No, some level of tds is not required in the boiler, unless
it is an electric boiler. Theoretically, it would be
great to have zero tds in boiler water. And RO water
is used to feed boilers, and as EPA requirements become
more stringent, RO or demineralizer systems will
eventually become very common. Vern

: Yes, the chemical treatment does add to the TDS,
: as you have stated, but I think I phrased my question
: badly.
: What I meant to ask was, "Is TDS required in the
: boiler water" ? Meaning, if you used say, RO Water
: to feed your boiler, would this cause a problem ?
: You would still have some TDS in your boiler water,
: but it would only be from the chemical treatment.

: I guess what I mean is, is some level of TDS acutally
: required in the boiler water ? Again, assuming you could
: actually maintain it at 0 TDS.
