Just tested NYC water coming out of our pipes (Bklyn to be specific) with a Digital TDS Meter and the reading I got was 21 PPM
After I Purified it I got a clean reading of 1 PPM
Anyone else getting similar , worse or better before and after?

A little worse here in Manhattan. I consistently get 32 ppm right out of the tap and then 0 ppm after it runs through my 5 stage R/O D/I.

UES=35-45 from tap water.
I think its the old Manhattan pipes that cause most of the PPM (My water is almost brown from rusting pipes after a vacation for a few seconds)
