What do total solids, dissolved solids, and suspended solids in water mean?

All impurities in water except dissolved gases are called solids. The solids in water can be divided into dissolved solids and suspended solids. The sum of these two is called the total solids of water. Dissolved solids refer to various inorganic salts, organic substances, etc. that are still dissolved in water after the water is filtered. Suspended solids refer to suspended substances such as silt, clay, organic matter, and microorganisms that are insoluble in water. The determination of total solids is obtained by evaporating and weighing. Therefore, the selected evaporation temperature has a great relationship, and it is generally stipulated to be controlled at 105~110℃
