Navigating Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in Your Pool or Spa

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) refer to the cumulative amount of all substances dissolved in your pool or spa water. Factors such as pH-adjusting chemicals, chlorine, water hardness, alkalinity, as well as environmental elements like dust, dirt, and organic matter, contribute to the TDS level.

For swimming pools, the TDS level should ideally remain below 1,500 parts per million (ppm). Beyond this threshold, you may observe staining, diminished effectiveness of added chemicals, and cloudiness in the water.

Addressing high TDS levels can be challenging. The most effective method is to partially or fully drain the pool and refill it with fresh, low-TDS water. Additionally, maintaining a routine of regular backwashing can help keep TDS levels in check and ensure a clearer, more enjoyable swimming experience.
