Electrical Conductivity (EC)

Electrical conductivity is a measure of how well a material accommodates the transport of electric charge. The more salts dissolved in the water, the higher the EC value. It is used to estimate the amount of total dissolved salts, or the total amount of dissolved ions in the water.
