Conductivity checking of anodizing electrolyte


Is it possible using a electronic conductivity meter (I found one in my "junk pile") to check the quality of my anodizing electrolyte? If its possible what range of values are good? It would help me a lot if someone could answer my question because then I would know when it's time to change my electrolyte and secure a good quality of my work.

I think conductivity meter will only give you an idea of the total dissolved solids but not necessarily that of the acid electrolyte.

Titration is still the widely used testing practice.
