How long do you leave it in with the salt/water? I tried to do it last night and got a funny reading. Then I noticed the battery was dying, so I changed the batteries, and started over with the salt and water. Seems to be working fine now, but how long do I wait?

Well it's been 7 hours and its decreasing now. It went as high as 72 and now it's sitting at 68.

Do I take the highest setting and figure on that? Or do I wait, and take whatever reading it is after 12 hours?

I let mine go 12 hours the first time and then overnight when something just seemed off (about another 12 to 14 hours) after a day in the bator.
