IMPURITIES THAT YOU CAN SEE:

 

WATER SHOULD NOT HAVE SEDIMENTS (SOLIDS) IN IT.  IF A WATER WELL OR WATER SYSTEM HAS PROBLEMS WITH SAND OR OTHER MATERIALS ENTERING INTO IT, YOU MAY SEE SMALL PARTICLES IN A GLASS OF WATER.  SOMETIMES THE WATER MAY NOT BE CLEAR OR MAY HAVE A SLIGHT COLOR.  ORGANIC IMPURIES MAY INCLUDE ALGAE OR BACTERIA OR OTHER HARMFUL MICRO-ORGANISMS.

 

IMPURITIES YOU CAN TASTE OR SMELL:

 

OCCASIONALLY, DUE TO THE FACT THAT WATER DOES ABSORB MINERALS AND OTHER IMPURITIES, IT WILL HAVE AN UNUSUAL OR UNPLEASANT TASTE OR ODOR. MINERALS THAT DISSOLVE IN WATER ARE CALLED TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS (TDS) AND ARE LISTED BELOW.

 

IMPURITIES THAT YOU CAN’T SEE, TASTE OR SMELL THAT CAN AFFECT YOUR HEALTH:

 

WATER CAN ABSORB MINERALS LIKE LEAD AND RADIUM THAT CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS. IN SOME AREAS WATER MAY ALSO CONTAIN NITRATES. ARSENIC IS A COMMON FORM OF CONTAMINATION THAT HAS NO TASTE OR ODOR IN WATER. 

 

RADIOACTIVE ELEMENTS:

 

RADIUM 226 AND RADIUM 228 WHICH PRODUCE RADIOACTIVE RADON OCCURS NATURALLY IN MANY AREAS. WELLOG HAS TOOLS THAT MEASURE NATURAL GAMMA RADIATION FROM URANIUM, THORIUM AND POTASSIUM SURROUNDING THE WELL.

 

REMEMBER, YOU CANNOT SEE, TASTE OR SMELL MOST MINERAL AND ORGANIC IMPURITIES IN YOUR WATER!

 

REMOVAL BY FILTRATION:

 

FILTRATION WILL REMOVE PARTICLES THAT ARE LARGER THAN THE FILTER. FILTRATION WILL NOT REMOVE DISSOLVED SOLIDS AND MANY HAMFUL BACTERIA.

 

REMOVAL BY BOILING:

 

BOILING WATER IS VERY LABOR INTENSIVE.  BOILING WATER AT A HARD BOIL FOR AT LEAST 10 MINUTES WILL REMOVE PRACTICALLY ALL HARMFUL ORGANIC CONTAMINATION. BOILING WILL NOT REMOVE INORGANIC CONTAMINANTS INCLUDING SOLIDS.

 

REMOVAL BY DISTILLATION:

 

DISTILLATION REQUIRES HEATING, EVAPORATION AND CONDENSATION OF WATER TO REMOVE IMPURITIES. IT PROVIDES THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND ALSO AT THE HIGHEST PRICE.  DISTILLATION IS A VERY SLOW PROCESS.

 

REMOVAL BY REVERSE OSMOSIS:

 

REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO) IS THE FINEST FILTRATION METHOD AVAILABLE.  RO FILTRATION REMOVES CONTAMINANTS FROM WATER USING A SEMI-PERMEABLE MEMBRANE FILTER.  THIS METHOD USES A PROCESS CALLED CROSSFLOW THAT ALLOWS THE MEMBRANE TO BE SELF CLEANING.  CLEAN WATER PASSES THROUGH THE MEMBRANE AND THE REJECTED WATER PASSES DOWN STREAM AND IS REJECTED. REJECTED WATER IS DISCHARGED INTO A DRAIN OR MAY BE USED FOR WATERING PLANTS OR GARDENS. PURIFIED WATER IS STORED IN A SMALL PRESSURIZED TANK. PURIFIED WATER IS AVAILABLE FOR DRINKING OR AN MAY BE USED IN AN ICEMAKER.

 

  

“BOTTLED WATER” ON THE TAP!

 

WATER PURIFICATION IS USUALLY DONE USING REVERSE OSMOSIS. REVERSE OSMOSIS IS A METHOD OF PURIFYING WATER THAT REALLY WORKS! REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEMS CAN REMOVE 90 PERCENT OR MORE OF THE IMPURITIES FROM DRINKING WATER. THE SAME METHODS ARE USED BY MANY “BOTTLED WATER” PRODUCERS.

WITH YOUR OWN REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM, YOU GET “BOTTLED WATER” QUALITY FOR PENNIES PER GALLON!

