TDS: What Is It And Why Is It Important?

19 Feb 2018

Water is no doubt the most remarkable solvent on this planet, without which even the imagination of life is not possible. However, clean drinking water that you see everyday isn’t always pure and germ-free. There may be different types of impurities, which include chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals which can cause different type of health issues once consumed.

No doubt healthy drinking water should hold plenty of minerals which are essential to lead a healthy life. However, if your water holds excess amount of minerals, then it will do more harms than good. Henceforth, your drinking water should have very balanced TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) limits. High level of TDS isn’t good for our health at all.

What’s TDS (Total Dissolved Solids?)

The fresh water you see on the soil or ground dissolves nearly every type of minerals available under the soil or ground. The soil is generally contaminated by chemicals, wastage overflows, and pesticides that are discharged from homes and industrial units. When the water goes via metallic pipelines, it receives more solid compounds that get suspended in it. Identically, the groundwater goes through some layers of the soil and receives and suspends minerals as it passes through. The dissolved contaminants exist in the water now is known as TDS (Total Dissolved Solids). TDS has some really common chemical components including calcium, nitrates, phosphates, sodium, potassium, chloride, fluoride and iron.

What’s the most favorable TDS level?

As per WHO (World Health Organization) water that has a TDS level lower than 300mg/l should be measured as the perfect level & is drinkable. TDS level under 1000mg/l, with its highest concentration is found to be satisfactory for drinking purposes. Nonetheless, depending upon the circumstances, the limit of acceptance for the minimum TDS of drinking water occasionally vary. People experiencing kidney issues should consume pure water which has a TDS level lower than 100 mg/l.

So, what’s the solution?

Though there’re different water purification systems available in the market at present but you can control the levels of TDS in drinking water by using reverse osmosis (RO) water purification system only. Reverse Osmosis eliminates TDS by forcing the water, under pressure, via a synthetic membrane. The membrane features atomic pores which will let only molecules tinnier than 0.0001 microns to go through. As molecules of dissolves salts and metals are large in comparison to the water molecules, water compresses through the membrane leaving the salts and metals behind.

AQUAVITA provides the most reliable RO water purifiers that will not just make your drinking water healthy but also assure to maintain the perfect TDS level.
