What unit is conductivity measured in?
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|
