Water Treatment System – Getting The Most From It.

 “IF I HAD 60 MINUTES TO SOLVE A PROBLEM, I WOULD SPEND 55 MINUTES DEFINING IT AND 5 MINUTES SOLVING IT “-ALBERT EINSTIEN

Well, the problem regarding water treatment is no exception.  Buying any water treatment system will not solve your problem, instead it may increase it, if enough consideration is not given to certain key questions that would help define the problem.  One needs to understand important factors before buying any water treatment system.

With the experience of 20+ years in the field of water purification, our advice to customers across industries has saved them considerable time, effort and money while choosing the right water treatment system for their businesses. Our suggestions on choosing the right water treatment solution have helped many organizations, institutions, builders, hotels & restaurants, food chains, amongst others.

Our experience shows us that there are specific problems that organizations face while looking for water treatment systems or solutions.

Though there may be a long list of factors one needs to consider. But most of them are directly or indirectly related to these 4:

  1. Source of Water
  2. Application of Water
  3. Expertise & Experience of Manufacturer
  4. Service Provided Post Sale

1) SOURCE OF WATER

First, look at the source of water, whether it is surface water (from lakes, rivers) or underground water (wells/bore wells). Test the water for parameters like TDS, turbidity, hardness and chemical components.  Normally, a water test as per IS 10500 is carried out to test for drinking water applications which will give the actual parameters as well as the permissible ranges.

Turbidity: Turbidity in water is due to the presence of suspended particulates in water. The more total suspended solids in the water, the murkier it seems and the higher the turbidity. Knowing the levels of turbidity can help to go with the correct filtration solution.  Turbidity levels in surface water are generally higher as compared to ground water.

Dissolved Solids: Water dissolves the minerals present in the soil e.g. Iron, fluorides, arsenic, lead, copper etc.  There are standards for permissible levels of TDS.  Generally, TDS level of groundwater is higher than that of surface water.

Hardness:  The presence of calcium and magnesium salts is a constituent of TDS.  Water with high TDS / hardness will have an unpleasant taste besides having other adverse issues like scaling.

Chemical contaminants:  Chemical Contamination of water may be natural or man-made.  The presence of biocides, inorganic chemicals like phosphates, nitrogen, pesticides, heavy metals, etc. There are 2 types of chemical contaminants in water, i.e. Organic and Inorganic.  Surface water generally has lower chemical contaminants than ground water.

Biological contaminants: Biological contaminants are bacteria, viruses, and molds. These can be either living or non-living contaminant. All the biological contaminants do not cause harm to our health. But some of the micro organisms can lead to serious diseases.

If TDS  (Total Dissolved Solids) levels of water are more than permissible limits of 500 ppm and Hardness is over 200 ppm,  then a Reverse Osmosis (RO) solution is needed.  However, if the TDS is low and the source is surface water, a UV (Ultra Violet) water purification system is more than sufficient besides being more economical.

2) APPLICATION

Based on the application and required water quality, you can choose from RO / UV or opt for a combination of UV- RO along with pre-filtration.  For water that is hard, you can opt for Softeners / Dual Media Filters, or Sand Carbon Filters (SCF).  The most important factor here is to know which the best combination for your application is.

3) THE EXPERIENCE OF THE MANUFACTURER OF WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM

If the solution provider has done enough installations for a similar application, it is likely that they will know what the challenges are and solutions for those challenges. Hence, the experience of the manufacturer or solution provider is critical.

Choosing a solution provider with limited experience and infrastructure can result in cost escalations, delays, service issues in the future.

The experience of the manufacturer or solution provider is not only about the number of installations, but also research, case studies and validation reports which may not be offered by a local water treatment solution provider.

4) SERVICE:

No matter what any organization says about their products, one should always check reviews of their services. It is important to check if the manufacturer or solution provider has their own experienced and well trained service team which can resolve your issue at the earliest.
