The Eva fountain and the tds and th of the water

About the Eva filter:

The objective of the EVA fountain is not to reduce the limestone of your water (combination of calcium and magnesium). Only an osmosis at this functionality, with the disadvantage of withdrawing the minerals your body needs. To know the filtered elements and the results of water analyzes, provides you EVA analysis table

Some consumption recommendations: 

On a daily basis, there are some simple rules of consumption and use of tap water:

- Let the water run before consuming it when it stagnated in the pipes, from a few seconds to two minutes (in the event of prolonged stagnation, after several days of absence, for example);

- Use water from the cold water network for drink, preparation or cooking food: a high temperature can promote the transfer in the water of metals which constitute the pipes and the degradation of bacteriological quality;

- Leave the tap water in an open carafe for a few hours in the refrigerator to eliminate a possible taste of chlorine.

In the absence of specific instructions from the distribution manager, the mayor or the ARS (or possibly the doctor for infants), tap water can be consumed without risk.

The hardness of the water:

corresponds to the calcium and magnesium content naturally present in water. It is measured in mg of calcium carbonate per liter or in PPM / liter. If your water contains less than 60 ppm/l, your water is considered very soft.

The TDS* express all of the minerals dissolved in water, salts, metals, cations or anion, including any element present in water other than H2O molecules, including the solid suspended elements. The measurement is expressed in PPM.

900 - 1200


Over 1200

The WHO recommends the drink of natural freshwater so little mineralized. On the other hand, it strongly advises against the consumption of softened water (water softener), because it has too many sodium ions which are harmful for health, especially for people with cardiovascular conditions.
