Membrane Filtration

As the nation’s population continues to grow, the associated use of chemical products and waste generation rises accordingly. As a result, an increasing variety of contaminants are regularly released into the nation’s water sources, eventually making their way into the drinking water supply.

POU Faucet Selections

Faucets for point-of-use (POU) water treatment systems must combine an attractive, contemporary appearance with materials that ensure safety and purity. POU faucets and systems are becoming increasingly important to help meet consumer demands for safe, high-quality drinking water. It is estimated that by 2020 almost every household will have a POU or point-of-entry (POE) water treatment system.

The Standard Septic System: Still an Effective Choice for Onsite Wastewater Treatment

In 1997, EPA and Congress officially recognized onsite wastewater treatment systems (commonly referred to as septic systems) as a viable, long-term solution for treating wastewater. This was an important designation since nearly 40 percent of new homes in the United States use this type of system to treat household wastewater.

Understanding High-Flow Valves

Recent trends in home construction and strict interpretation of plumbing codes are forcing the water conditioning industry to offer systems with higher flow ratings. While the need for higher flow rates in larger homes is genuine, the actual flow rates that are encountered are likely to be less than those predicted using the traditional fixture count method to calculate flows. The system manufacturer needs to carefully consider all components used to assemble the system when designing a water conditioner to meet a specific flow requirement.

Decentralized Wastewater Treatment: Community Building and the Watershed Agenda

Decentralized wastewater treatment presents us with a range of possibilities for community preservation and watershed management. However, these possibilities remain obscured by the limitations of the onsite codes and unforeseen by municipal wastewater authorities unaware of decentralization or reluctant to explore its range and potential.
