Making your own standard will yield the most accurate results. This is done by making a mixture of salts in relative proportions that simulate the solution to be tested, then dissolving the mixture into distilled water. This should be done according to the following formula:1 mg salt mixture/liter of distilled water = 1 ppm TDS, or in other words, X ppm TDS = X mg of salts + one liter of distilled water.
Remember that “X mg of salts” is the number of milligrams of a mixture of salt whose proportions simulate your test solution. An appropriate value for “X” is determined by the following rule:
Choose a ppm value for a calibrated solution as close as possible to the expected ppm values of the test solutions. If the ppm content of the test solution is expected to vary a great deal, it is best to choose a ppm value for the calibrated solution in the upper 1/3 of the TDS conductivity range.

The two types of conductivity sensor supplied by Pi are ‘Toroidal’ and ‘Graphite’. The ‘Toroidal’ sensor covers the higher ranges from 0 µS/cm to 2,000,000 µS/cm or more often expressed as 0 mS/cm to 2000 mS/cm.The ‘Graphite’ sensor covers the range from 0-5000 µS/cm. Within that range we use different range constants (K- factor) to make the sensor more suitable for different applications. If you are measuring in the range 0-100 µS/cm then you will need a K- factor of 0.1. If you are measuring in the range 0-1000 µS/cm then a K-factor of 1.
