Water treatment filters

So, before we get into the question of selecting the right filter for your water treatment needs, let's first find out if you need one at all. We don't always think about the quality of untreated water when we use it, whether we drink it, cook it, or use it for household purposes.

The selection of treatment systems takes into account turbidity, odor, hardness, total microbial number, chromaticity, iron, nitrates, sulfides, fluorides, and sodium compounds in water. This can all be found out by performing a water analysis. But there are also a number of signs that you can see for yourself before the water analysis is carried out.

Limescale is a sign of hard water

If you notice that there is a limescale left on the kettle, which is difficult to remove, it is a sign of hard water. Not only does limescale remain on the kettle, but all the heating elements that come into contact with the hot water. Hard water affects clothes that lose their shape after washing, and the fabric becomes coarser. A film remains on the sink and bathtub after the water. Hard water also has an effect on health. It is not advisable to wash your hair in hard water, as it makes it harder, dries, and flakes your skin.

Iron in the tap water

Increased iron content is another sign that we most often encounter when using water for the home. When the iron content is high, there is red patina, rusty stains on the sanitary ware, the water has a metallic taste, and in pure water, at the bottom, there is red sediment.

Weakness, dizziness, general malaise, and other ailments are usually written off for weather or improper nutrition. It is possible that in some cases this is the case, but the main reason lies in the water. Every day for the normal functioning of the body we need at least two liters of liquid, and the quality and composition of untreated water leaves much to be desired. We begin to understand that there is something wrong with water when we notice whitish stains on tiles in the bathroom, and in the bath, shower, sink or toilet, ugly rusty stains and leaks. Find out why this is happening and how dirty the water that is not filtered and it is, believe me, polluted, water analysis will help you. It will show you which harmful organic and inorganic compounds are present in the water and, most importantly, will help you decide whether or not to clean the water and make the right choice of iron filters and filtration elements.

Filter selection

The first step (water analysis) is done, but it is not enough to select filters specifically for your home. It is necessary to determine the need for purified water. What is it for? The data obtained will allow you to select the filter, whose performance and resource is able to cope with the treatment of the volume of water that is necessary for you. Consumption rate depends on the number of people living in the house, and takes into account the number of points of water consumption, in bathrooms with showers and sinks, toilets.

Let's leave exact calculations to our specialists, who will help you professionally in this matter by calculating the daily and average water consumption, as well as the peak performance of the filter, and we will approximate the water consumption for your family.

For drinking, cooking, hygiene, showering, rinsing the toilet, and washing the dishes, an average of 250 liters per day per person is required. This can be tested experimentally. A family of four consumes 1000 liters per day respectively. We mainly use water for 10 hours a day. So our filter has to be able to clean 100 liters per hour.

Now that you have water analysis data, and knowing the performance of the filter that meets your requirements, you can safely choose a filter and filter elements for your home.

Household filters

If it is necessary to purify not only drinking water but all running water, you should pay attention to complex water treatment systems. These filters are designed to purify water from manganese, iron, organic, ammonium, and hard salts.

Household filters are reagent, reagent-free, complete with an automatic valve that performs automatic regeneration of backfill.

Backfill can be of different types and are selected based on the results of water analysis.

To remove mechanical impurities (sand, clay, sludge) use the main filters, which are installed on the main cold water pipe at the entrance to the house or apartment. They purify water from microparticles of rust, grains of sand and other suspended materials.
