2 ppm will be fine. You will generally be water spot free up to around 20ppm.

Buy a bottle of di water and see if the meter reads zero on that. It's a good way to test the meter

Ive got to say I'm amazed how good these Di vessels are & how much time I'm saving washing 2 4x4's.

What's with the foam insulation around the vessel?

Probably to stop it freezing in cold temps.

Never considered that. Never had to insulate mine

Insulation, I havnt a garage and couldn't be bothered to keep dragging it in and out the house, so I made a wall hung box, and cut up 12"x12"x4" squares of floor insulation, then cut out a 9" diameter circle in the middle and just stacked them up. It's been out side almost 2 years now, no issues.

It's down to 0ppm now,I'm think it's the cup I put the water in because when I put the water in a glass it's on 0.

even a minute amount of washing up liquid or detergent residue could affect the reading. You are talking 2 parts per million
