Water Treatment Processes
Water/Sediment filters are used to remove dirt. Physical filtration means straining water to remove dirt and sediment particles.
- Ultraviolet filtration (UV)
Ultraviolet light is use for killing bacteria in your water supply. It does this by having the water flow into a cylinder shape tube, this contains a ultraviolet light running through the middle of it killing bacteria as it flows pass it. Ultraviolet systems are highly recommended for the elimination of bacteria, viruses even legionella as well as other micro-organisms.
- Reverse Osmosis (RO)
Reverse Osmosis is a water treatment process that removes contaminants from water by using pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane. During this process, the contaminants are filtered out and flushed away, leaving clean drinking water. Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration is one of the most popular and best water filtration methods available.
Water softeners work through a process called ion exchange which removes calcium and magnesium from the water. When the water enters into the mineral tank, it flows through a bed of spherical resin beads. When the bead seizes the mineral ion, the sodium ion is released leaving you with soft water. There are many benefits of having soft water some being:
-Longer working life for your washing machine, dishwasher and central heating system, saving you money on service and maintenance costs.
-Better for your hair and skin, your skin will feel smoother, your hair will be shinier.
-Towels, clothes and all fabrics take on a new fresh softness with less detergent. Use up to 50% less detergents, soaps and shampoos!
