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.
New technologies provide options to combat hard water
The Brookfields Restaurant chain consists of three large eateries located in and around Sacramento, Calif. Like many others, Brookfields Restaurants were equipped with water softeners to control lime scale on their hot water equipment, which consists of hot water heaters, dishwashers, steamers, coffeemakers
and espresso machines.
Water conditioners resolve restaurants' spotty dishes
Engineered for problem water, TotalCare Series water conditioners offer the benefits of both conditioners and filters. A zeolite crystal filtration media removes hardness, iron and manganese, reduces odors and raises low pH levels. A patented self-chlorinating system removes iron and sulfur bacteria during regeneration, and a proprietary microprocessor control ensures top performance.
Watts Water Quality Products has introduced water treatment technology available with E-Treat water conditioning systems. The new systems incorporate the use of a patented “tank-n-tank” design to allow two different filter media to be installed in separate tanks using a footprint equal to a single tank.
Sanitizer Plus Series water conditioners add operating and programming intelligence through a microprocessor-based control that captures operating history while enhancing control over all system functions. The system utilizes Crystal-Right media to remove hardness, iron and manganese while also correcting low pH levels in a single pass.
