Total Dissolved Solids

Total dissolved solids (TDS) is a measure of all of the dissolved organic and inorganic particles in water. In Michigan, TDS in well water is usually calcium, lime, magnesium, or sodium. While some level of TDS in water is normal, high levels are detrimental to plumbing and fixtures. Depending on the dissolved material, high TDS levels can also cause health problems and give the water a bad taste. Adams Well Drilling will carefully study your water, assessing the TDS levels and identifying anything harmful to your health or property.

Why Are TDS Levels Important to Test?

TDS levels are something of an indicator of the overall quality of your water. 250 TDS parts per million is normal, and indicates that your water is good quality. However, if your water has over 500 TDS ppm, we recommend reverse osmosis, which is a water purification system that removes all types of TDS. As a highly-effective filter, reverse osmosis will dramatically improve the quality of your water.
