    I have not tested for Electrical Conductivity, but when I read your post I tested for Total Dissolved Solids out of curiosity and it was around 250 ppm (1/4 teaspoon Maxsea mixed in 1 gallon of water). I was a bit surprised it was so high so checked the calibration of my meter and yep, it is accurate.

    Thank you very much, DJ! I've been wondering how much seaweed extracts people are applying with MaxSea. I don't have it because I prefer a complete fertilizer (with Ca and Mg). But based on your measurement, I can probably guess the concentration of seaweed in MaxSea (I'll need to do some measurements when I have time) under the assumption that they are just using MaxiCrop powder form as the seaweed source.

    Do you have the TDS reading of your base water?

    I don't have an exact measurement, but my water runs between 32 and 40 ppm in summer to give you an idea. Today TDS was 38 ppm.
