Water is essential for the proper functioning of the human body. Any lack of fluid in the body affects the work of internal organs and our appearance, which is why the proper supply of water is so important.
The human body needs many different nutrients, so the daily menu should be varied as much as possible. In terms of beverages however, it is less demanding - we do not need to drink juices, coffee or tea. The only liquid really necessary is water. Currently, we can choose between its various types, but mineralized water is especially worth recommending.
The content of minerals makes it a valuable drink, which in addition to hydration provides the supply of valuable micronutrients. This effect can be obtained using special mineralizers used in most filtration systems. The content of calcium and magnesium has a positive effect on our well-being and metabolism.
Depending on the water source, water quality problems are different. Users around the world suffer from the effects of poor water quality. Whether it is a household, a factory, or a food or pharmaceutical industry, each of them has their own expectations as to the quality of water. When the water supplied does not meet these expectations, the water treatment industry offers solutions to improve its quality.
Water treatment stations are usually equipped with an intelligent flow control system and regeneration system. They operate automatically and do not require daily servicing. The device is usually mounted near a domestic water intake. It is important that there is an electrical outlet nearby and a drain to the sewage system.
The purpose of water treatment is to remove impurities in water or to reduce the concentration of these pollutants to meet the conditions for its final application. Different types of treatment can be used depending on the quality of the incoming water and the final expectations of the user.
Reverse osmosis is the most perfect filtration method available at the moment. It cleans water from 99.8% of contaminants, including bacteria and viruses as well as from unpleasant odors and aromas, making it 100% safe, even for children. Reverse osmosis is a natural and economical way to obtain drinking water at home. It is also the most commonly used method of water treatment used by bottled water producers. It is effective in removing or significantly reducing the very wide spectrum of pollutants. Of all available technologies used for water treatment in domestic applications, it guarantees the most effective cleaning of water. Reverse osmosis removes from the water particles as small as single ions
Sediment filters are used for mounting on the water supply pipe to the house or directly in front of the household appliances. It can be assembled individually or in series, creating entire filter systems. Adapted for use with any standard ten-inch cartridge from all manufacturers. There is possibility of using any types of cartridges, such as:
mechanical - designed for the purification of water sediment particles, such as rust, stone, mud
iron-removing - designed to remove iron and other impurities
carbon - designed to reduce the chlorine content and chlorination by-products softening - designed to reduce the hardness of tap water
scale removing - especially recommended for those who have problems with the scale formation on household appliances such as a washing machine or a dishwasher.
The cheapest and the most effective way to get drinking water in the kitchen. The device is very easy to use: thanks to the filter mounted in a jug, we can enjoy purified tap water in a few minutes. The filtration mixture reduces the content of compounds such as:
hardness (prevents the formation of scale- water becomes soft), chlorine (improved taste and smell of water- water is purified from carcinogenic chloroorganic compounds, iron and manganese (removes metallic taste), heavy metals (do not allow metals to accumulate in the human body) and organic compounds.
Thanks to their size, they can be used both at home and on the go.
Filter beds and resins
Filtration media such as filter beds and resins are an integral part of water treatment stations. Depending on the purpose of the filter, the individual type of bed is used. Some regeneration beds require rock salt, potassium permanganate or other chemicals, while others require backwashing. This form of water purification is used as a filtration medium in larger devices such as iron separators, water softeners or water demineralization kits.
They are also used as ready inserts for home filters and reverse osmosis systems. They are used to remove compounds such as: manganese and iron as well as calcium and magnesium (softening water).
UV lamps are designed for disinfection of drinking water in private and municipal installations, swimming pool water, utility water in the food industry, pharmacy and many others; in particular, well water, where viruses and bacteria multiply. They have germiocidad properties. It is used as a protection against secondary water contamination or protection against bacteria. Ultraviolet rays destroy the structure of bacterial cells and water after irradiation is disinfected after a few seconds. Sterilization using UV lamps eliminates the need to use chemicals that are dangerous to our health.
Water softeners and iron removers
Most households are supplied with water with a large amount of manganese and iron, as well as calcium and magnesium, which gives water a hardness. Water reach with calcium and magnesium compounds leads to increased consumption of washing agents, as well as the deposition of scale affecting our plumbing equipment.
High content of iron and manganese in the water is the cause of yellow, reddish and even brown stains on the kitchen and bathroom armature. During washing, water with a high concentration of iron can also damage the clothes, leaving permanent stains. In addition, this water has an unpleasant taste and smell. Thanks to modern technologies, it is possible to effectively eliminate these problems by using water softeners and iron removers in every house.
