Chlorine Vs. UV Ultraviolet Water Purification

Major soft drinks groups use Ultra Violet disinfection to provide micro-biologically pure water, which helps add shelf life to their products. Soft drinks and bottled water producers build their reputations around the purity of their products, emphasizing the fact that they’re natural.

UV is the only known effective method of treating bottled water without compromising marketing assets.

Minute contaminants in rinse water, including microorganisms and total organic compounds (TOC), can adversely affect yields and must be removed by the water purification system. In order to meet these demands, UV technology for disinfection and organics removal is often used in the water treatment scheme.

Reverse Osmosis for Car Wash

Please help me determine whether or not this unit will suit my purpose of washing vehicles.I plan to attatch the unit in my garage at the water source connected to the hose.The hose will be connected to a pressure washer which uses about 2 gallons per mintue.

Will this unit cut it?

Also, can it filter out the sediments to ultimately leave a spot free drying finish?

Please set me up with a proper unit for my application.

A. You want to wash vehicles with reverse osmosis purified water. Hmm… I don’t understand why that’s needed. RO water is usually used for drinking, bathing, or food processing industries. I think vehicles can do without this expensive method.

B. A 50 gpd (gallons per DAY) system, can not be used for a 2 gpm (gallons per MINUTE) source.

There are commercial RO units available that can be used for heavy usage, however those are far more expensive then standard home reverse osmosis units.

CuZn Water Filters

I am looking to buy a whole house filter. There are 3 people in our household. Which CuZn water filter would work best, the WH10 or the WH20?

The CuZn inline filters (WH10 and WH20) can NOT be backwashed, so the media is used up. It will last approx. 1 year sometimes much more, sometimes much less depending on the water being used. We would need a full water analysis in order to provide a precise suggestion. Media replacements can be purchased too.
