    Default Extremely high EC?

    So I'm a new grower, have just got an EC meter after getting nute burn on my plant. When i checked the back round EC it read 0834us/cm 0417ppm now I was under the impression I wanted numbers at like 0.2 but my tap water is in the hundreds? Or am I being dumb and reading it wrong?

    its reading ppm, it can be converted dependin on the equipment used to take the reading, like above you want blue labs or cheaper version but good quality would be essentials brand, about 35quid

    As a comparison, does yours look similar to the 1st pic? That's reading just over 1000 which is 1ec (Last night's runoff). My water reads 0068 which is 0.06 ec.
