It is very important to measure and monitor the TDS level of Aqua pond water on a regular basis for the following reasons,

  • (a) to check the condition of your water source, filters, and pipelines,

  • (c)It is mandatory to maintain the water parameters in a Swimming pool and Fishpond and any such changes shall be noted and corrective action shall be taken at the earliest opportunity.

For drinking waters the TDS levels ideally should be between 300 -500 PPM And One should not drink water with TDS levels below 80 PPM.

A high level of TDS is an indicator of potential concerns and should be addressed with utmost care. Most often, high levels of TDS are caused by the presence of common salts like potassium, chlorides and sodium.

These ions have some negligible or nil immediate effects on the pond ecology. But toxic ions like mercury and lead may also be dissolved in the water can have serious consequences.

Therefore it is adviced that the water samples should be sent for detailed analysis at regular intervals or whenever deemed necessary.

Even the best water purification and Biofiltration systems are mandatorily require monitoring for TDS to ensure the filters and/or membranes are performing effectively as designed our water.

Calibration of TDS metres is equally important since calibrated TDS metre will give a more accurate reading and will increase the life of the equipment. It is recommended to calibrate your equipment every 3 months or after every 10 to 20 test.
