I haven't tried with K=1.
Do you have one to try?

the probe is a k=.99 which is the same. The higher the number the less accurate. K=.1 is good down to .5 uS, 1 down to 5uS and 10 is good for 10uS

From my understanding a probe of K=1 is not really suitable for saltwater readings. I believe that generally probes for saltwater have a K of 2 or greater with 10 being very common.

Am I misunderstanding something here? What is the K of the probe shipped with the RA?

It uses K=1, but we never saw any problems with reading values.
