I had to be patient to receive this. It felt like a slow boat from China. But now that I have the meter I am delighted with it. Fast response time. I haven't tested its accuracy as I'm only interested in relative readings to see how the water changes over time in order to give me an indicator as to when to change the water filter.

After doing a paper on 'Water' and really looking into it, I now distill all the water I consume and cook with.
(You will not believe what is in it.)
I use this it to check that it's just H2O that comes out of my distiller.
My tap water test at 639ppm, filtered water at 298ppm and my distilled at 000ppm, just pure water.

This little gadget is spot on, and I use it daily :)

I have always used test strips, which are not that accurate and rely on colour comparison by eye to obtain a rough measure. This was a great purchase and gives an accurate reading everytime. Highly recommended.

I use the TDS Gauge in order to let me know when the level of fluoride is increasing in my tap water (fluoridated West Midlands). When the Reverse Osmosis filters and memrane are new, the tds, is about 2 ppm. When they are at expiry, the tds level is approx 40 tds - or rather that is when I decide to change the filters. Sometimes, this doesn't happen for 9-12 months. It is recommended to change the filters every 6 months and the mebrane every 12 months. Therefore, by purchasing and using the tds gauge, I gradually save money over the years.

Good piece of kit, does exactly what is required of it and was very impressed with the price as you will not find it as cheap anywhere else. Gives me a reading in about two seconds!

Purchased this TDS meter from WELA and it arrived within 3 days. Besides the simple, clear instruction sheet included, the device was in a neat carry case with a leather look finish, so it was better than described.

Very simple to use as device is pre-calibrated and auto compensates for water temperature. Just press the ON button to prepare to test, dip uncovered end into water sample, allow a few seconds for stable display, press hold button and lift out to easily read the ppm. The readout is only three figures, but the screen displays a x10 for reading above 999. Auto off, if you don't switch off, so it helps save the batteries, which are 2x button cell type.

I bought this tester to give some reassurance of quality of output from the water distiller I recently purchased. ViaFosa Water Distiller With Glass Jug The reading for several samples was consistently 2ppm, so great quality, compared to the tap water the distiller was filled with, which was around 450ppm! The water where I live has some limescale, but is not very hard, only mildly. According to various official sources the safety of water becomes questionable at around 500ppm. Prior to buying the distiller I drank a popular British bottled water with a low bicarbonate level and that gave a reading of 58ppm. That was good, but one of my concerns about water in plastic bottles was regarding the possibility of plastic contaminants leaching into the water, but that also affects the tap water too, since many mains pipes have been replaced with plastic in recent years.

A TDS tester is great for a quick assessment of water quality, but it doesn't give any detailed information on what makes up those parts per million, so you have to use other information from various sources, including the official local water test results to make your own informed decisions. I would recommend this tester, especially from WELA, as a great value device to give you a good indication of water quality from a whole range of sources.

As others have said it took a while to arrive from the Far East via Switzerland. Simple to use. Seems to be fairly accurate. Mine reads zero for distilled water, 172 for Evian mineral water, 311 water from cold tap and 369 for warmer water from hot tap.

I've just tested this item against some samples we use in the lab I work in and it looks like the device is calibrated perfectly - it gave a reading of 2 ppm with 'ultrapure' water and 0 ppm with the industial-grade filtration system we use (tap water going in the top end was 140 ppm). For the price I think this is a brilliant little gadget. Now to figure out why my tapwater at home tastes so awful...!

This item is not a PH device, it may have flagged up along side other PH stciks but it is not, it is a Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) device.
If you live outside of the United Kingdom expect to wait between 4-6 weeks because of international shipping.

This is a simple device, no real instructions provided unless you can read Chinese, however its so simple you dont need them, a little research should tell you that filtered water is usually around 240ppm, distilled water is 0ppm. I tried mine on some mineral water 450ppm and tap water at home was an amazing 92ppm! Of course your tap water is not chlorine free and may have nasty flouride in it so this needs to be taken into account, fortunately my tap water does not contain fluoride and chlorine can easily be evaporated off by bottling with a loose cap and placing in a fridge or filling a glass jug up and leaving out for a while.
