Water Softeners

 

Hard water contains large amounts of calcium and magnesium – two minerals that cause the soapy scum on glasses and lime residue on bathroom fixtures. While suitable for drinking and gardening, hard water can cause mineral build-up in water heaters, pipes, dishwashers and showerheads, reducing its flow. Soap and shampoo's ability to lather is reduced, and laundry becomes stiffer and duller in appearance.

 

Generally speaking, groundwater (well water taken from aquifers in the ground) is hard. Some municipalities in Canada use groundwater to supply water to residents. Residents, in small or rural communities, may not have municipal water services and get water from private or communal wells.

 

Imagine softer skin, shinier hair, smoother shaving…Dishes and glassware that sparkle and shine... Laundry that washes brighter, comes out softer, and lasts longer…Plumbing fixtures and appliances that are protected against corrosion and scale build-up. Let The Water Store professionals design the perfect water softening system for your home.

Reverse Osmosis

Water is a good solvent and picks up impurities easily.  Pure water -- tasteless, colorless, and odorless -- is often called the universal solvent. Dissolved solids refer to any minerals, salts, metals, cations or anions dissolved in water. Total dissolved solids (TDS) comprise inorganic salts (principally calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides and sulfates) and some small amounts of organic matter that are dissolved in water. TDS in drinking-water originates from natural sources, sewage, urban run-off, industrial wastewater, and chemicals used in the water treatment process, and the nature of the piping or hardware used to convey the water,  elevated TDS can also be caused by natural environmental features such as: mineral springs, carbonate deposits, salt deposits,  but other sources may include: salts used for road de-icing, anti-skid materials, drinking water treatment chemicals, stormwater and agricultural runoff.

 

Reverse osmosis is a water treatment process that forces water through an extremely fine membrane to remove dissolved minerals. Purified water passes through the membrane and collects in a storage container.  Most of the dissolved minerals in the water cannot pass through the membrane and are flushed away as waste. Small household reverse osmosis systems flush from three to twenty litres of water to waste for every litre of treated water. This flushing helps maintain treated water quality and prevent fouling of the membrane.

Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection

Ultraviolet disinfection of water consists of a purely physical, chemical-free process. UV-C radiation in particular, with a wavelength in the 240 to 280 nanometers range, attacks the vital DNA of the bacteria directly. The radiation initiates a photochemical reaction that destroys the genetic information contained in the DNA. The bacteria lose their reproductive capability and are destroyed. Even parasites such as Cryptosporidia or Giardia, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants, are efficiently reduced. UV can also be used to remove chlorine and chlormaine species from water ; this process is called photolysis, and requires a higher dose than normal disinfection. The sterilized microorganisms are not removed from the water. UV disinfection does not remove dissolved organics, inorganic compounds or particles in the water.  However, UV-oxidation processes can be used to simultaneously destroy trace chemical contaminants and provide high-level disinfection, such as the world's largest indirect potable reuse plant in Orange County, California.
