I would like your opinion of the assertions made by Matthew Griffith in an article I read some months back. When calculating saturation index, I pretty much follow what's printed in the Taylor Testing and Treatment Guide, but I use a 'TDS factor' of 12.2 instead of 12.1. In fact, I've read elsewhere that due to my high Total Dissolved Solids (> 5000 ppm, inclusive of ~3200 salt) that the factor should really be 12.3. If I read your post correctly, you may agree with this. Mr. Griffith, however, seems to feel this is overstated. Here's what he says:

- 1. Do you agree that the factor for high-TDS water has been overstated?
2. What are your thoughts on whether temperature, among other factors, as published by equipment manufacturers et al are incorrect?
