Water Rangers conductivity meters measure the conductivity of freshwater in µS, or microsiemens.
Water will measure different results of conductivity depending on it’s condition, shown below;
|Distilled water||0.5 – 3 µS|
|Melted snow||2 – 42 µS|
|Has effects on fish reproduction||over 500 µS|
|Tap water||50 – 800 µS|
|Potable water||30 – 1500 µS|
|Freshwater streams||100 – 1,000 µS|
|Industrial wastewater||10,000 µS|
|Sea water||55,000 µS|
