HAVE YOU HAD YOUR WATER ANALYZED TO LEARN THE CONTAMINANTS?
WE CAN HELP!
Advanced Water Solutions, Inc. offers a wide variety of commercial water filtration options. We understand that not all water supplies are equal, therefore have developed several systems to meet your individual commercial water filtration needs.
We have found that one standard approach to treating various contaminants in your water does not always work. Many times one treatment option that works on one water supply fails another with similar contaminants.
In order to properly design a water treatment system, a complete analysis must be done to identify all contaminants including inorganic and heavy metals in the water. This will allow us to provide you with a system that works well year after year. Contact our office for an individual evaluation and specific treatment options.
COMMON CONTAMINANTS ON THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA COAST
Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine or chloramines added to water and adjusting pH levels by cities, we have found it necessary to use catalytic carbon to ensure better chlorine & chloramine reduction. See our Whole House Chlorine Reduction page for more information.
Treatment – Activated Alumina or Bone Char filters and Reverse Osmosis. There are several common treatment options to remove/reduce arsenic from water supplies. One of which is Activated Alumina that is a physical process by which ions in the water are removed by the absorption sites on an oxide surface. This has proven to be a very effective treatment technique in the removal of Arsenic. Other treatment options of Arsenic in water supplies are Bone Char and Reverse Osmosis. A Reverse Osmosis system can be applied to the entire home or point of use (POU), generally for drinking water.
Treatment – To reduce Nitrates in water supplies we have found that the most effective method is the combination of a reverse osmosis system and resin media filter. The water is forced through a membrane in the reverse osmosis system which filters out the contaminants. A reverse osmosis system can be applied to the entire home or point of use (POU), generally for drinking water. The resin then uses ion exchange to “trade places” with nitrate in the water.
DIRT & SEDIMENT
Treatment – Dirt and sediment is generally found in all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and life span of your appliances. For example: sediment in a water heater does not allow the heat to transfer to the water in the tank once it has built up in the bottom. To avoid this headache POE (point of entry) whole house water filters can be applied to your home. To ensure that your entire home is protected these filters are added to the main incoming water line. Sediment filters come in various sizes to treat your individual needs.
IRON & MANGANESE
Treatment – Iron and Manganese cause similar problems because they are chemically similar. Therefore we are able to treat both contaminates with an ion exchange process. As with all our systems, this treatment method is adjusted based on your individual water analysis, water usage, and water quality requirements.
