Springs

A spring is a natural point where water exits the ground from an underground supply. Due to the array of problems that co-occur with the use of spring water, strict guidelines over multiple parameters are set to ensure that water is fit for human consumption.

A common problem that is encountered with spring water is high levels of water hardness, which is known to produce a build up of scale (calcium and magnesium ions) within pipes and filtration systems. High levels of nitrates are also prevalent within water drawn from a spring, making water unsafe to consume. Whilst these contaminants can usually be controlled using reverse osmosis, their high levels from source call for pre treatment stages of water softening and nitrate removal.

Excess turbidity, iron and manganese are also common factors within spring water that affect the potability of this source. Our extensive range of particle filtration is perfect for removing suspended solids at different micron ratings. This is furthered by other mechanical types of filtration within our systems such as the use of our carbon cartridges. Not only do these aid in particle removal, but also are great at absorbing organic, volatile compounds such as chlorine, chloramine and heavy metals.

Bacterial contamination and PH imbalances are bound to occur when water is stored underground. Whilst the majority of the bacteria will be removed with particle filtration and reverse osmosis, the latter also controlling PH levels within the water, we recommend using UV sterilisation to control the future growth of bacteria.

Treatment Process

1

Water Softening

Water hardness is the common term for elevated amounts of calcium ions and magnesium ions within source water. Our water softening resin is ideal for replacing even the most stubborn ions within your water with more soft sodium ions.

2

Nitrate Removal

Our nitrate removal resin is a strong base anion formula; tailored to suit the removal of nitrate ions from water. The proper mix of physio-chemical properties gives our resin ideal exchange kinetics, making it suitable for nitrate removal in the presence of sulphate and chloride ions.

3

Particle Removal

Our cartridges offer outstanding absorption of sediment, dirt, sand and scale flakes to prevent filtration systems from blockage and microorganism growth.

4

Chloramine & HMA Removal

Our premium carbon cartridges offer specialised absorption of chloramine and heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, caesium and strontium. When present in source water, these contaminants can cause severe problems liable to all sectors.

5

Reverse Osmosis

Pure water (permeate)  is produced during reverse osmosis by applying pressure to force water through a semi permeable membrane, leaving a majority of the present ions and dissolved solids on the other side to drain as waste (concentrate).

6

Ultraviolet Sterilisation

Our UV Systems produce light radiation at 253.7 nm, the ideal wavelength to kill and inhibit the growth of 99.9% of bacteria and viruses without any by product or requirement of chemical treatment.
