Does anyone know the dirrect relation of conductivity to Total disolved solids(CaCO3)?

I found this site here: [url]http://www.waterfiltersonline.com/tds-sources.asp[/url]
About the relationship between TDS and conductivity, it says this: [quote] 4. Conductivity is usually about 100 times the total cations or anions expressed as equivalents. Total dissolved solids (TDS) in ppm usually ranges from 0.5 to 1.0 times the electrical conductivity. [/quote]

I do not know if this will help, but if you are talking about a freshwater environment, you can convert conductivity to TDS by multiplying your conductivity in ums by 0.65
I got it from "Applied Aquatic Ecosystem Concepts" by Gerald L. Mackie, 2001
