Water Treatment System

HOW DOES A DRINKING WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM WORK?
Our systems are designed to provide a continuous, whole-house, supply of bacterially safe drinking water from a pond, rainwater cistern, spring, or contaminated well. The treatment cycle consists off our basic elements:

1. Source Control and Rough Filtration. Drawing water through a Floating Pond Filter at a level approximately 18” below the water surface provides the cleanest possible water for treatment.

2. Chlorination. Immediately after the pump and pressure tank, the water supply is chlorinated using a automatic, electronic, injection chlorinator. The chlorinator injects a bleach solution directly into the pressurized water line each time the water pump runs. The system is easily adjusted to achieve the proper chlorine level.

3. Retention. Large fiberglass retention tanks allow the chlorine to evenly mix with the raw water. The tanks are sized to provide a minimum of 20 minutes contact time with the chlorine. A 20 minute contact time with the proper dose of chlorine ensures a thorough disinfection of the water supply.

4. Sand Filtration. (optional on rainwater cisterns) After the retention tanks, the disinfected water enters a pressurized, automatic backflush quartz sand filter. This filter reduces any remaining suspended solids from the water supply. The treated water is then plumbed into the main water system.

WHAT ARE THE SYSTEM CAPACITIES AND MAINTENANCE?
These systems can be sized to accommodate any required flow rate. Maintenance involves changing the replaceable filter element(s) in the Floating Filter and/or Roofwasher, and refilling the chlorine solution tank. The chlorinator uses common laundry bleach.
