Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), PH, & Turbidity Levels
Our processes monitor water quality levels including Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) to ensure that your drinking water remains inside accepted safe levels. Total Dissolved Solids refer to any minerals, metals, salts, cations or anions dissolved in water. This includes anything present in water other that the pure water (H2O) molecule and suspended solids (suspended solids are any particles / substances that are neither dissolved nor settled in the water, such as wood pulp). PH and Turbidity levels are monitored and measured as well.
In general, the total dissolved solids concentration is the sum of the cations (positively charged) and anioins (negatively charged) ions in the water. Parts per million (ppm) is the weight-to-weight ratio of any ion to water.