 

NO MORE BUYING AND HAULING BOTTLED WATER!

 

MIXED FRUIT DRINKS, ICED TEA, ALL MIXED BEVERAGES AND ICE CUBES TASTE BETTER!

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE QUALITY OF YOUR DRINKING WATER!

 

TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS:

 

TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS (TDS) REPRESENT THE MAJORITY OF IMPURITIES IN WATER. THE LIST INCLUDES ALUMINUM, AMMONIUM, BORATE, BORON, BROMIDE, CADMIUM, CALCIUM, CHLORIDE, CHROMATE, COPPER, CYANIDE, FLUORIDE, IRON, LEAD, MAGNESIUM, MANGANESE, MERCURY, NICKEL, NITRATE, ORTHOPHOSPHATE, PHOSPHATE, POLYPHOSPHATE, POTASSIUM, RADIUM, SILICATE, SILVER, SODIUM, SULFATE, THIOSULFATE, ZINC. 

 

A METER THAT MEASURES TDS AND GIVES A TDS READING IN PARTS PER MILLION (ppm) IS A GOOD PLACE TO START. IT ONLY TAKES A FEW SECONDS FOR WELLOG TO MEASURE THE ACTUAL TDS IN YOUR WATER.  THE EFFICIENCY OF AN EXISTING REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM CAN BE MEASURED BY COMPARING TDS INPUT TO TDS OUTPUT.

 

ORGANIC IMPURITIES:

 

ORGANIC IMPURITIES CAN ALSO BE REMOVED USING REVERSE OSMOSIS.  IN CASES WHERE DISINFECTION IS NEEDED, AN IN-LINE ULTRAVIOLET (UV) LAMP WILL IMPROVE DISINFECTION BY KILLING UNWANTED MICRO-ORGANISMS. VISIT OUR PAGE ON HOW UV LIGHT KILLS MICRO-ORGANISMS.

 

A TYPICAL REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM:

 

TYPICAL PURIFICATION SYSTEMS MAY HAVE FIVE OR MORE STAGES.

 

  1. SEDIMENT FILTER - POLYPROPYLENE 10 MICRON - REMOVES SEDIMENT
  2. CARBON FILTER – GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON – REMOVES ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS
  3. CARBON BLOCK FILTER – FURTHER REFINES GRAULAR ACTIVATED CARBON FILTRATION TO 5 MICRON LEVEL
  4. REVERSE OSMOSIS FILTER – THIN FILM COMPOSITE – REMOVES 98 PERCENT OF TDS
  5. FINAL CARBON FILTER – GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON – POLISHES THE TASTE OF THE WATER
  6. KDF FILTER - REMOVES HEAVY METALS AND CHLORINE (OPTIONAL)
  7. UV LAMP FILTER – KILLS INFECTIOUS MICROBIAL ORGANISMS (OPTIONAL)

 

REJECTED WATER:

 

REVERSE OSMOSIS FILTRATION IS SELF CLEANING. REJECTED WATER IS SENT TO A DISCHARGE TUBE RATHER THAN REMAINING IN THE FILTRATION SYSTEM.  DISCHARGED WATER HAS SLIGHTLY HIGHER LEVELS OF TDS AND MAY BE SENT DOWN THE DRAIN OR USED FOR WATERING A GARDEN OR PLANTS .  ZERO LOSS SYSTEMS USE A PUMP TO CYCLE THE DISCHARGE WATER TO THE HOT WATER TANK.

 

YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM NOW:

 

WELLOG HAS THE TOOLS TO GIVE YOU “BOTTLED WATER” FOR PENNIES PER GALLON!

 

RESIDENTIAL SYSTEMS START AT $300.00 INSTALLED.

 

COMMERCIAL RO SYSTEMS:

 

LIGHT COMMERCIAL SYSTEMS 100 TO 300 GALLONS PER DAY; CALL FOR COST AND AVAILABILITY.

 

HEAVY COMMERCIAL SYSTEMS 450 TO 10,000 GALLONS PER DAY; CALL FOR COST AND AVAILABILITY.

 

WELL CLEANING:

 

NOTHING CAN HELP MORE TO IMPROVE WATER QUALITY THAN A CLEAN WELL.  WELL CLEANING, BRUSHING, SWABBING, JETTING, BAILING AND CHEMICAL TREATMENT METHODS ARE AVAILABLE TO IMPROVE WATER QUALITY AND WATER QUANTITY AT THE POINT WHERE IT MATTERS THE MOST!

 

WELL VIDEO:

 

WELLOG can perform a color video inspection of your well. A video inspection will reveal the condition of the well casing including corrosion, casing breaks and visibility conditions in the well.
