The delivery of safe, clean water to our homes is something that is often taken for granted. Water purification is essential to providing water for everyday use. Public water supplies may often contain substances that affect the taste, color, odor, and even the hardness of your water. The good news is that there are numerous types of water treatment systems that can help ensure you are getting the best quality water possible. We’ve highlighted a few of these systems below.
Water filtration is a process where water passes through a system that might include one or more filters for the purpose of removing foul taste, color, iron, or odor. This process removes undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, and gases from contaminated water. The goal with water filtration is to produce water fit for a specific purpose.
When you suffer from hard water, you’ll find that your dishes have a gritty finish, your soap doesn’t lather very well, your hair has a film on it after washing, and more. Water softening removes the ions that cause the water to be hard, in most cases calcium and magnesium ions. Iron ions might also be removed during softening.
This process reduces dissolved ions, such as salt, from water by applying pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane, which allows the water to move through but rejects most other dissolved materials. When forced against the membrane surface, the dissolved materials are repelled, while the water molecules are diffused through the membrane. This same process is used to desalinate ocean water.
Chemical Feed Pump
Chemical feed pumps help to reduce harmful pollutants in your water, such as viruses like E. coli and contaminants like oils, pesticides, and paint products. There are multiple water treatment problems that can be solved by the use of a chemical feed pump.
