No worries, I don't feel derailed at all. It just seems as though everyone who grows some form of hydroponics recommends checking the nutrients strength when mixing and PPM is number attributed to that strength/concentration. I'm just try to do what I can to get the best results. You haven't derailed me, just a lot of info to soak in.

All that being said, I did find out that my TDS meter converts EC to PPM using the NaIC formula. I found this chart to help with the different formulas. So now I should be able to find the EC based upon my PPM readout but I'm still unsure of what level it is supposed to be to ensure the best growth for peppers.

I did come across EC while looking for information of PPM levels for Kratky. I didn't pay it much attention as I thought it was a totally different reading. Am I actually looking at an EC reading if the digital readout on my TDS meter says PPM? I took a reading of my tap water this morning and it came out at 114ppm. Taking that into consideration, what reading should I be looking for when I mix my nutes in, to have it at the proper concentration for a established plant?

Sounds incredible. You should have some real beast sized pepper plants.

That's what I'm hoping for!
