  • Water is the most critical resource issue of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.” – Luna Leopold

    What is TDS
    TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids and refers to the total concentration of dissolved substances in drinking water. TDS comprises inorganic salts and a small amount of organic matter as well. Inorganic salts are made up of the positively charged cations (calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium) and negatively charged anions (carbonates, nitrates, bicarbonates, chlorides and sulfates). The TDS level is how much of the total dissolved solids are present in the water.

    Importance of TDS in Drinking Water
    TDS in drinking water originates from places like natural sources, sewage, urban run-offs, industrial wastewater, chemicals in the water treatment process, chemical fertilizers used in the garden and plumbing. Water is a universal solvent and easily picks up impurities and can absorb and dissolve these particles quickly. Although elevated levels of TDS in drinking water is not a health hazard, it does lend the water a bitter, salty, or brackish taste. Calcium and magnesium, two minerals commonly found in TDS, can also cause water hardness, scale formation, and staining.

    Different TDS levels
    The TDS level helps indicate whether the drinking water is fit for consumption, requires filtration or is highly contaminated. Parts per million (PPM) is the measurement used for measuring TDS level in the water.

    Why Should You Measure TDs Levels

    Naturally, mineral water has no smell or taste. A change in the TDS level changes the texture and taste, making the water unfit for consumption. Some of the reasons why you should measure the TDS level of your drinking water are:

    • Taste (high TDS level can make the water salty and/or bitter).
    • PHealth Concerns (water with high TDS level will not have a drastic impact on your health but the
      high level of lead or copper can make you fall sick).
    • Cooking (TDS level above 1000 PPM can change the way the food tastes).
