COMPARE WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS – WATER TREATMENTS EXPLAINED

Water treatment systems are created to solve various problems. So consumers must know the main treatment needs before buying a water treatment system. Some major issues people need a water treatment system include chemical removal, water hardness, UV treatment, and other water pollutants or contaminants.

While determining the issue is important you, you also need an expert and reliable installer. However, the consumer's diligence is the right way to guarantee the success of any water system installation.

Targeted Contaminants

Water treatment system industries are used by water system owners to take away different contaminants from water. However, most companies' use the term purified in their water systems, but it is a wrong term to call water treatment. Clean water is H2O and it is a unique substance to see in its pure state. Some contaminants include

· Bacteria

To kill bacteria in water; some companies make use of disinfection techniques and UV to remove bacteria that contaminate the water.

· Minerals

If your water contains excess minerals, it makes the water hard. To remove hardness, a water softener system is used.

· Multi-contaminant removal

Some of the bacteria removed by water treatment systems include the following:

· Heavy metals from damaged pipes and construction projects, which gives water metallic taste.


· Sediments which go into the water supply via construction work.  This gives the water a brown and muddy appearance.


· Chlorine added by some water companies to remove contaminants from the water sources. This makes the water to have a strong chemical taste.

Water treatment systems explained

In a bid to help you to select a new water system that suits your needs, here are have the major four types of water treatment systems:

Filtration

In this process, water flows through water systems, which include several filters for removing taste, turbidity, color, odor or ion. Overall, the process includes adsorptive, mechanical, and neutralizing.

Ultraviolet

It is no news that Sunlight kills micro-organisms. The sun rays have UV * spectrum applied in ultraviolet water treatment systems. Also, it is known as to as the Frequency or Germicidal Spectrum. Micro-organisms are killed using a frequency of 254 nanometers (nm). Further, the UV lamps used are created to have the greatest amount of Ultraviolet energy at this frequency.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis reduces dissolved ions (such as salts) from the water. This works by using pressure to eject liquid (water) via a semi-permeable membrane, which transfers the water but discards other dissolved materials.

Overall, the performance of water treatment systems is different.  They depend on the level of maintenance the user performs on the system. Adequate maintenance is important if you want the water system to keep on functioning properly.
