The Water Quality Assn.’s Guidelines for Disinfection and Sanitization of Water Treatment Equipment recommend that equipment be disinfected every six months, when it is serviced, after installation and when there is a contamination issue with the source water. If water treatment equipment is not properly sanitized, bacteria can grow and multiply on the inside surfaces of tanks and hoses.

R2-series and M2-series reverse osmosis systems are engineered and manufactured for commercial and light industrial applications and for feedwaters up to 10,000 TDS. These high-efficiency systems utilize Filmtec LC LE low-energy membrane elements, making them the first low-energy brackish water systems in the industry.
Perhaps the most attractive aspect of golfing is the idea of spending several hours in a park-like setting strolling across lush fairways, putting greens and tees. For this reason, golf course managers dedicate a great deal of resources to the maintenance and health of special turf grasses.

Many adverse ecological effects have been attributed to pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) and endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs), but it is not clear what risk they pose to human health. In the past, water was known to contain these chemicals, but the exact amount was difficult to quantify. Recently, these chemicals have gained much more attention.
Treatment solutions for chemicals affecting human health
Whether or not we’d like to admit it, we live in a competitive society. To make matters worse, I live in a competitive home. My children are motivated by the thrill of a contest. It is not just playing games either—the competition has moved to simple, everyday tasks.
Gain an advantage in the marketplace with third-party certification
Consumers who choose to use a residential point-of-use (POU) reverse osmosis (RO) system in their home need to feel secure that their system is producing high quality, reliable water for their family. Because most of us lack sophisticated equipment at home to make this determination, many homeowners rely on trusted brands to deliver the water quality they expect.
Quality tests and certifications ensure reliable filter performance
Previous articles in this series explained principles of how reverse osmosis (RO) systems work and the main factors and components that impact their performance. Once a point-of-use (POU) RO system is operating in the field, there are several troubleshooting tips that can prevent failures due to shortened lifetimes. These failures are usually caused by scaling, biofouling or particles. This article will cover techniques and tools that are used to troubleshoot these failures.
