What is Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)?
TDS is used as a general indicator of water quality.
As the name describes, TDS tests measure the amount of all dissolved
solids in the water. These solids are primarily minerals/salts,
but can also include organic matter.
does TDS come from?
The amount of TDS in the water depends on where the water comes
Water that passes through soils high in soluble salts or minerals
have higher TDS levels. Also, higher TDS levels occur when water
receives agricultural or urban run-off.
