In last year I bought a TDS meter and have been monitoring. It appears to range, for me, between 85-115 TDS- depending on time of year.
If you want to know the actual ppm burden, use this calculator:

In the US, it's likely that you have a .5 conversion model (would be on the mfg website). This will understate actual ppm. The calculator will give you actual ppm by inputting the 500 reading and using the 700 conversion.
