Detecting heavy metals in drinking water
HM Digital’s QC-1 is a “Push-to-Test” TDS monitor designed to monitor the effectiveness of any water purification and filtration system that removes TDS. The unit is battery operated and can be easily installed in minutes. It has eight programmable settings (by dip switch) for either TDS or conductivity. Once installed, a user simply needs to press the button. If the TDS level is below the set point, a green light will be illuminated. If above the set point, a red light will display, indicating service is required. It’s backed by a one-year warranty.
