About water

The problem of water treatment is relevant in the world and Latvia is no exception. Not is of good quality even urban water due to secondary pollution in the old pipes. Enumerate briefly the problems which may be encountered inhabitants of Latvia.


Rigidity. The reason of the rigidity are dissolved in water minerals, mainly calcium and magnesium. Severity level can vary greatly. A higher level of stiffness creates a serious and lasting problem.
Tags: Education raid on plumbing, decrease or absence of soap suds detergent buildup in the water or scum in tanks of hot water, soap deposits. Rigidity shortens the life of the hardware, increases energy consumption for water heating, reduces the effectiveness of detergents.
Solution: Kinetico softeners eliminate stiffness and provide the necessary amount of soft water without the use of electricity.

Iron and manganese. Iron and manganese can be present in ground water and in the water system. These metals can be dissolved in water (divalent iron), may be in the form of solid particles (trivalent iron), may give a yellow-brown water color (organic iron) can create the color film on the water (bacterial iron). Both iron and manganese cause problems even when its content is low (0.3 mg / l - iron and 0.1 mg / l - manganese).

Tags: Orange, red or black stains on plumbing, the laundry or surfaces in contact with water. Metallic taste of water. High concentrations may lead to deposits in the water, in containers of hot water in the plumbing. Bacterial iron creates a color film on the surface of the settled water.
Solution: Kinetico offers several methods for removing iron and manganese. The specific method is chosen after reading the analysis of water.

Tastes and odors. Any taste and / or odor can make the water unfit for consumption. Tastes and odors include chlorine, iron, marsh, musty, salty, fishy smell of rotten eggs.

Tags: Taste and odor may come and go, but may remain constant, depending on the source of the problem. Typical sources are the following: chlorine - excess disinfectant; iron - the water contains iron, copper or other metals; marsh, musty, fishy - the presence of organic matter in the water; the smell of rotten eggs - hydrogen sulphide gas; salt - high salinity (total dissolved solids of 500 mg / l or more).

Solution: Depending on the source may require one or more systems for solving problems. For the removal of chlorine and organics used activated carbon. It should be borne in mind that the activated carbon requires periodic replacement. The frequency depends on the amount and quality of activated carbon, the concentration of chlorine and organic matter. Metallic taste deleted iron removal system. In addition to drinking water reverse osmosis system is used. With a high degree of salinity and the presence of nitrates, arsenic, heavy metals for drinking water must be used a reverse osmosis system. It should be borne in mind that unusual tastes and odors, the presence of phenol in water and other chemicals may be indicative of a very serious problem. In this case, need a complete water analysis and identification of the source of contamination. Before application of the source of pollution cleaning systems to be detected and, if possible, eliminated.
