In the first step, allow the tanks to be empty for several hours. Then start he process. Perform the "empty" readings. Fill the tanks JUST LIKE THE INSTRUCTIONS SAY VERBATIM! That means, Fill them, then drain a little, so you have warning before they are truly full.

LET THEM SIT AT THIAS FULL LEVEL FOR SEVERAL HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then proceed with the "teaching" the monitor the full level. Don't worry, apparently the monitor will stay in calibration mode indefinitely
I think mine has been in calibration mode for over two years. Perhaps I'll finally calibrate the monitor again with the tube setup.
