    Lol, I just used mine like 5 minutes ago. I bought mine off ebay about 3 months ago. Here is the link to the same one. It seems well made.

    My new TDS meter was waiting for me in my mailbox when I returned to Houston from Dallas.

    My tap water reads ~335 ppm TDS. Rainwater collected from my roof reads 27 ppm TDS.

    Water in the Utric pail of my outside bog garden reads 35 ppm TDS.

    I got the model you linked to above.

    How often does it need calibration, or will the calibration never get so far off that i can't really trust it for this purpose?

    The meter was made by Hanna instruments, so it WAS very well made.

    I have a pH/Temp meter from them I use in brewing beer.
