One of the most serious tap water problems faced by the country of Poland is the high rate of hardness in natural water sources. The term “hard water” references the abundance of minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, found in water reserves. In other words, when water contains a significant amount of magnesium and calcium, it is described as hard.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, E. coli bacteria, normally found in the human gut and feces, are present in alarming quantities in a majority of pools. The bacteria find their way into pools when people do not take showers before swimming or have “accidents” in the water. It is more likely to find fecal contamination in municipal pools. HydroFlow water conditioners are one method of secondary disinfection that can reduce bacterial contamination and chemical consumption in pools.

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.

These commercial electronic descaling systems provide effective, eco-friendly limescale buildup removal and prevention. Microelectronics enable them to fit into small, normally inaccessible spaces in commercial applications. Ideal for use in laundries, restaurants and bakeries, the system is available in NEMA2/IP54, but any ingress rating or configuration can be supplied.
The FEDI-2Rx fractional electrodeionization product range is designed for applications in pharmaceutical, biomedical and laboratory applications in which installations require hot water sanitization to meet pharmacopoeia standards for purified water and water for injection.
Kinetico introduces the Essential Series of a non-electric, single-tank systems
Kinetico recently introduced the Essential Series in the U.S. and Canada, non-electric, single-tank systems ideal for suburbanites and city dwellers with typical municipal water, as well as those with well water that falls within specific conditions.
About 55% of adults in the U.S. drink coffee daily, according to the National Coffee Assn. Coffee shops have helped consumers develop an appreciation for specialty coffee. Higher-grade coffee beans, improved roasting methods and better brewing equipment have improved product quality and increased customer expectations. Because coffee is about 99% water, water quality is critical to the brewing process.

Stated simply, hard water is water that is hard to lather, and soft water is not. A more technically accurate definition of soft water describes the physical removal, to less than 1 grain per gal (gpg) in most cases, of calcium and magnesium salts. If you cheat and go to the end of this article, however, future generations’ definition of soft water might read “less than 4 gpg, as defined by the U.S. Geological Survey.”

New technologies offer dealers opportunities to maximize efficiency for customers
If you attended the WQA Aquatech USA 2013 tradeshow in Indianapolis in April, you heard about many exciting topics, but probably none that have been in the works for as long as the septic study. After more than 10 years in the making, the Water Quality Research Foundation published results from the Environmental Impact Study that was funded to investigate the effects residential ion exchange water softeners may have on the performance of onsite septic tanks.
Septic study results show systems working together efficiently
The Hybrid DI with Crosscharge technology offers the benefits of traditional water softening and RO in a single system without requiring salt. This capacitive deionization system uses low-voltage direct current to deliver bottled-quality water where cost and space limitations are key considerations.
