The objectives of this paper were to determine the levels of contaminants or elements in the dialysis water and dialysate, to compare them with the standard levels of contaminants, to judge the quality of water treated by the systems used at some hemodialysis centers, and to aid in solving hemodialysis water quality problems. Atomic absorption spectrometry was used to determine the levels of elements in samples collected from feed water, treated or product water at different stages of purification, and dialysate solutions.
