The tap water was <300 , the tank was checked on Saturday at 300 and then water changed Sunday afternoon, rechecked Sunday eve

I've changed the battery with no difference , or no difference upwards, today's reading is 95

Mains water here is normally pulled from the limestone aquifer as 750-800 tds calcium soup, could be they've switched to reservoir water to cover the end of summer .

As no one here chimed in with a yes that always happens with ferts I'm thinking maybe the meter has gone into landfill mode , I ordered a new one yesterday (allegedly arriving today) for a second opinion


update:
Smell the glove is here!! freshly unboxed new meter shows 330 which is close to expectations so seems the old meter had gone belly up overnight
