What is the Lynxtech HM Digital TDS-3TM? It is a water quality temperature electrical tester than comes with a digital thermometer LCD display. It is ideal for commercial use, and comes with a carrying case with a belt clip in its standard packaging. It includes a hold function as part of its feature set which saves measurements for easier readings and recordings. It is claimed to have a highly efficient and accurate readout due to its advanced Microprocessor technology. While it does certainly do its job, this is not your all-in-one device. This device is a great deal for what it can do, and it is able to do what it intends to do quite well.
The Lynxtech HM Digital TDS-3TM Aims for Convenience Rather Than All-in-One Functionality
For its dimensions, the Lynxtech HM Digital TDS-3TM measures in at 6.3 x 1.5 x 1.5-inches and has a weight of 2.6-ounces. This means that it is small and lightweight enough to carry around inside your pocket.
For what it’s worth, the Lynxtech HM Digital TDS-3TM TDS Meter Water Quality Temperature Electrical Tester is able to do what it can do well, and that is to test your water for impurities. Using the device could not get any easier than it already is. Tests come out consistent, and it has a build quality which is sure to make the product last for a good long while.
The sensors built into the device measure the Total Dissolved Solids or TDS. These are the total amount of mobile charge ions which include, salts, metals, or minerals that may have been dissolved in a given volume of water. It will be measured in parts per million or ppm.
While it delivers consistent readings, it depends on the temperature of the water. Even though the same water has been used during tests but with different temperatures, the readouts will come out different. For instance, a room temperature water will measure 150ppm whereas a 110ppm readout will be shown with the water is cold, and this is from the same source.
The unit also comes with a protective cap to cover the sensors when not in use. It is advertised to be factory calibrated which certainly is the case. However, the unit can be re-calibrated should results provide to be unsatisfactory.
For what it’s worth, the Lynxtech HM Digital TDS-3TM is a convenient little device to measure the purity of your water. If you’re looking for an all-in-one device, perhaps it is better to look somewhere else.
