The process of water purification involves elimination of pollutants from impure water in order to produce pristine, hygienic and pure drinking water. Substances which are generally removed from dirty water to make it suitable for human consumption include bacteria, suspended solids, algae, fungi, viruses, man-made pollutants like fertilisers and minerals such as sulphur, manganese and iron.
It is imperative for suitable measures to be taken so that the consumer end can have access to desirable quality water. And that includes protection of treated water throughout conveyance as well as distribution. With supply & installation of appropriately sized filter and the right kind of media, it is quite easy to achieve clean drinking water using a minimal amount of maintenance. Every filter sold and installed by O’Brien Water Services is built according to the water and the specific chemicals that would be treated using it, at our workshop. The entire task is proceeded after conducting a water test.
If you’d like to know more about how to get your water analysed, get in touch with us for a laboratory-accredited water test.
- IRON AND MANGANESE REMOVAL: It refers to the elimination of trace elements of Iron and Manganese found in various states in water. These are removed by different media, depending on the chemical make up of each individual water supply.
- WATER SOFTENERS: If there is hardness in the water, it can quite easily lead to accumulation of limescale in appliances like washing machines, kettles, etc. Hard water has the ability to reduce soap’s lather, and react with it to create a sticky scum-like residue. Water Softeners remove this hardness by to protect boilers, hot water cylinders and domestic appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers.
- pH CORRECTION: When the pH of water becomes lower than 6.5, it is said to be acidic. If water turns acidic, it can corrode soft metals like copper in heating cylinders, equipment and pipework in your house.
- UV FILTERS: Using UV filters can kill bacteria which might be present in water.
- RO FILTERS: RO stands for reverse osmosis or hyperfiltration, and is at present, the best filtration process available. It is commonly preferred by companies vending premium bottled water. It is highly effective in either significantly reducing or removing a range of contaminants. A standard under-sink unit is generally what’s required for obtaining clean drinking water.
