What is TDS (total dissolved solids)?

TDS is a measure of all inorganic and organic substances dissolved in the water. High measurements of TDS generally indicate hard water and which hinders the detergent’s cleaning ability. TDS is measured in parts per million (ppm) or mg per liter. TDS usually does not affect cleaning unless it is very high, over 1,500 ppm.
