Something You Should Know about TDS (Hint: It's not a cable channel)

Sunday, March 12, 2017 - by Water2Drink

You may have heard about water filtration pitchers or filter systems that claim to remove Total Dissolved Solids from drinking water. While this may sound like a benefit and perhaps convince you to purchase that product, let’s take a look at the bigger picture.

While scary sounding on a marketing label, total dissolved solids (TDS) bear a little more examination. According to the World Health Organization, “TDS in water supplies originate from natural sources, sewage, urban and agricultural run-off, and industrial #wastewater. Salts used for road de-icing can also contribute to the TDS loading of water supplies.”  Of course, this type of #TDS would certainly be considered harmful.  However, the #WHO also states that the term total dissolved solids, “describe(s) the inorganic salts and small amounts of organic matter present in solution in water. The principal constituents are usually calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium cations and carbonate, hydrogencarbonate, chloride, sulfate, and nitrate anions.” Many of these are actually dissolved minerals that are vital to the health of the human body.

We here at #Water2Drink want to share this short, informative video from Multipure International. In it, Kenton Jones, Vice President of Marketing, demonstrates that, while certain #water samples are shown to contain no TDS, those samples are indeed most harmful to your health!

The Multipure family of Drinking Water Systems is NSF-tested and certified to reduce turbidity and submicron particulate matter.  However, #Multipure Drinking Water Systems do NOT remove the healthful dissolved minerals that your body needs, such as calcium, sodium and magnesium. 

Please be sure to evaluate all health claims of the drinking water system you may be considering. is your resource that is available to help you look past the marketing hype and pinpoint the Multipure filter that is right for you.
