One of the most pronounced shifts in the water treatment industry is the rapidly burgeoning need to improve water quality. The need for water treatment systems is growing quickly, and, unfortunately, North America is hardly immune to challenges.
A look at three tried-and-true methods for water softening & treatment
Alternatives to ion exchange water softeners are not new to the water quality market. In recent years, we have seen a number of new technologies as well as new twists on old technologies, and we continue to hear promises that these new products will change our paradigm.

Those are lyrics I sang countless times during my tenure as a Girl Scout. This mantra is a great life lesson for a school-age kid — especially one like me, who went to four different elementary schools. But as we sang the song at the end of each troop meeting, I certainly wasn’t thinking of all the ways this simple piece of advice could apply to my life — ways that extend far past the simple message of friendship.

The Akwamag Plus sustainable water softener applies advanced magnetic science to inhibit the creation of costly and unsightly scale that forms inside water pipe, stains household hardware and bathrooms, and makes it harder to wash dishes and clothes. The softener requires no salt; it uses powerful magnets that work at the molecular level to prevent calcium and scale deposits from forming. It runs maintenance free and is cost-efficient.
It all began for me in the fall of 2012, when D.J. Shannahan, owner of Sharp Water and a Water Quality Assn. (WQA) board member, provided me with his wealth of experience to assist the state of Delaware in revising a restrictive septic law. During a visit in February 2013, Richard Mest, WQA president and president of Master Water Conditioning Corp., immediately offered his years of legislative experience throughout the U.S. and specifically in Washington, D.C., to help in Delaware.

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.
