Does anybody have an exploded parts manual for a Fluval 405?

Or, if you have a 405, can you pull up the priming plunger and see if there is a small black o-ring under the handle? I can't figure out where this o-ring goes... thanks!

How to read a TDS meter?

I bought a Milwaukee TDS meter... it reads 71 in tap water, and 3 in the RO... can something explain what this means to me? The instructions say to multiply by a factor of 10. Thanks!

I would have guessed jungle val too. Also, I think it's hysterical that you put it next to a banana for size reference! Is that a regulation size banana!?

That's what I did, I think it was $118 for 3 9l bags delivered. Cheap it ain't... I could have picked a cheaper & less addictive hobby like smoking crack.
