About water purifier
In the article "China Electronics" provided information on standards for water purifiers:

"Some industries have set their own standards for the water purifier. Sometimes these standards are different, standards of enterprises or organizations for the same device can be different. For example, for the RO water processing device - Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, state oceanographic administration, State Organization of sanitary safety devices, Ministry of Environmental Protection of the People's Republic of China and others, they all have their own IST (industry standard).

Now the Technical Committee for Standardization of equipment for light industry confirmed that the company will install Media Standard RO water purifier; Standardization

Technical Committee approved the household appliances, the company Qin Yuan set the IST (industry standard) RO water purifier. Thus, in China it can be seven standards for apparatus of the RO water peocessing requirements and the contents of which may be different from each other, and sometimes contradictory. Although the standards for the same product and lot, but the content of most of them is not quite appropriate. Standards are not objective, companies are not doing their job properly, and the organization of technical control also are not commenting. "

The full name of the tester TDS - Total Dissolved Solids, which is used for the determination in water the amount of solid substances, for example mineral salts and organic substances, the unit which is part per million (ppm). Basically, by checking the electrical conductivity and is determined by the purity of water.
