well considering that most water in the middle east, bottled water included comes either from desalinisation or reverse osmosis (or a combination of the two) the fact that the sodium content is high is a given!
although 33ppm (part per million) Total Disolved Salts is in fact very low and no where near the salinity of sea water which is 35,000ppm; this is the internationaly accepted given for sea water, although the level of salinity does vary geographically, regionaly and seasonally - for example sea water in the arabian gulf is between 50,000 and 54,000ppm depending on the time of year.
now if your reading were 33ptt (parts per ten thousand) then it would be a different story.
more interesting would be the chlorine, bromine and flourine content of the water!!!
