Im my case high tds was caused by lot of debris from Driftwood and leaves, all params stay stable only tds is low

Your tds most likely went down when you added the second filter not due to less debris but the processing of organics. I say this because today in my tank I had a ton of debris from dead leaves and excess food. And I'm not talking about a little but a lot. I tested the tds before and immediately after cleaning a ton and the tds remained exactly the same as @natemcnutty explained. You can test this.

Remember the D in tds stands for dissolved.
