    Depends on whether you want to inspect the glass with a microscope to notice the difference.

    What about my new parts per trillion machine, costs loads, looks like it came from space and cleans glass. The best upgrade to any system is hot water.

    0 Ppm leaves spotless Windows.
    0 Ppb leaves windows spotless.

    How much money do you want to spend to achieve the same result?

    It's still a cold water system.

    An inline uv filter is quite cheap, do you really need an ozone generator for cleaning windows, if you maintain your system these items are pointless.

    You will achieve perfect results with 0ppm if you do it reasonably well.

    Waste of money if you ask me..

    Surely if you have 000 ppm it would be 000 ppb also? How can you make something purer that's already 100% pure, or is the water not 100% pure when it's says 000ppm?

    Is there a new tds meter to check ppb that will be another way to get money out of window cleaners!

    The only way to achieve 100% pure water is by distillation, very expensive process.

    000ppm is not 100% pure, its good enough for us to use and its been proven as the glass is clean with ppm!
    there is more that you can take out to make it purer. mainly for labs and electronic places to use!

    You can go crazy with water purification, we could then look at killing all the aerobic an anaerobic bacteria etc in the water. First we need to remove all the oxygen from the water, which will kill the aerobic stuff, then you need to blast the water with micro bubbles at a specific wavelength to efficiently destroy the rest. Yet again another expensive process.

    yer thats true, at the end of the day its window cleaning, ppm works well and does the job, why improve that?

    as the saying goes:-

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it
