When designing a commercial drinking water system using ultraviolet (UV) light for disinfection, you will need to know the local regulations, how to determine flow rates, what options may be required and whether you need pre-treatment. When speaking about commercial establishments, I am referring to restaurants, daycare centers, schools, hospitals, parks and other entities that serve the public.
Overview of state regulations, determining flow rates, system options and pre-treatment requirements
Commercial water softener malfunctions are generally very similar to residential problems. Don’t let the size of the system scare you off from what can be very profitable repair service work. Many dealers are intimidated by a 48-in. diameter softener leaving a vacuum that can be filled by competent service companies in a less competitive atmosphere. Market conditions make commercial service repair work in higher demand and repair rates should be commensurated with this increased need.
Meeting the needs of your customer
Water Quality Products recently spoke with
Peter J. Censky, executive director of the Water Quality Association, to find out more about the WQA Aquatech USA event to be held this spring in Las Vegas.
My goal is to help you better understand the misunderstood “chemical feed pump.”
A basic understanding will improve your strained relationship
The Desert Pain Institute of Mesa, Ariz., wanted an ecologically sound disinfection option for the therapeutic pools and spa in its new facility. Ultraviolet (UV) systems from Aquionics were paired with peroxide disinfection to provide a sanitary pool environment for the facility's aquatic rehabilitation services.
Ultraviolet Peroxide System Restores Water Quality, Eliminates Chloramines
Emerging commercial technologies are replacing the "old standards" for small water system (SWS) applications. In contrast to large community systems, competitive economics, simple operation and low waste production will drive changes in technology and engineering. Some out-of-the-box thinking will be necessary in the shift to provide simpler, packaged or preengineered arsenic treatment systems.
Arsenic Treatment for Small Public Water Systems
Research has suggested that there is a link between exposure to chloramines in indoor swimming pools and a rise in childhood asthma. An ultraviolet chloramine-destruction system may help lower this risk.
