Both traditional and emerging treatment technologies can be effective at reducing or removing contaminants.
A range of treatment options are available to remove contaminants of all types
When professionals are entrusted to care for a public or residential pool or spa, their primary responsibilities to owners and users are to reduce risk, improve efficiency, and ensure more benefits and fewer consequences. Wherever there is treated water, risks include drowning, chemical exposure, injury, equipment damage and recreational water illness.
Proper testing techniques are key to maintaining pools & spas
SepticSmart Week is Sept. 21 to 25
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated Sept. 21 to 25, 2015, as SepticSmart Week.
It seems as though each day consumers are met with another story on another contaminant in their water, whether it is from a train car derailment and subsequent spill, mine disaster, natural disaster or other calamity.
Contamination issues dominate water quality concerns worldwide
Imagine surviving a natural disaster only to learn that clean water is nowhere to be found. Now imagine that same situation, and, with a tablespoon of salt, having the ability to create potable water within an hour.
Water is the Earth’s most precious resource—especially during times of need. The importance of fresh drinking water was the driving force behind HD Supply Waterworks’ donation of two WaterStep M-100 systems to the National Rural Water Assn. (NRWA).
Mobile water systems deployed to provide clean water in disaster situations
H2Zero Backwash/Recycle Systems conserve water by storing and treating contaminated backwash water from filtration and treatment systems. Nearly all water filtration-related processes that remove target contaminants generate liquid or solid residuals that need to be subsequently managed. Increasingly stringent regulatory discharge standards and emphasis on sustainability are demanding more environmentally friendly solutions for these residuals.
The technology was proven effective as a salt-free, no-chemical, no-power solution to the problem of calcium deposits due to hard water
A water scale prevention technology new to the U.S., but used in Europe for more than 40 years, has been validated by a General Services Administration (GSA) Green Proving Ground study.
The new invention maintains free-flowing water in low-flow irrigation networks.
Low-flow irrigation networks have become more in demand as agriculturalists have been working toward sustainability and saving water. A disadvantage with these types of systems is that they are inclined to plugging. CH2O Inc.'s Chairman, Carl E. Iverson, has invented a water treatment method which promotes water flow in low-flow irrigation networks, and it has been issued U.S. Patent Number RE45,550 E. Fish & Richardson P.C. provided legal assistance during the patent issuing process.
The ion exchange system was designed, manufactured, installed and started up in less than 90 days
Envirogen Technologies Inc. has started up a high-efficiency ion exchange system for the treatment of hexavalent chromium in drinking water supplies for California Water Service (Cal Water) in Salinas, Calf.
This is the first permitted full-scale system to go online for treating hexavalent chromium since California's Division of Drinking Water (DDW) released a new maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 µg/L in July of 2014. The ion exchange system will treat groundwater sourced from a well in the Cal Water system to be more than 20% lower than the MCL.
The ChloraBlock cartridge filter provides four times the chloramine-reducing capacity and twice the chlorine-reducing capacity of standard carbon blocks. Key features include a large quantity of catalytically active nitrogen groups for effective chloramine reduction, a binder system that maximizes the availability of catalytic sites and 1-µ nominal filtration. The filter is suited for commercial, industrial and residential POU applications.
