Company Announces Consumer Education In Testing Of Household And Drinking Water
Consumer education on water testing is more important today as clean water becomes a global issue.
Sid Scheck does a detailed product review on the Digital Aid TDS-EC Meter. He tests 3 water samples: tap water, fridge filtered water and Nestle's Bottled water. He was astonished at what he found.
Water safety is being recognized as a serious issue with incidents such as this report from Associate Press, June 19, 2014: "North Carolina: Duke Energy Was Warned About Pipe: That pipe collapsed in February, setting off a spill that coated 70 miles of the Dan River in toxic sludge." After the disaster, Duke said it did not know that section of pipe was made of metal, believing that it was made of more durable reinforced concrete. North Carolina Utilities Commission has opened a criminal investigation into the spill.
In a statement to press, Ms. Loretta Green said: "Many Americans have at least some knowledge of these issues and thus a concern that their city water is problematic, yet they don't know where to begin. The TDS meter, which tests for 'Total Dissolved Solids', can be a first step in determining if there's a problem. The information we provide often answers for consumers questions that are already on their minds."
Ms. Green maintains that consumers should frequently check all waters they consume: bottled, drinking fountain, portable filter water, reverse osmosis and tap water. Only distilled water is always 0 ppm. Basic water consists of hydrogen and oxygen (H2O) and other elements, both organic and inorganic, can be problematic.
The company has produced a chart to illustrate the varying levels of TDS in water.
The Digital Aid is a “Combo Test meter”: it measures the particle count or TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) as well as the EC (Electrical Conductivity) and Temperature. It will thus give consistent readings despite temperature fluctuations of the water being tested. Its range is from 0-5000 ppm (parts per million).
Ms. Green noted that earlier this year the simple measuring of Electrical Conductivity was recognized in the "Journal of Tropical and Agricultural Sciences" as a valid test for even the most polluted waters. The research investigated whether the single parameter of EC could be used instead of the more complex current tests used in Malaysia to measure water pollution. Researchers from Universiti Putra Malaysia, took nine periodic samplings at eight sites along the Malaysian Langat river, including both polluted downstream and unpolluted upstream sites. The results show that there are consistently higher levels of electrical conductivity in the more polluted downstream, and this was in line with two current measures -- dissolved oxygen and suspended solids.
Thus they concluded that this very simple Electrical Conductivity test is suitable to estimate even very high levels of water pollution.
The TDS-EC meter is very useful to test all household water: tap, fridge, portable, fish tanks, ponds, hydroponics, pools and spas. It is an indicator: if the particle count, for that particular application is out of range, it can be adjusted depending on the situation. With drinking water it may simply require a change of filters or RO membrane. For household water it might require the installation of a water softener or the maintenance of existing equipment.
Measuring TDS and EC in water is especially important for people who are on well water.
Due to customer feedback, the company will soon be releasing an improved version: one that is waterproof.
