  2. Drinking Water Quality

What is acceptable drinking water quality?

Aquablu recommends treating your tap water when it has a TDS level of 400 PPM (or higher).

The accepted levels of drinking water vary for each location. We would recommend treating your tap water when:

  • The TDS level is 400 PPM (or higher)
  • When there is a slight risk of lead contamination, due to water pipes built into Old Homes and Cities
  • When you live in an area with an agricultural or heavy industry.
  • When you use rainwater as your freshwater source
  • When you use groundwater as your freshwater source
