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.

HydroNovation

HydroNovation is a leader in the development and application of HydroDI™ , a salt-free whole house water treatment system. HydroDI reduces contaminants and scale forming minerals for superior water quality in residential and commercial applications. HydroDI combines the benefits of a water softener and RO system in one system. The patented technology licensed from Siemens uses electricity to remove both cations and anions from the source water in a process called continuous electro-deionization. Unlike conventional water treatment approaches, this environmentally-friendly and energy efficient technology eliminates the need for salt or chemicals to treat water. The HydroDI system allows customers to save water and energy, improve water quality and reduce wastewater discharge.

New Year, New Initiatives

The Water Quality Assn.’s (WQA) Gold Seal product certification program continues to grow and expand to meet the needs of the industry. This is being accomplished while maintaining quality control procedures and customer service. Regulatory acceptance of Gold Seal certification has reached a new high with the addition of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program, which is now accepting the Gold Seal program for compliance of water coolers.

Sorting Out Scale Prevention

Scale not only clogs pipes and destroys valves, it also consumes energy. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook 2012, more than 10% of the energy consumed in a home goes toward heating water.

Many consumers use energy-efficient products to save money. What many do not know is that energy-saving efforts can be negated if they have hard water and do not address scale.

Gaining Acceptance

Going green is all the rage these days. Whether it is constructing a wind farm, installing solar energy panels on a roof or simply switching to CFL light bulbs in a home, Americans are finding ways to tap renewable resources and conserve energy.

The push for energy conservation is good news for the water quality industry: The Water Quality Research Foundation Energy Savings Study showed that using softened water in a home improves energy efficiency and can save homeowners money on heating costs.

Water Softening Goes Digital

Hardness is a common water quality issue that does not pose any direct human health risks. The minerals found in hard water—typically calcium and magnesium—have no ill health effects to speak of.
