Question:Water Filter Effectiveness

Mempet is asking a question about water-quality: Follow this topic

by Mempet | September 04, 2017 19:13 | #14825

Hello, I am creating a water filter using Moringa Olefiera. I need to test the effectiveness of it. I already have a TDS meter, but I can't afford a turbidity meter. What are some other ways I can test the efficiency of the filter? How can I test the effectiveness of a water filter on reducing turbidity?

Hi @gretchengehrke! Thanks for letting me know about this! I might actually be able to use it. However, one complication I have is the amount of liquid needed. I only have about 15 ml of liquid, so I don't know if the tube will work..
