Water is the most crucial need for humans. Without water, the human body cannot work. Every system of the body, from cells to tissues, needs water to function correctly.
But what if you found that your water has high TDS, which can cause many diseases? So, not only water but healthy and safe water is what we all need!
Modern innovation and technology introduced us to different kinds of water purifiers that are available in the market.
This article will tell you which water purifier you should buy if your water has high TDS. But first of all, let’s understand what TDS is?
What Does High TDS Mean?
TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) are the number of dissolved solids in the water such as calcium, magnesium, sulfide, lead, and many more. Some are present naturally in the water, and some get added through Municipal Water Treatment Plants.
A TDS level indicates how much of such particles are present in your water. Surprisingly, having TDS doesn’t make the water harmful; however, a high amount of dissolved solids is dangerous for the human body.
TDS usually depends on the water source.
- Municipal Water: If your water source is rivers, lakes, and other municipal sources, TDS ranges from 1-200 ppm.
- Underground water: If your water source is underground water, wells, or borewells, TDS ranges from 200-2000 ppm.
According to WHO, a TDS level below 200 ppm in water is safe to consume; however, it becomes unhealthy for drinking if your water has more than 500 ppm TDS level. Let’s see on the TDS Level Chart.
Drinking-Water TDS Level Chart
|TDS Level (in ppm)||Palatability Quotient|
|Less than 300||Excellent To Drink|
|Above 1200||Unacceptable Quality|
Water Purifiers according to TDS Level
Now comes the role of water purifiers in more than 200 ppm TDS levels in the water. There are many types of water purifiers available in the market; some of them are:
- Gravity Water Purifier
- UV Water Purifier
- RO Water Purifier
However, not all of them are capable of removing excess TDS levels in the water. So, according to the TDS levels, the ideal type of water purifiers are:
|Sr.No.||TDS Level||Ideal Water Purifier|
|1.||Less than 200 ppm||UF/ UV/UF+UV|
|3.||Above 1000 ppm||RO/ RO+UV|
So, out of all water purifiers, the most efficient and effective in eliminating excess TDS levels from the water is RO Water Purifiers.
An RO (Reverse Osmosis) Water Purifiers are filtration systems that use Reverse Osmosis Technology. It helps remove a high level of TDS in water and makes the water 100% pure and safe.
It has proven efficient in removing chlorine, salt, calcium, magnesium, sulfide, barium, iron, lead, manganese, and other inorganic dissolved substances in water.
Besides this, it can also prevent water from harmful bacteria, viruses, and ill-causing pathogens in the water.

It can purify water having up to 2000 ppm of TDS level so, it is suitable for all kinds of water such as borewell, tankers, and tap water.
Thanks to its multiple levels of filtration stages, it is also effective in purifying water with higher than 2000 ppm TDS levels.
High storage capacity is suitable for large families as the storage tank can hold 9 liters of water. The only disadvantage is its high price, i.e., Rs. 17, 199.
PROVEN® Alkaline + ORP with Active Copper + RO + UV + TDS Controller/Adjuster RO Water Purifier
