How to Use the Water Analysis Accuracy Tester

  1. Water Type Selection:
    • Choose the water type (freshwater, brackish water, or saline water) that best represents the water sample you are analyzing. This is important because the acceptable percent difference in the charge balance can vary depending on the water type.
  2. Temperature Input:
    • Enter the temperature of the water sample. Electrical conductivity is temperature-dependent, so this information is crucial for accurate calculations.
  3. Ion Concentration Inputs:
    • Provide the concentrations of the major ions present in the water sample, including calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, sulfate, chloride, nitrate, silica, and fluoride. These values are used to calculate the cation and anion sums.
  4. Additional Water Chemistry Factors:
    • The tester also allows you to input the concentrations of dissolved organic matter (DOM), redox potential (ORP), pH, alkalinity, hardness, and dissolved gases (carbon dioxide and oxygen). These additional factors can provide a more comprehensive understanding of the water chemistry and its impact on the overall charge balance.
  5. Calculate Accuracy:
    • Once you have entered all the required information, click the “Calculate Accuracy” button. The tester will then determine the percent difference between the cation and anion sums, and provide an interpretation of the water analysis accuracy based on established acceptance criteria.

The key benefit of this tester is that it goes beyond the basic charge balance and considers a wide range of water chemistry factors that can influence the overall accuracy of the analysis. By incorporating these additional parameters, you can gain a more accurate and reliable assessment of your water analysis, helping you identify potential issues or imbalances in the water composition.This comprehensive approach makes the “Water Analysis Accuracy Tester” a valuable tool for water quality professionals, researchers, and anyone who needs to ensure the quality and reliability of their water analysis data. By using this tester, you can make informed decisions about water treatment, management, and compliance with relevant standards and regulations.
