Is 25 TDS Safe for Drinking Water?

By DrowWater

Today, we delve into the crucial question of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in drinking water and its impact on human health.

Understanding TDS

TDS measures dissolved substances in water, affecting taste, odor, and quality. Includes minerals, salts, and organic matter. Critical for water assessment.

Recommended TDS Levels

WHO recommends drinking water with TDS below 600 ppm. Ideal range: 0-300 ppm is excellent; 300-600 ppm is acceptable.

Impact on Health

Balance is key: Some minerals enhance water's nutrition, but excessive TDS may signal contamination. Health risks include GI problems and an unpleasant taste.

Factors Influencing TDS

TDS originates from natural sources such as minerals in soil and rocks. Human activities, including pollution and industrial discharges, can markedly raise TDS levels.


TDS is vital; 25 TDS is generally safe for drinking water. Recommendations: Regularly test and monitor water quality to ensure ongoing safety.
