I just had an incident where my inline tds readings got stuck. They read the normal 30 from the tap, 0 after the ro membrane, and 0 after di so I didn't question it.

I finally realized something was wrong and fixed the problem. Now I would like an alternative check to prevent the issue in the future.

I know I could use a handheld TDS meter and check periodically but I didn't do it this time so I probably won't do it next time. Which has me thinking about using a reefbot or similar to run a freshwater test on the rodi storage occasionally as a sanity check.

Which one of these tests would you pick? Would you use more than one?
