  1. Chlorine impact dramatic over chloramine

  2. Chlorine impact dramatic over chloramine

    Water reports in the USA call out chloramine vs chlorine. Not sure what the standards call for, or if there are reporting standards in Chile. If you measure TOTAL chlorine, and FREE chlorine and there is a difference in the two, the difference is chloramine. http://www.buckeyehydro.com/insta-test-free-and-total-chlorine-test-strips/ If you want to access the water n real time at common residential flow rates, you'd run the water through a carbon filter. I'd recommend you do that at point-of-use rather than point-of-entry. In residential applications POU treatment for this purpose is usually with a sediment filter followed by a carbon block. Are you asking about a whole house RO system, or a point of use RO system? Either way, yes - RO water would be ideal for residential use. Russ

    And by all means don't give that water to a baby or a pregnant woman. Limit on Nitrate in drinking water is 10 ppm - you're at 4 times that. Get an RO system!

    The lab results for Santiago water seem fairly ordinary, except: Cerium - I'm not familiar with this and would need to do some homework before commenting on it. Chlorine - the US EPA limit for drinking water is 4 ppm. Santiago has 97 ppm.

    Ha! Well... something is screwed up. This is supposed to be drinking water? Are you confident in the lab results? 165 ppm chlorine??? 44 ppm Nitrate?? I wouldn't drink that water.

    Everything below Boron is in mg/L?
  7. Chlorine impact dramatic over chloramine

    Yep. This is one of the reasons water utilities are switching from chlorine to chloramine. As the water delivery pipelines get longer and longer as the suburbs expand, you can test for free chlorine at the end of the line and find none. Chloramine on the other hand, does not volatilize. Russ

    We use carbon tanks for chlorine removal, and CGAC in the tanks for chloramine treatment. The EBCT needed to threat the two disinfectants is different. Both can be successfully treated with backwashing carbon tanks for faster flows, and cartridge filters for slower flows. Russ

    Ha! No lookup necessary. Can speak the jargon of the water treatment world in my sleep
  10. Reverse Osmosis or Deionized water

    Don't forget to factor in the expected usable life span of the resin and the cost of the exchange tank. The higher the TDS of your feedwater, the faster you'll burn through a given volume of mixed bed DI resin. Russ
  11. reverse osmosis water system

    When you look to invest in this sort of system, assure it uses non-proprietary components. If you don't, you'll likely pay extra for your initial purchase, and you'll certainly pay extra for maintenance/operation. Russ

    Our distillery customers come to us for RO's - have yet to put a DI set up in a distillery. Russ

    Standard membrane sizes near yours are: 2521 (2.5" in diameter and 21" long), and 2540 (2.5" in diameter and 40" long). Hopefully your system uses standard-sized membranes. Russ

    Ha! Thanks for noticing!
