Hello QomariyahIndonesia,


TDS / total dissolved solid is a dissolved solid in the form of inorganic salt and other organic content in water. Generally TDS less than 300 is good enough for drinking water. But until now there has not been much scientific data on the effect of TDS on certain health conditions.


As for the water surrounded by ants, this cannot be a benchmark as to whether the water is suitable for drinking or not.


For your own drinking water, you can consume bottled water without boiling it. If you consume ground water or water from a drinking water supply company, it would be better to keep boiling the water until it boils and then cools it down.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
