If you are looking at accurately checking salt levels in your pond but don't want to pay for an electronic tester a simple refractometer will do the same job at a quarter of the price.
No batteries, no electronics, easy to calibrate. Here is the one I bought currently available for £12.79!

Cheers Dave - appreciate the advice !
Your link is not actually taking me to the product ?
Which one do you recommend as there are several refractometers on Amazon
I had come across these before but discounted as they are for the kitchen or aquarium but clearly water is water wherever
