier today… guess I’ll catch the next boat.
Im not looking now but i hit this wall when i was going threw the tds scale stuff…it should be there it is just listed weird
and i think usa is 500 scale tds… i would have to check google
Check that…it is different than i remember…either i was using a dif one or they simplified it
The YouTube representative of Hanna showed the scale in the pen and how to adjust. He also said it should be around 20 when I checked it was set to 20. I should switch it to 500 and see if it smokes.
That sounds like a calibration thing…no actual clue tho…hit me with the youtube vid
Which might be why I was just given a really good pen for free lol
It did strike me as quality
Ok I played with the conversion it scales from .42 to 2.9
The next option after that was a percentage I do not know what it is for but I put it to 0.
I tried it at 2.9 and .50 no different and changing the percentage didn’t change the numbers or the units of measure
It does let you change scales…500 is the one you should be using
watch 2:25 in the vid…it would be set to 50…
is my current understanding
