Economical test for salt in drinking water

Is there a simple test that will show the amount of salt at our well head and at locations throughout our house? We have a new home with a private well, and occassionally we get a burp in our plumbing resulting in a very salty taste in our drinking water. We have a soft water system and an RO system for drinking specifically. We would like to first check the salt content of the incomming water and then monitor the salt content throughout the house for a period of time. Consequently, we are seeking an economical way of testing for salt.
