TDS Readings with Reverse Osmosis
RO system is a highly effective
... water purification method that can remove a wide range of contaminants from water, including dissolved solids, bacteria, viruses, and heavy metals.
The goal of a reverse osmosis system is to produce water with a very low total dissolved solids (TDS) level. The TDS level is a measure of the total amount of dissolved minerals, salts, and other materials in water. The ideal TDS level for water produced by a reverse osmosis system is typically around 50-100 mg/L, but the specific level will depend on the system and the water source.
It's important to note that the TDS level of the water produced by a reverse osmosis system will depend on the TDS level of the water source before treatment. For example, if the TDS level of the water source is high, the water produced by the reverse osmosis system will also have a higher TDS level.
It is also important to keep in mind that while the TDS level is a good indicator of the efficiency of the reverse osmosis system, it is not the only parameter to consider. It is also important to check for other potential contaminants like bacteria, viruses, heavy metals and other dissolved solids that could still be present in the water even if the TDS level is low.
To ensure that your reverse osmosis system is functioning properly, it's important to have it regularly checked and maintained by a professional. Clean H2O Pro's offers water testing that will be able to measure the TDS level of the water produced by the system and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that it is producing water with the desired level of purity.
Overall, a reverse osmosis system should produce water with a very low TDS level, typically around 50-100 mg/L, but the specific level will depend on the system and the water source. It is important to regularly check and maintain your reverse osmosis system to ensure it is working efficiently and producing water with the desired level of purity.
