Where to buy TDS Meter locally?

I read in another forum that walmart carried them, i couldn't find them there. Does Lowes ,ace hardware, or home depot carry them. I don't want to order online if don't have to. Thanks

go to a drugstore chain and look in the water filter aisle. I got mine from walgreens for around $10.

Try one of the club forums local to you, I bet a local LFS will have some.

The hardware should have them in the water purification section in plumbing.

I found the TDS Meter at the Wal-Mart by my job. It was in the automotive/rv section, it was around $11.00. I measured my tap which came out at 316, then i measured my distilled which was 0 I guess my water wasntt causing my algae bloom. I think it was the way i fed my fish, i started rinsing the frozen food under tap water and i have seen a great difference in just 2 days. Thanks for the help though.
