A Brief Overview of TDS and its Relevance to Drinking Water

TDS level in the water

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.

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.

The mineral water we drink today is not as pure as we would want it to be. Riddled with impurities, contaminants, and chemicals, a glass of water can prove to be harmful if not appropriately purified. When it comes to understanding water and its components, you must understand TDS.

TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids and refers to the total amount of dissolved salts in water – including chloride, calcium, sodium and magnesium. These salts are naturally present in types of water but when they are dissolved in water they can become toxic to humans as well as plants.

What is TDS?

The Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level in drinking water is a measurement of the total amount of dissolved substances in your drinking water. 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.

The recommended range for TDS is between 0-50 mg/L. When your tap water has a TDS level above 50 mg/L it can cause issues with your health such as stomach problems and skin rashes.

Importance of TDS in Drinking Water

Drinking water with a high concentration of dissolved solids (TDS) is saltier than pure water. The TDS test measures the amount of dissolved salts in your water. The higher the amount of TDS, the more concentrated the water is.

The primary source of 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

What are 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. One PPM is one thousandth of a gram per liter.

TDS Level Chart for Drinking Water

TDS Level in parts per million(ppm) Palatability Quotient

Between 50-150                                   Excellent for drinking

150-250                                                 Good

250-300                                                 Fair

300-500                                                 Poor

Above 1200                                          Unacceptable

Why Should You Measure TDs Levels?

TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids, which is the total amount of dissolved salts and minerals in water.

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).
  • Health 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)
