About The System
a) Optional - Removal of Calcium (Hardness) with a Softener.
Once calcium is removed, our water treatment equipment is protected from
any unnecessary scaling problems.
b) Chlorine removal with a Carbon Filter to protect the Reverse
First the water flows through a 5 micron Sediment Filter to remove
dirt, rust and other sediment. The water then flows through a 10 micron Carbon
Filter to remove chlorine and organic chemicals. Next the
process involves the removal of the Total Dissolved Solids (T.D.S.) by the
Reverse Osmosis Membrane. This process effectively removes the T.D.S.
below 10 PPM.
Quality Water is then stored in a R.O. rated Storage Tank with an
automatic level control.
From the Storage Tank, the water is pumped to the Water Filling
Station with a food grade delivery pump.
The water then travels through a taste and odour Polish Filter to
remove any possible taste issues. The water then passes through an Ultra
Violet Sterilizer to destroy bacteria. Pure, clean water is then
available to the consumer to fill their bottles with the push of a button,
An Ozonator is used to keep R.O. water at the highest quality.
A Bottle Washer is used to insure customer jugs are clean and
sterlized before filling with purified water.
Note: All equipment must be monitored monthly to ensure
continued production of high quality water and to prevent costly down time.
What Is Reverse Osmosis?
In the R.O. process, water molecules are forced through an
extremely fine (0.0001 micron), thin film composite (TFC) semi-permeable
membrane by water pressure.
What is semi-permeable membrane?
A semi-permeable membrane will allow certain molecules or ions to
pass through it but not others. An R.O. membrane allows pure water to pass
through it while rejecting the contaminants too large to fit through the
membrane’s pores such as salt ions and other small molecules that cannot be
What Is Removed?
This process eliminates almost all the impurities, which include
sediments, metals, minerals and chemicals. See Removal Chart below for more
The pure water produced is collected in a holding tank, while the
substances left behind are automatically diverted to a waste drain so they
don't build up in the system. By using part of the feed water, the
rejected substances are flushed away keeping the membrane clean and effective
for years to come.
Although the R.O. process is perfect for municipal sources of
water, it cannot be the only level of purification for sources that could have
biological contaminants such as pond, well, lake, or even cistern water.
An Ultra Violet Sterilizer is then necessary to eliminate all bacteria and
viruses from the water.
Who Uses It?
This pure, clean water produced is not only great tasting drinking
water for the home and office but has many other purposes in laboratories, ice
& bottled water industry, manufacturing, and in medical fields.
