Replacement Cartridges: The best way to make sure that your system stays clean and clear, is to make sure that your water filter replacement cartridge is properly maintained. The quick way to guess and determine if your filter is operating properly, is the quality of your purified water. If the water looks cloudy or has debris in it, it’s probably time for filter maintenance. Another effective way to determine the quality of your filter is the filter pressure indicator. This is usually a gauge or meter that is on the outside of your filter housing.
As your cartridge begins to accumulate dirt it becomes more difficult to function properly. By maintaining the replacements as needed, the system would perform better and last longer.
Reverse Osmosis: This technology removes many inorganic contaminants from drinking water supplies. The removal effectiveness depends on the contaminant and its concentration, the Reverse Osmosis membrane used, the water pressure (psi) and way of RO installation. Purchase and Operating Costs need to be considered when comparing competitive RO and other Drinking Water Purification systems, and when making purchase or rental decisions.
Ultra Violet: UV Disinfection technology was mainly used for applications in wastewater treatment, however it’s now being used in drinking water and Well Water treatment. Once they thought that Ultra Violet disinfection was more effective for bacteria and viruses, which have more exposed genetic material, than for larger pathogens which have outer coatings or that form cyst states that shield their DNA from the UV light. However, it was recently discovered that ultraviolet radiation can be somewhat effective for treating the microorganism Cryptosporidium.
Water Distillers: Water Distillation involves heating the water to boiling point and condensing the steam. Pollutants with a boiling point near that of water is difficult to remove, however, distilled water is generally of top quality. This method does requires a large amount of energy. Some people will also complain that the distilled water tastes flat (this is due to less dissolved oxygen). Many units use post-carbon filtration to enhance it’s taste.
Water Filters: There are a number of methods of water filtration, each with varying degrees of effectiveness, and each with different costs and performances. The general purpose of filtering water is to improve the water’s hygiene and aesthetic qualities.
Water Purification: This is the process of removing contaminants from raw water sources, with a goal to produce water for a specific purpose with a treatment profile designed to limit the inclusion of specific materials; most purified water process are done for drinking water.
Water Softeners: Hard water can cause problems on several fronts. First, it can clog your appliances. Using hard water in your dishwasher or coffeemaker can mean a build up of mineral deposits. That buildup can mean your appliance has to work harder to properly pump water. Hard water can also mean your dishes, clothes, and body don’t get as clean. Hard water doesn’t lather up as well, and thus, you have a more difficult time cleaning. In addition, hard water can leave a sticky film on your tiled bathroom, in your bathtub and on you. For hard water, we use a water softner. Other than that, don’t be fooled by con artists: there are no health risks involved by using hard water – – – Period.
Water Treatment: The water that we drink – is it fit for consumption? Most ailments are transmitted through water – that underscores the importance of water treatment systems; especially for homes. These water treatment devices can improve the quality of water by reducing health hazards such as bacteria, chemical pollutants and other toxic substances.
