Come monsoon and the situation in the Hindon river is truly troubling. Large stretches of the river continue to suffer toxic contamination. An article by Baishali Adak in Daily Mail Online (UK) last year showed images of the effluent-laden river in the 30 km stretch in Ghaziabad.

Hi ,

I am confused , hence request you to send in your suggestion

We use water from a borewell ,the TDS meter reading is 500 ppm, & we are using RO of a reknowned company. Shall we continue to use the RO or not , as the TDS is under the permissible limits which i have read on some blogs? Our RO output water has TDS of 50 ppm , are we loosing out on some essential minerals? Can we ask the technicain to increase the TDS to some extent?

Please guide on the same.

Thanks
