The Best Water Purification Process? Here’s a Few Tips

The Best Water Purification Process? Here’s a Few Tips There is an ongoing battle between manufacturers as to which is the best home water purification process. I’ll try to clarify and explain water purification systems for the home, at least a bit. We don’t have room here to cover everything, but there are a few points of comparison we can handle. There are two major competitors-reverse osmosis, and carbon filtration. Steam distillation and ultraviolet disinfection systems are also sold, but they’re not in very wide use in the United States. Reverse Osmosis The reverse osmosis water purification process forces water through a membrane, essentially a filter, that has holes just big enough for water molecules to get through. Impurities and contaminants that have larger molecules can’t make it through, and get filtered … Read entire article »

Tell More About The ProcessOf Water Purification

Tell More About The ProcessOf Water Purification We might think that the water we drink is as clean as it looks but it truly is not. Water can become contaminated as it is led to your taps, making it harmful for human consumption. However, we can use multi-stage water purification process with the right degree of cleanliness to improve water purity. Read more about this process in this article.     The very moment water is extracted from dams, lakes, rivers or streams it is immediately pushed through a pre-filter. A pre-filter consists of various stones of different sizes. This filter works in exactly the same way as a sieve and traps large dirt particles in water. Therefore when the water passes through stones of different sizes large dirt particles will remain … Read entire article »

Drinking Water Quality – Is Your Water Free From Toxic Matter?

Drinking Water Quality – Is Your Water Free From Toxic Matter? Most people aren’t concerned about drinking water quality and don’t have a sign on their kitchen faucet that says DANGER – TOXIC SUBSTANCES. But in most cases we should warn our loved ones and friends of the danger of drinking straight from the tap. The drinking water quality is not what it should be. Toxins in our water are shown to cause cancer, heart disease, learning disabilities in children, hypertension, asthma, skin irritations, and the list could go on even further. Most people think if what comes out of the tap looks clear, smells good and taste good that it is healthy. Not so in most cases. Many water treatment plants are old and need updated. Chemicals and microorganisms contaminate the … Read entire article »

Chemical Treatment For Water – How to Make Drinking Water Safe

Chemical Treatment For Water – How to Make Drinking Water Safe Disinfection The final treatment process for drinking water is chemical and physical disinfection to deactivate any coliforms and pathogenic microorganisms that penetrate the filter. The effectiveness of chemical treatment for water is a function of: The types of organisms to be inactivated. The quality of the water. The type and concentration of the disinfectant. The exposure or contact time. The temperature of the water. As stated previously, CT (chemical treatment) is used to identify the level of removal/inactivation of a given disinfectant for an organism (under a specific environmental condition). These values are useful when comparing biocidal efficiency. The table below provides values for chemical treatment for water for several organisms. Most of the available CT data for microorganisms of health concern were developed from … Read entire article »

Well Water Filtration Systems – How to Find the Best and Avoid Bad Tasting Water and Contamination

Well Water Filtration Systems – How to Find the Best and Avoid Bad Tasting Water and Contamination Well water filtration systems can be as simple as single stage cotton-fiber particle filters. They can also include dozens of different steps. How does a well-owner know what kind of system is best? That’s what this article looks at. The reason that there are so many different steps in some designs is because there are so many different contaminants in some freshwater sources. Even the underground sources, which were protected in the past, have become contaminated. Biological contaminants, which include bacteria, virus, fungus and parasites, are present in some wells. Chemical contaminants are among the most common kinds of contaminants. Run off from nearby industry and farms have led to that. People have to … Read entire article »

Water Quality #1 – Controlling Algae in Your Drinking Water

Water Quality #1 – Controlling Algae in Your Drinking Water Algae is present as small cells in drinking water, growing slowly in the dark, but it really gets going with the addition of sunlight, the sunlight sets off an photosynthesis growth in the algae cell and the algae begins to bloom/grow and multiply. Our experiments show that even drinking water with residual chlorine will begin to go a discernible green in 48 hours of exposure to sunlight. Algae is widely know as the green slim you see around stagnant water, ocean, lakes, rivers and after rain. Algae are aquatic, plantlike organisms that occur in many forms; single cells, to giant seaweed with root structures. Algae have many characteristics common to plants, cell walls containing the green pigment CHLOROPHYLL, and manufacture … Read entire article »

Polluted Drinking Water::how Bad Is It?

Polluted Drinking Water::how Bad Is It? Polluted drinking water is a growing danger we all face.  Are you cooking, drinking and bathing in polluted drinking water?  Many people unknowingly could be.  Here is why it is and what you can do about it. Why is Water Polluted? In some cases, it was industry that caused the problem.  For example, MTBE is present in some freshwater supplies, because of underground gasoline storage tanks.  It was a “no-knock” gasoline additive corrosive enough to eat its way out of the tanks and into the groundwater. Chemicals Found in Water Another example is benzene.  Benzene is a known human carcinogen.  It has been difficult to track exactly how it gets into freshwater supplies, but since it is not a naturally occurring substance, at least in the form … Read entire article »
