Conductivity at 25degC mS/m
Not a health issue. Only appearance.
Water Conductivity description.
- Conductivity is the measure of water's capability to pass electrical flow.
- The ability of electrical flow is directly related to the concentration of ions in the water source.
- These ions that conducted the electrical flow come from dissolved salts and inorganic materials such as sulphides, alkalis, chlorides and carbonate compounds
- Pure water is not a very good conductor of electricity.
- For instance ordinary distilled water in equilibrium with carbon dioxide of the air has a conductivity of about 10 x 10-6 W-1*m-1 (20 dS/m).
- Because the electrical current is transported by the ions in solution, the conductivity increases as the concentration of ions increases. Reverse osmosis water also fall in this range.
Typical conductivity of waters:
- Ultra pure water 5.5 · 10-6 S/m
- Drinking water 0.005 – 0.05 S/m
- Sea water 5 S/m
This is not a health issue. The water would not appear that appealing if this reading is above the norm.
