The appearance of total dissolved solids in your drinking water can leave a lot to be desired. Your water could taste salty. It could taste bitter. Not at all like you want your water to taste. But what does it mean when your water has a high level of total dissolved solids?
(That’s TDS, by the way. Write that down.)
Well, TDS is the presence of dissolved minerals in your water, most often calcium, potassium and sodium. These dissolved minerals can find their way into your drinking water a few ways — through seawater intrusion in coastal areas, natural sources like rocks, bedrocks and soils, or even road salt. However it gets in, the reaction should be the same: you don’t want it there. Other than poor tasting water, high TDS can increase corrosion and scaling in your plumbing and appliances.
That’s where your Culligan Man can help. First, he can help you find out whether high TDS is even an issue in your home. With any luck, it’s not! But if so, you have options, and your Culligan Man can help determine the right one for you. Find your Culligan Man today!
