I hope you can help me. I have been making silver for 5 years. I used a TDS meter at first but it was recommended on this forum to buy a Hanna PWT (pure water tester), so I did.
A friend wanted to make some, so I gave her directions. I called the place I bought my meter from AND called Hanna directly. Both told me that whatever my meter reads is double the ppm of my silver but the first guy admitted he knew nothing about making CS.
I 'cook' my silver until the meter reads 18. which would mean only 9 ppm when first made and less after it stabilizes.
Could someone who uses this meter tell me what reading is correct for making approx. 18 ppm? Or a formula to use maybe?
The thing is, what I make works. It works for everything for me AND for everyone I give it away to.
Even my doctor is all for it after seeing what it has done for me. Quite awhile ago I posted about that. If you care to read it, look at the other posts I wrote in the past.
Oh yes, I do know that meters are not accurate for testing cs.
One more question. I have used a candle warmer (NOT the type with a flame)to make the water warmer. It seems to cook faster that way. But should I do this or is room temperature the way to go?
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
