What is TDS?

  • What is TDS (Total Dissolved Solids)?Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) are the compounds in the water that cannot be removed by a traditional filter. TDS is directly related to the purity of water and the quality of water purification systems and affects everything that consumes, lives in, or uses water, whether organic or inorganic, whether for better or for worse. TDS are made up of salts or compounds which dissociate in water to form ions. these are the total amount of mobile charged cat ions (positively charged) and anions (negatively charged) including minerals, salts or metals dissolved in given volume of water, expressed in unit of mg per unit volume of water (mg/l), also referred to us Parts Per Million (PPM). This means that a salt has two parts, one with a positive charge and one with a negative charge, which separate and mix with the water (H20) molecules. Table salt, for example, is sodium and Chloride together to form sodium chloride (NaCl). Some common salts which make up TDS are sodium, sulphate, chloride, calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. For a reference, sea water has a TDS of around 35,000 ppm, and the Missouri River near Great Falls has TDS in the neighborhood of 250 PPM.

  • Why should you measure the TDS level in your water? A high level of TDS is an indicator of potential concerns, and warrants further investigation. Most often, high levels of TDS are caused by the presence of potassium, chlorides and sodium. These ions have little or no short-term effects, but toxic ions (lead arsenic, cadmium, nitrate and other) may also be dissolved in the water. More soluble salts more diseases.

  • What is Electrolizer / ElectrolysisThe most effective method to test the quality of water. This method advocated by America "FDA" (FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION) electrolysis is a process, which breaks the molecules of soluble salt in +ve & -ve ions (TDS), they appear in the form of precipitate floating in water, when electric current is passes through the water with soluble impurities (Electrolytic Solution).

  • Where do Dissolved Solids come from? 1. Some dissolved solids come from organic sources such as leaves, silt, plankton and industrial waste and sewage. Other sources come from runoff from urban areas, road salt used on street during the winter, and fertilizers and pesticides used on lawns and farms.

    2. Dissolved solids also come from inorganic materials such as rocks and air that may contain calcium bicarbonate' nitrogen, iron phosphorous, sulfur, and other minerals. Many of these materials from salts, which are compounds that contain both a metal and a non-metal. Salts usually dissolve in water forming ions.

    3. Water may also pick up metals such as lead or copper as they travel through pipes used to distribute water to consumers.

    4. Note that the efficacy of water purifications system in removing total dissolved solids will be reduced over time, so it is highly recommended to monitor the quality of a filter or membrane and replace them when required.

  • How Do You Reduce or Remove the TDS in Your Water? Carbon filtration: Charcoal, a form of carbon with a high surface area, adsorbs (or sticks) to many compounds, including some toxic compounds. Water is passed through activated charcoal to remove such contaminants.

  • Reverse osmosis (RO)Reverse osmosis works by forcing water under great pressure against a semi-permeable membrane that allows water molecules to pass through while excluding most contaminants. RO is the most thorough method of large-scale water purification available.

  • DistillationDistillation involves boiling the water to produce water vapor. The water vapor then rises to a cooled surface where it can condense back into a liquid and be collected. Because the dissolved solids are not normally vaporized, they remain in the boiling solution.

  • Deionization (DI)Water is passed between a positive electrode and a negative electrode. Ion selective membranes allow the positive ions to separate from the water toward the negative electrode and the negative ions toward the positive electrode. High purity de-ionized water results. The water is usually passed through a reverse osmosis unit first to remove nonionic organic cont.

  • Here are some facts about the consequences of higher levels of TDS in water 1. High TDS results in undesirable taste which could be salty, bitter, or metallic. It could also indicate the presence of toxic minerals. High TDS water is less thirst-quenching.

    2. High TDS indicates hard water, which causes scale buildup in pipes and valves, inhibiting performance.

    3. High TDS interferes with the taste of foods and beverages, and makes them less desirable to consume. High TDS make ice cubes cloudy, softer and faster melting. For a truly great cup of coffee, proper TDS levels must be maintained.

    4. High TDS levels could impede the functions of certain applications, such as boilers and cooling towers, food and water production and more.

    5. TDS is the best measurement of the nutrient concentration in a hydroponic solution.

    6. TDS levels must be monitored to prevent maintenance problems

    7. TDS levels must be controlled prior to making colloidal silver.

    8. Test your water to make sure the reverse osmosis or other type of water filter or water purification systems has a high rejection rate and know when to change your filter (or membrane) cartridges. Have a washer with a spotless rinse? An inline dual TDS monitor will tell you when to change the filter cartridge or RO membrane.

    9. A constant level of minerals is necessary for aquatic life. The water in an aquarium or tank should have the same levels of TDS and pH as the fish and reef's original habitat.

    10. Some of the individual mineral salts that make up TDS pose a variety of health hazards. The most problematic are nitrates, sodium, sulfates, barium, copper and fluoride.

    11. Minerals exits in water mostly as inorganic salts. In contrast, minerals having passed through living systems are known as organic minerals. They are combined with proteins and sugars. According to many nutritionists minerals are much easier to assimilate when come from foods. Can you imagine Going out your garden for a cup of dirt to eat rather than a nice carrot, or drinking a whole bathtub of water for less calcium than that in an 8 ounce glass of milk?

    12. Water with higher TDS is considered by some health advocates to have a proper cleansing effect in the body than water with a low level of TDS. This is because water with low dissolved solid has a greater capacity of absorption than what water with higher solids.

    What is Hard Water? Water is considered hard when it has a relatively high concentration of calcium and magnesium ions (two of the salts which make up TDS). Hard water received this name because it requires more soap to get a good lather and makes the water “hard” to work with. Water hardness can be reported in milligrams per liter, PPM (which is equivalent to milligrams per liter), or grains of hardness. One grain of hardness is equal to 17.1 milligrams per liter. In addition to making washing more difficult, hard water can cause scaling on sinks and fixtures, deposits in hot water heaters and pipes, and buildup in pumps and water using appliances, which can shorten appliance life. Hard water can be treated with a water softener which can remove a significant amount of the calcium and magnesium from the water.
