Problem Water Series: Total Dissolved Solids

Many problem water issues occur naturally. Have you ever come across rocks covered in white sediment? Seen little water spots on your car right after having it washed? This can be an example of Total Dissolved Solids in your water, or TDS.

What is TDS? Simply put, TDS is the presence of dissolved minerals in your water, most often calcium, potassium and sodium. Although TDS is a natural phenomenon, it can still negatively affect the taste and quality of drinking water in the home; especially when it exists in high or low concentrations (1). Because these total dissolved solids are just that, dissolved, they are often not effectively removed from water by some filtering techniques, which may only remove solids, chemicals, and sediments from water. Typically, TDS removal can happen either at the point-of-entry, where the water supply comes into your home, with something such as a whole home water treatment system. Alternatively, TDS can be addressed with a point-of-use system, where the water is treated right where it is used, with an under-sink reverse osmosis system.

At Culligan, we offer several solutions to reduce TDS in water, including both point-of-entry whole home filters and softeners and point-of-use water filtration systems. If you think you have TDS in your water, Culligan has the testing capability, local water knowledge, skills and products to best address your water needs.

The Culligan Aqua Cleer Drinking Water System is one example. With its advanced filtration, including reverse osmosis, the system is completely customizable to fit your household water needs, resulting in great tasting drinking water. If you are looking to fix water issues in your home or business, your Culligan Man can help. Just say “Hey, Culligan Man!”

*Total Dissolved Solids and other contaminants and impurities are not necessarily in your water.
