Question: Is bottled water or filtered water better?
Answer: 90% of bottled water are Reverse Osmosis, this is a “Hungry Water” in other words, the water is devoid of minerals therefore, this is a acid water with a low pH of 5.5 to 6.4. The regulations to ensuring bottled water quality is the same as the city drinking water regulations, which is so low that almost all bottled water companies will do some form of extra filtration. It is a self-policed industry for the most part.
Question: What is TDS?
Answer: Total Dissolved Solids, the total measurement by weight of all solids that are dissolved in water. The dissolved solids in water are primarily calcium and magnesium and would not be a measurement of contamination. Tests which measure the conductivity of water (often used by companies selling reverse osmosis and distillation system) only give a rough estimate of dissolved solids, mostly minerals, and do not show water quality. RO water usually have 50ppm (parts per million or less) Implying that these tests show water quality is highly misleading and should be considered unethical.
