Sodium Chloride in Water


Source of Sodium Chloride in Water: Chloride in water is one of the major anions found in tap water and generally combines with calcium, magnesium, or sodium. Sodium chloride (NaCl) is one of the most common contaminants found in tap water. It is generally the result of salt water intrusion, road salt runoff and sewage runoffs. Well owners near roads or road salting storage facilities are especially at risk for high levels of sodium chloride. 

Symptoms of Sodium Chloride: Water high in sodium chloride will taste unpleasant and can damage plants, if used for watering or irrigation. It is also highly corrosive and can damage plumbing, causing toxic metals to leach into the water. Water high in sodium chloride can damage appliances and hot water heaters over time. Drinking water with sodium chloride can contribute to high blood pressure and affect those with heart problems. The American Heart Association has recommended a maximum sodium level of 20 mg/l in drinking water for patients with hypertension or cardiovascular disease. The EPA has no maximuum contaminant level published for sodium levels in water; however, they do suggest a level of 20 mg/l in drinking water for those on severe sodium restricted diets of 500 mg/day or less.
Filtration Solutions for Sodium Chloride: Reverse osmosis water filtration systems will remove 90-95% of the sodium chloride from drinking water because of their salt rejection capabilities. Water Distillers are also effective in reducing sodium chloride. The contaminant, along with other contaminants, will be left behind as the filtered water is distills into the final holding container. If you are concerned about the amount of sodium chloride that may be in your water, our simple testing kit below will reveal the amount of this and other contaminants. A TDS Meter can also be used to test the levels of sodium and other dissolved solids. For further assistance selecting a water filtration for your home or business, call our customer service representatives or click on the "Chat Now" button below.
