Hot water dissolved solid levels
The cold water enters the water boiler and thenis heated by contact with the heating elements. Under heat and pressure, there is a transfer of metals from the heating elements and other components of the boiler. The extent of the transfer clearly depends on a number of factors , which include:
- pH of the water - the more acidic the water is, the more likelihood of sufficient aggressiveness to corrode metal from the boiler
- Chlorine level - chlorine is an aggressive and corrosive chemical used to kill bacteria. When exposed to new pipes, chlorine has a strong corrosive affect. The more chlorine in your water, the larger the separation between your cold and hot water TDS .
