Countdown to Lead-Free

The Federal Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, which passed in 2011, will go into full effect on Jan. 4, 2014. It may come as a surprise that the plumbing industry, through Plumbing Manufacturers Intl. (PMI), was a primary proponent of getting this law passed, in the spirit of harmonizing regulations across the U.S.

Inspiration for Innovation

There is a finite amount of available water on our planet, and it is becoming an increasingly scarce resource. As populations increase, significant amounts of water are required to maintain modern life. After the baby boom and massive urbanization of the 20th century, meeting increasing demand while managing water quality expectations became a significant challenge for the water supply industry, which realized that municipal water should be reused more effectively.

Not So Rock 'n' Roll

At first glance, this issue of Water Quality Products might seem to have a rock ‘n’ roll theme, with phrases like “rock on” and “heavy metal” peppering the article titles — but unfortunately the issue at hand is anything but rock ‘n’ roll.

The focus of these articles is heavy metals, contaminants that lately have been making more waves than usual within the industry. Between the quickly approaching deadline for the new federal low-lead law and the recent release of California’s proposed chromium-6 limit, it is one that will continue to be a concern.

Analyzer

Company Reference: 

The SA1100 scanning analyzer provides portable drinking water testing for lead and copper. The lightweight, waterproof analyzer is capable of field or laboratory analysis. Tests are conducted with disposable sensors, with results in less than three minutes. Up to 500 results can be stored with time and date information. Data can be downloaded to PC or tablet devices for logging and tracking. Tests are guided with onscreen prompts on the LCD monitor.
 

Filters

Company Reference: 

Excito under-counter systems remove mechanical impurities, organic contaminants, and some bacteria and viruses. They reduce hardness, the concentration of heavy metals and up to 99% of chlorine, and improve taste and odor. Big Blue 10- and 20-in. housings can be mounted individually or connected in series. They consist of the housing and filter head with a 1-in. brass insert and are equipped with a valve that allows the release of pressurized air accumulated in the filter.  
 

Evaluating Electrochemical Treatment

The water treatment industry is constantly driven to find more sustainable solutions to treatment problems. Cation exchange water softeners are extremely effective at removing hardness, but are under attack in several states due to the salt and water they discharge during regeneration. Reverse osmosis systems are effective at removing total dissolved solids (TDS), but a significant percentage of the influent water is discharged to the drain as wastewater.
