Emphasis should always be on obtaining the cleanest and most reliable source of water available. A questionable source may require multiple purification methods, whereas a cleaner source will require less purification. Typically, water for domestic use constitutes approximately 10% of total water usage and is purified as needed. Agriculture water use, which is approximately 90% of total water usage, is not usually purified. With the results of both biological and mineral testing, a water purification system can be designed to suit your need for safe, reliable water.
WATER SOURCES & CONTAMINATION EXAMPLES
√ Springs (Bacterial & Turbidity)
√ Wells (Iron, Manganese, Hydrogen Sulfide)
√ Wells (High Dissolved Solids, Heavy Metals, Turbidity)
√ Ponds (Bacterial, Viruses, Cysts, Turbidity)
√ Municipal (Taste)
COMMONLY UTILIZED PURIFICATION SYSTEMS
√ Bacterial: Slow Sand Filtration or UV
√ Wells: Ozone
√ Wells: Reverse Osmosis)
√ Ponds: Slow Sand and UV
√ Municipal: Activated Carbon Absorption Filter
With the completion of a water source evaluation and test results, the type of purification system necessary can be selected and installed which is both effective and user friendly.
