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.

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.
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.
