Know About Water Parameter
PH – Water is classified as acidic or basic depending on its pH value, which ranges from 7 to 8.5. A pH of 7 is regarded as being pure, and a range of 6.5-8.5 is advised.
Hardness – Hardness is the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium. Soft water can cause corrosion of your plumbing and appliances. Hard water can cause residue buildup and difficulties using soap.
Nitrite – Nitrites come from fertilizers through the runoff of water and sewage deposits. They can stimulate the growth of harmful bacteria.
Total Alkalinity – Alkalinity is the level of dissolved minerals in your water that help neutralize acidity. Water with low levels of alkalinity is more likely to be corrosive, and high levels can cause scaling.
Total Chlorine – Chlorine is added to drinking water to kill disease causing pathogens. Total chlorine is the amount of Free Chlorine + Used chlorine (chloramines) in your water. Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting are common side effects of ingesting too much chlorine.
