Pros and Cons: Total Dissolved Solids in Water

Total dissolved solids (TDS) refers to the amount of ionized solids that have been dissolved in a solution. If you were to add table salt to a glass of water, the salt granules would eventually dissolve, making it difficult to gauge how much salt was present.

5 Things Not Commonly Known About TDS in Water

TDS stands for total dissolved solids. Like the name suggests, TDS testers allow users to evaluate the amount of ionized solids dissolved in a liquid or solution without going through the trouble of evaporating the liquid and weighing the residual elements. H2O has a TDS value of zero—in other words, there are no dissolved elements in pure water that have an electrical charge. Because ionized solids will boost the electrical conductivity (EC) of water, the amount of TDS is gauged using an electrical current that measures EC levels.
