TDS Meters and its Uses The use of TDS meters for determining the purity of fresh water has become widespread over the recent years. Most aquarists use these meters to determine if tap water purification systems such reverse osmosis/deionization (RO/Dip) or reverse osmosis (RO) are working properly or if there is a need for the deionizing resins to be replaced. Using these devices, however, does not come with complications. Contrary to what the name might imply, the devices do not measure all the dissolved solids. In this article, we will look at how these meters work, what they detect and what they don’t. It also offers some tips on how to best use the TDS meters. How they Operate TTDS meters work as conductivity meters. The meters work by using a voltage of between two or more electrodes. Ions that are positively charged will move towards the negatively charged electrode while the positively charged electrode will attract negatively charged ions. These ions have an electric current because they are charged and are moving. The work of the meter here is to monitor how much current is passing between the electrodes as a gauge of how many ions are in the solution.

TDS meters only detect mobile charged ions and will not detect any neutral compounds such as alcohol, sugar, and unionized forms of silica, ammonia and carbon dioxide. The meters do not also detect macroscopic particulates as they are too large to move in the electric fields applied.

How to Use TDS Meters Make sure that you rinse the business end of the TDS meter prior and after each use with clean, fresh water. Salt Build up on the operational tip will interfere with proper operation and any transfer of salts from one solution to the other can skew the readings.The buildup of salts is likely to interfere with proper operation and carrying over salts from one solution to another can distort the readings. Clean the electrodes by soaking the tip in acid like diluted hydrochloric acid or vinegar and then rinse it well in water. If is heavily covered in organic material, soaking the tip in bleach or alcohol may help. When using the TDS meter to measure the performance of Reverse Osmosis membrane, then the measured value should drop by at least a factor of 10 from the staring tap water. For example, if the tap water reads 231ppm, the RO water should be less than 23ppm. Less of a drop than the factor of 10 shows that the RO membrane has a problem. If the meter is being used to monitor the performance of an RO/DI system, the measured value should drop to near zero. If the values are higher, it only means that there is something that is not operating well or the DI resin is becoming saturated and requires replacement. Do not agonize over a 1ppm reading from pure water since the air has some elements of carbon dioxide which get in the water and ionizes it causing a higher meter reading.
